Janet has had quite a year with award shows. This year alone the singer received the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards, the Global Icon Award at the MTV EMAs, and the Impact Award at the Radio Disney Music Awards. And, to add to this ongoing list, it was announced yesterday that the “Together Again” singer is being recruited into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

BTS presented Janet with the Worldwide Inspiration Award. During her speech, Janet went over what the award meant to her as a Black woman.

The singer posted a video of her meeting BTS backstage, and you can tell BTS was trying so hard not to fanboy.
