While fans are leaning towards Halle Bailey for the role of Janet Jackson in the Michael Jackson biopic, it’s important to note that Teyana Taylor shares a close bond with the legendary Janet Jackson. This personal connection could bring depth and authenticity to her portrayal on screen.

With the buzz around the Michael Jackson biopic reaching a fever pitch, the burning question on everyone’s lips is: Who will be the one to bring the iconic Janet Jackson to life on the big screen?

The top two candidates selected by the internet are Teyana Tayor and Halle Bailey.

The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua, stars Jaafar Jackson as Michael Jackson, Colman Domingo as Joe Jackson, and Nia Long as Katherine Jackson. The casting of Janet Jackson, the family’s baby—has not been publicly disclosed.

With her recent performance as Ariel in Disney’s live-action “The Little Mermaid,” Halle Bailey wowed audiences. She infused each role with a vibrant new energy. Because of her acting skills and strong vocals, she is a strong contender for the role of pop icon Janet Jackson, who is renowned for her dynamic performances.

Conversely, Teyana Taylor is familiar with the big screen and the music business. Taylor epitomizes a multifaceted artist with her unique style and many successful music and film endeavors. Her background as an actress, singer, and dancer is ideal for playing a legend like Janet Jackson.

Also, the 32-year-old mother of two revealed she is “already working on” a biopic of singer Dionne Warwick as she discussed her new film A Thousand and One on the Tamron Hall Show.


Obviously, giving her a teeny-tiny advantage over Halle Bailey – or not?

Whether it stars Halle Bailey or Teyana Taylor, one thing is sure: the Michael Jackson biopic will be a historic movie honoring the lives and contributions of two of the most significant people in music history.
