Janet Jackson's superfans who paid extra money to attend her pop-up museum before her concert got the surprise of a lifetime. They thought they were looking at a statue of Jackson, alongside her paraphernalia, but instead, it was Jackson in the flesh.

Jackson posed as a statue of herself and then came to life, startling her fans, who were super excited to see the icon. 

"I saw her and I said, 'Oh my God! That's her!" one fan exclaimed. 

Jackson is probably super grateful to her fans, since Unbreakable, her 11th album, is her seventh album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
