Video: Janelle Monae Performs On ‘So You Think You Can Dance’

Published: Friday 6th Aug 2010 by Sam

Burgeoning star Janelle Monae brought her unique brand of funk to the So You Think You Can Dance stage last night. Check out the performer’s stunning live rendition of ‘Tightrope’ below…

Awesome! It’s great to see light being shone on true talent. Here’s hoping all this acclaim Monae is on the receiving end of as of late translates into commercial success too.

Your thoughts?

    OMG!!!! I’m sooo proud of her, I could cry!!!

    I’ve been riding for her since day one, and although I believed in her, I never thought she would be on shows like this or No.1 trending topic on Twitter!!!

    It’s something very annoying about her!

    LOVE HER!

    I wish her much success “Do you mind? If I play the ukulele, Just like a little lady”

    @ROYALKEV, Why post anything negative about true talent? You’re such a hater – lol, grow up. Hating on talent has BEEN out of style. Hating on a God given gift is like hating on God.

    Grow up chile, Janelle Monae ROCKED it!!!!

    It’s ok…She’s been having this style for the last five years. Many of you are JUST NOW noticing her. She SWAGGA JACKED Andre 3000’s style.

    ^^^ So André once had the habit of wearing only tuxedos? I didn’t know that…

    Anyway, did anyone else notice her voice sounded oddly squeaky in this performance? Nonetheless, she’s a great performer, and I’m starting to get mad at Diddy for not promoting her more.

    THIS IS PROB THE BEST PERFORMANCE I’VE SEEN HER DO OF THIS SONG. SHE REALLY DESERVES ALL THE SUCESS THAT IS COMING HER WAY.

    @KM… well, she’s annoying! I didn’t check it out her performance to hate on her. I was being objective, it’s just that I didn’t care for what I saw! It happens! Maybe, I’ll like something else she has to offer. Although, I seriously doubt it! 🙂

    Yet another amazing performance from this talented young woman! She is definitely the BEST URBAN/BLACK performer out right now and is ONE OF THE BEST PERFORMERS of today. I’m glad she’s not shaking her a** or lace front wig and long hair weave in her performances or dressing in kooky outfits and using shock factors to “wow” the crowd. I just love how alive her performances are! She has so much energy, sass, class, and stage presence. I’m not really a fan of her music, but I absolutely love her performances and respect her craft!

  15. smartee August 6, 2010

    Oh and, she’s a very intelligent woman, that’s exactly why she’s making sure she gets her own publicity separate from Diddy/Bad Boy, but she needs to leave his a** ASAP! If she didn’t have her own people, her a** wouldn’t even have released an album or performance on mainstream shows but she needs a much better label who’s going to market her to a larger crowd. She’s a legend in the making.

  16. Val August 6, 2010

    @ Smartee

    LOL. Yeah, even Diddy said on Twitter that she hates when he promotes her. XD

    But yes, she’s *very* smart, and not just intellectually. God-given talent. And a future LEGEND. She’s going to be around for a really long time. This woman deserves all the accolades and success coming her way.

  17. TonyP2210 August 6, 2010

    I’m tired of this look ..but hey she is saving money….but I know she will get dropped after all this promo and no album sales …no one is checking for this chick

  18. EXPOSED August 6, 2010

    TERRIFIC!!!! JAMES BROWN REINCARNATED. FINALLY AN ACT THAT KEPT ME ON THE EDGE OF THE SEAT.

    QUESTION, WHEN IS SHE COMING OUT A LESBO?? JUST ASKIN… *SNICKER*

  19. The AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    Not sure about sales, but I’m in Europe right now and this album is everywhere – even like tiny supermarkets in villages way up in the mountains.

  20. True Blue August 6, 2010

    ^^^ Real music fans care about the music, idiots on the other hand care about a musician’s personal life, which is irrelevant to their work.

    You ain’t giving Dave Chapelle a run for his money, so pick more original material the next time you want to garner laughs.

  21. DeE August 6, 2010

    Yup……know yall had to notice the JB moves

  22. TheTallTreeGuy August 6, 2010

    When she come on the So You Think You Can Dance show last night, all conversation in the room stopped……simply stopped. WOW And this was group of 45-55 year old people who had stunned smiles on their faces, listening and watching her. What a talent! More! More! More! PLEASE! lol

  23. AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE
    Entirely agree

  24. The AlexanderTG August 6, 2010

    Why don’t any of my post appear – this is way annoying!

  25. NUNYA August 6, 2010

    I also say she swagger jacked Andre 3000, just look at her. Anyway i said this on another site a while ago, shes going to get nominated for some grammys. Shes not my cup of tea, I like when people are different but in this case it dont work for me.

  26. JAZ0195 August 6, 2010

    We need more real talent in the indusry instead of non singing women who only get on stage shake their a** pop their c******.

  27. PLAIN AND SIMPLE August 7, 2010

    Great Job

  28. childboo August 7, 2010

    THERES ABSOLUTLY NOTHING ANNOYING ABOUT THIS WOMEN SHE SO TALENT YOU HAVE TO BE A DAMN FOOL NOT TO LIKE HER

    #TIGHTROPE

  29. greg g August 7, 2010

    AMAZING

  30. S. Alexandryte August 27, 2010

    Now that’s true talent that is needed in this ‘everyone wants to be whatever’ kind of world. Yeah to J Monae!

  31. GrizzlChin October 9, 2010

    I have to agree with RoyalKev. There is something incredibly annoying about her. Not only that, but I have seen a few of her performances on TV and she barely sings loud enough to register. I don’t find her James Brown rip-off routine either brilliant or flattering, I think it’s just riding the coat-tails of real talent to get noticed. There is definitely not enough originality in entertainment today and she is a second-class talent-show participant.

    And those of you who are going to rip on me for making my own personal observation, this is the business she chose. You are not guaranteed success in anything and everyone is entitled to an opinion. Just because I don’t agree with you, doesn’t make you right and me wrong or vice versa.
