Janet Jackson's duet with deceased brother Michael

Janet Jackson will perform a virtual duet with her deceased brother Michael in London this week.

The singer - whose pop legend sibling died two years ago from acute Propofol intoxication - will perform three dates at the UK capital's Royal Albert Hall from Thursday and says singing their 1995 duet Scream with her brother makes her feel closer to him.

Speaking to radio station Heart FM, she said: "It's therapeutic, you know and it makes me smile inside. I mean the energy of the song is fierce but makes it makes me smile inside when I hear him, when I hear his voice."

While Janet can't wait to perform at the "special" Royal Albert Hall, she will be hoping to avoid a repeat performance of her last appearance there when she accidentally flashed Queen Elizabeth.

She explained: "I performed Rhythm Nation there, in front of Her Majesty the Queen and on stage I split my pants, or trousers as you'd say! I bent over and I ripped my pants right down the middle, right in the middle of dancing but I had to finish the song. So my booty is hanging out but what can you do, it was so embarrassing."
