Janet Jackson will help pay tribute to her brother Michael at Sunday's Video Music Awards on MTV.  She will open the show, which we're sure will be filled with references to Michael Jackson's legacy.

If you haven't seen it, the VMAs are running a clever commercial tagging the salute to the King of Pop that opens with a sequined glove falling from the sky onto a New York taxi cab windshield. The single glove is followed by a storm of sequined gloves. Finally, a voice over says something like "The King of Pop reigns" Sunday night at the VMAs.

In addition to Janet Jackson, other acts confirmed to appear include Pink, Katy Perry, Green Day, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.
