The full line-up of headliners for Glastonbury 2019 was announced this week, listing The Killers, The Cure, Stormzy, Kylie and Janet Jackson as the big five performers – in that order.

However, it seems as though Jackson wasn't happy with being listed last, as the version of the line-up poster shared on her social media – and only her social media, as far as we can see – lists the Rhythm Nation singer first on the bill.

Scottish DJ, Callum Gallacher, pointed out the minor edit on Twitter, writing, "Howling. Janet Jackson has reposted the Glastonbury lineup and bumped herself up a bit".

He added both the original poster and Jackson's version in his Tweet:

Other fans have noticed the little edit, and replied to Jackson's Tweet. One said "I love the Photoshop", while another added, "Poster [is] a bit different" with an inquisitive face emoji.

Jackson, along with The Killers and The Cure, was confirmed on March 15 to be playing at the British music festival in June this year.

This will be the first time the American singer takes to the stage at the famed festival in Somerset. Other first-timers who have been confirmed for the line-up include fellow American artists, Ms Lauryn Hill and Miley Cyrus.

Kylie Minogue has also been confirmed to play on the Sunday afternoon (the final day of the festival). Her slot on the bill comes 14 years after she forced to cancel her Glastonbury gig due to breast cancer.

In her Twitter announcement she chose to use a photo of herself, alone, with the Glastonbury branding:
