The King of Pop was said to have been highly impressed with the vocals of the 23-year-old and was allegedly eager to take her on his side as he performs 50 ‘This Is It’ concerts at the O2 arena in London.

“Michael has a list of singers he feels could do Janet justice - and Leona is top,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

“He hasn’t approached her yet but he’s a big fan of everything she has achieved.

“She’s massive all around the world and he feels this duet would give both their careers an even bigger boost,” the source added.

Leona, who has reined the charts in more than 30 countries, had previously expressed her admiration for the 50-year-old singer.

She said: “He’s still a legend. I think his performances are incredible and his shows are great.” (ANI)
