Music lovers in Abu Dhabi were treated to a "masterful" performance by one of the biggest names in pop earlier this week.Janet Jackson recently performed at the Yas Arena in the emirate and reduced many of her fans to tears with her performance, Gulf News reported.The news provider explained that the pop veteran did not rely on visual trickery and flamboyant stage sets, instead opting for a simple design and powerful singing.Jackson told the crowd that she had enjoyed every minute of her performance and claimed that her late brother Michael was very fond of the UAE."Abu Dhabi, this is my first time performing in the Middle East. You have no idea how much I love you. Thank you for your support. You know my brother was crazy about this part of the world," the singer is quoted as saying.The star is just one of many looking to make their mark in the Middle East, with Metallica and Britney Spears set to make appearances in the near future.
