“It was a meeting of two great musical minds. was so impressed with Janet’s tribute to Michael that they started talking about how great it would be to honor him by doing something together,” a source said. “With that one performance Janet proved she’s back on top of her game.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, which was held in New York, Madonna admitted she was only attending the bash to pay her respects to Michael. “Now I’ve finally had chance to say farewell to my dear friend. I can now say I have paid my respects to Michael. That’s why I’m here. To say goodbye,” she told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. And Janet’s performance was amazing - just the perfect tribute to her brother.”

Madonna’s manager recently revealed that the “4 Minutes” singer had hoped to join Michael on stage during his This Is It London tour. “A month ago, Madonna told me she wanted to do a surprise performance at one of Michael Jackson’s UK shows,” he wrote on Twitter.
