Now that Michael Jackson's body has finally been laid to rest, it looks like his sister Janet Jackson is planning to pull out all the stops for a one-time tribute to the King of Pop at next weekend's MTV Video Music Awards.

According to TMZ, Janet and her crew of around 20 backup dancers have been rehearsing around the clock — up to 15 hours in a single day — for Sunday night's annual awards spectacle.

Janet, who has remained relatively quiet in the wake of her family's tragic loss, is reportedly working on the tribute with some of the world's top choreographers, including Frank Gatson and Travis Payne.

One dancer involved in the project tells TMZ "there won't be a dry eye in the house" at the end of the number.

You'll just have to wait until Sunday, Sept. 13 to see for yourself.
