'Auditioning for Janet feels like a dream fantasy,' one hopeful dancer says in voiceover. Janet caused a stir when she announced plans to record a new album and go on tour late last month.
She whet appetites by posting a video teaser online, saying: 'I promised you'd hear it from my lips and now you will. This year: new music; new world tour; a new movement. I've been listening. Let's keep the conversation going.'
In her personal life, Janet has been married to billionaire Wissam Al Mana for three years.
