Janet Jackson She was not oblivious to the technical difficulties plaguing Essence Festival – losing her voice in the middle of her performance…but she managed to eliminate it regardless.
The singer was one of the highlights of NOLA’s concert series this weekend at Caesars Superdome… where TONS performed with mega-stars in a Coachella-like event. Which was also comparable… sound issues often occur in a live broadcast.
Janet is no exception, unfortunately, as during her set… her mic seemed to cut out while she was speaking or singing, as seen here in video obtained by TMZ.
The good news is that this little hiccup seemed to go almost unnoticed, and the rest of Janet’s time on stage was a smash hit… she went from hit to hit for over an hour, leaving fans more than satisfied with the melodies and choreography.
Now it’s worth noting…there seem to have been quite a few audio issues over the past two days of activity – including complaints about Halle and Chloe Bailey’s set, with people saying their levels were turned off and they looked funky. live audience.
C/H’s sound was the least of some people’s concerns… More viewers at home were furious that Hulu only aired their latest song… and that’s a recurring theme at the festival – all subscribers watching on Hulu in Indeed.
It was probably the highlight of the Friday show, when Nicki Minaj grabbed headlines all night…even though her performance didn’t end up on Hulu’s show.
Angela Yee – who was organizing her homework that evening – noted that she would not be able to show Nikki’s set to fans at home, citing “circumstances beyond our control”. NM has performed before… and expressed frustration with everything that was happening to BTS.
In light of Nikki’s incidents — as well as other artists here and there — many were daring Essence/Hulu to mess up Janet’s band (jokingly), saying there would be trouble if they did.
Welp, they ended up spoiling the dog a bit for JJ after all…but no harm done. She continued to walk like a pro and seemed to put a big number on everyone.
I hope they can get together one last night!
