Destiny’s Child, ‘N Sync, Macy Gray and Outkast will give it up for Janet Jackson in the inaugural “mtvICON,” a new annual special honoring artists who’ve influenced music videos and who’ve had a significant impact on fans and other artists.

“mtvICON: Janet Jackson” will air on March 13 and will feature an overview of Jackson’s 16-year recording and video career, as well as interviews with artists whose careers have been influenced by Jackson. The night’s performers will each cover a Jackson song, though their particular selections were unavailable at press time.

“Janet Jackson is an awesome individual,” Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams said in a statement. “Her music has always kept me dancing. … She is the total entertainer.”

‘N Sync will perform a “special vocal tribute,” and Jackson herself will sing the show’s finale.

Jackson is wrapping up a new album with producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. No release date has been set.
