She has shocked, sung, danced and even nip-slipped.
With pop icon Janet Jackson coming to the Sunshine State this fall as part of her Unbreakable World Tour, let's take a look back at some of her most memorable moments.

2. Michael Jackson Tribute at the VMA's
Just months after the death of Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson opened the 2009 VMA Awards with a tribute to her late brother and it blew us away. 
3. Dramatic Weight Loss
In 2006, jaws dropped when Jackson appeared on the cover of US Weekly and announced that she had lost 60 pounds in just four months.

4. Super Bowl Nip-Slip

While you probably forgot the score of the 2004 Super Bowl game, there's a good chance you didn't forget the half time performance, where Jackson and Justin Timberlake found themselves in the middle of a nip slip situation.
