Grab your passport and prepare for a journey to rhythm nation, people, because Janet Jackson is officially back in action.

In addition to performing, Jackson will also join the ranks of Prince, Cher and Céline Dion, and receive an Icon Award. The award comes as no surprise, as the “Nasty” singer has been in the spotlight for nearly 50 years and has won ten Billboard awards. NBD.

The 2018 Billboard Awards will air live on Sunday, May 20, on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Until then, we’ll be freshening up our high school “Escapade” dance routine. Ya know, just in case.
