Rehearsals are wrapping up for Janet and the Billboard stage is set for Janet and the stars tonight as she receives her Billboard Icon Award-in addition to the Design of a Decade star performing on national television for the first time in almost a decade.

Lives will be had tonight and dreams realized for two lucky contests of the 75,000 that auditioned for the #DanceWithJanet competition.
