Nico-archembault

Ask any dancer and they’ll tell you: Performing alongside Madonna, Britney, Justin, and Janet is the ultimate goal. Well So You Think You Can Dance Canada season one winner Nico Archambault is about to find out what it’s like.

The Montreal-native has been personally selected by Janet (Miss Jackon if you’re nasty) to perform on stage with her this Sunday, November 22nd at the American Music Awards.

Nico, who was also invited by This Is It director Kenny Ortega to audition for MJ’s ill-fated comeback, is honoured by the opportunity. “Every dancer has dreamed of performing with Janet Jackson. She is an icon and a pop music innovator. I grew up inspired by her landmark videos and live performances. I’m truly honored and privileged to have been chosen to dance alongside her!”  —L.L.
