Ciara delivered an electrifying performance at the Billboard Music Awards performance on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old singer, who has often cited Janet and her brother Michael Jackson as her biggest influences, channeled Janet with her music and her unique outfit.
Ciara took to the stage with a unique pinstriped suit that appeared to be an homage to several iconic Janet Jackson music videos, which fans noticed on social media.
Ciara rocked a pinstriped suit while performing her new song Thinkin’ Bout You, which appeared to be a reference to Janet Jackson’s pinstriped suit from her 1989 music video for Alright.
The pinstriped suit wasn’t an exact match, though, since Janet wore a fully suit with a dress shirt and tie, and a matching hat, and Ciara’s was much more loose-fitting.
Instead of a shirt and tie, Ciara opted for a matching crop top with black gloves and boots, which may have been inspired by another Janet Jackson video.
