The World of Dance judge posted a side by side photo to Instagram of her and Jackson on stage in 2001 and now in 2017. Within the post, Tatum thanked the 51-year-old for giving her a career.

Last night was such an incredible moment. Janet asked her "kids" to come back and perform rhythm nation at the Hollywood Bowl. I dreamt of dancing with her since I was a kid and literally pinched myself every night of the All for You tour. And here I am pinching myself again last night. She created a legacy for her dancers and she personally began my career! It all begins with Jan. Thank you for this my love!!!
