      Extra Info:
      Janet Jackson explains to Don Cornelius how, even though her first LP (1982's Janet Jackson) was good, her new album (Dream Street) shows her growing up and "graduating" to the next level. She also explains her new role on NBC's "Fame" as Cleo Hewitt. Beau Williams wins the dancers over during the last refrain of "You Are The One" when he goes, as he explains it, "above F over the natural high C range." Beau also tries to moonwalk during "Don't Say No" and fails.
