*We’re not sure why, but of all the artist she could’ve tapped, Janet Jackson has chosen a basically unknown (if you’re an adult, over the age of 35, her primary audience) teen group called Mindless Behavior to be the opening act on 12 of her North American “NUMBER ONES: Up Close & Personal Tour” dates.
Yes, we can all let out a collective “Who?!” and “Why?!”
If you’ve never experienced Mindless Behavior, just scroll down a check out their video for “My Girl.” No, it’s not a cover of the Temptations classic. BTW, the song has over 4 million plays on YouTube, so what do we know?
The group will perform with Miss Jackson in Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Uncasville, New York and Washington, DC (see all dates below).
“It’s exciting to have Mindless Behavior open for me in these cities because they are enriching our global community with their love of music. I first listened to them on You Tube and think they are great. I hope you enjoy these kids as much as I do, they are very talented,” said Janet.
She added that the group is seriously adding a bit of flavor to their goal of enriching the global community through their music. Mindless Behavior, a group of four 13-year-old boys, was first discovered by the multi-talented singer via YouTube. From there she became fascinated with their sheer talent and had to get them on tour.
“We’re so excited to be joining someone as legendary as Janet Jackson on her tour, we can’t wait to perform on her stage and show the crowd how to get Mindless!” said Princeton of Mindless Behavior.
