A grieving Janet Jackson insisted on making an appearance at the BET Awards in LA on June 28, in order to honor her late brother Michael. The singer, wearing all white, surprised the audience when she walked out onto the stage at the end of the show, escorted by Jamie Foxx. "My entire family wanted to be here tonight but it was just too painful," she said, wiping a tear from her eye. "I just wanted to say that to you Michael is an icon, to us Michael is family, and he will forever live in all of our hearts. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love, thank you for all of your support," Janet continued. Her voice cracked as she blinked back tears while declaring, "We miss him so much."
