Janet Jackson will guest-star as herself in the Sept. 23 episode of NBC sitcom Will & Grace, the network announced Tuesday. In the episode, Jack, played by Sean Hayes, auditions to be a dancer.
The appearance is Jackson’s first on a comedy series since her turn on Diff'rent Strokes 20 years ago.
NBC’s announcement comes a day after the FCC denied an indecency complaint lodged against KSAZ Phoenix, Ariz., for the March 2003 broadcast of Will & Grace. Jackson’s breast-baring performance during the halftime show at this year’s Super Bowl created an indecency uproar.
