Janet Jackson opens her 2017 State of the World tour in the Cajundome this Thursday night with a mega stage, dancers and a ton of hits.  Jackson is one of the top selling female artists of all time.  She carries the legendary family name, recently divorced, a new mom and now the start of a brand new tour.  This tour will be grueling on the female superstar.  She's reportedly lost over 70 pounds getting in shape for it.  So has she been in Lafayette preparing and rehearsing every move?

The unofficial report is yes.  A few anonymous photos have been seen of rehearsals in the Cajundome since last week.  Janet was reportedly in town during Hurricane Harvey.  People attending events in the Cajundome Convention Center claim they've heard loud Janet Jackson music coming from inside the dome.  One eyewitness tried to sneak in but was stopped by "large bodyguards at each entrance".

CJ and Debbie Ray in the Morning will giveaway tickets every morning this week, even this Thursday, the morning of the Janet Jackson concert.  Listen at 7:20AM to win yours!
