Bruno Mars bows down to the legendary Janet Jackson while presenting her with the Icon Award at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday (May 20) in Las Vegas.

“The name ‘Jackson’ represents artistic genius and iconic performance,” Bruno said while presenting the award. “The Jacksons are music royalty and the first family of entertainment…She is an activist… She’s a humanitarian. She’s a powerful woman. And she is the first black woman to receive the Billboard Icon Award.”

During her acceptance speech, Janet referenced the Me Too movement.

“I believe that for all the challenges, for all our challenges, we live at a glorious moment in history,” she said. “It’s a moment where at long last, women have made it clear that we will no longer be controlled, manipulated or abused. I stand with those women and with those men equally outraged by discrimination who support us in heart and mind.”
