Then, during "Together Again", images of Janet with her late father Joe appeared on the screen. "I miss you. I love you. Both of you." she said. The 52-year-old then sang lyrics from her number one hit that resonated with that moment. "What I'd give just to hold you close as on earth / In heaven we will be together, baby (together) / Together again, my baby (together again, baby)."

Janet paid tribute to Michael shortly after he passed by doing a medley of his songs at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. She also spoke kind words about Joe while accepting an award back in June.
