It was a family reunion of sorts during Janet Jackson’s sold-out concert at the Hollywood Bowl Sunday night as a bunch of her former backup dancers, including Jenna Dewan Tatum, took the stage for one last collective hurrah.

In a touching speech to acknowledge the crew, Janet, 51, described her dancers as a “family” and introduced each of the “kids” one by one.

Before the show, Dewan Tatum, 36, shared an Instagram previewing the night’s events.

“Generations of Janet kids brought together…!” she wrote. “Dancing for her was always way more than a job, it was being part of a legacy. I have been pinching myself all day being in a room years later dancing with these legends. Excited to share soon.”


Janet followed with an IG post of her own to celebrate the reunion.

“Last night in LA, generations of my former dancers together again,” she wrote in the caption, using #SOTW in reference to her current State of the World Tour.
