I'm pretty sure she didn't sing a note live when I saw her in 2011 but it was still one of the best concerts I've ever been to. Her energy and stage presence is amazing.

It's hard to tell how much of it is live. It's obvious that *some* of it is mimed...as she's furiously dancing at the same time the vocals sound crystal-clear and perfect. But. I do have to say...the singing we heard rarely sounded like the album recordings and reflected how her voice has changed over time. I realize that doesn't necessarily mean it's live. She could've just re-recorded the vocals. There were moments she let the crowd sing instead of her...or when she stopped singing for some audience interaction. Are those lapses in vocals also pre-recorded? She's been miming so long, I guess she could have gotten pretty good at it by now.

Anyway. Point being. I really have no idea. My stab in the dark is that the show was about half live. Maybe that's optimistic. Maybe that's cynical. Beats me. I can say I truly had a great time and loved the setlist. But. I do understand the concern about live singing. We honestly shouldn't just dismiss that the way we often do for pop acts.

They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am ever grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon' b alright.

Janet Jackson Undergoing Tests For Throat Cancer

It has been reported that superstar Janet Jackson is currently undergoing tests for throat cancer.

The report comes after the 49-year-old singer revealed that she had no choice but to postpone the first dates of the next leg of her ‘Unbreakable World Tour’, which was due to kick off on January 9th, as she needed to undergo surgery.

It is now being claimed that doctors have discovered a tumour on her vocal chords.

A source revealed: “Doctors found a growth on Janet’s vocal chords that could be serious

“It’s a medical condition that has to be taken care of immediately.”

In spite of the very serious health scare, Janet is said to be optimistic about hitting the road later on in the year, with the insider adding to RadarOnline: “Janet said she knows that with prayers and her will, she’ll be back out on the road in the spring or early summer.”

Janet previously postponed shows in October in order to rest her voice, and doctors have now sadly warned that if she is battling cancer then she might be left unable to sing.

Speaking to the site, Dr. Stuart Fischer explained: “God forbid that this should be cancer of the larynx. That would abruptly end her ability to ever perform again. Singing would be impossible.

“Surgery would be very complex, and followed by months of radiation treatment.”

Janet tried to remain upbeat as she posted a statement explaining why she had to postpone her tour on her website, writing: “Hey you guys…Happy Holidays to each and every one of you!

“I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the ‘Unbreakable Tour’ until the spring.

“Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time…There will be no further comment.”

She posted a short video with The Great Forever playing. At the end of the video she says:

Remember... believe it when you hear it from my lips.

The rumors are untrue.
I do not have cancer.
I'm recovering.
My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled.
Thank you for your prayers and love.
