janelle monae 1 e1278527332733 Video: Janelle Monae Performs On So You Think You Can Dance

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!!!

    @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!!!!

    ^^^ 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.

    @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!

    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.

    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.

    ^^^ 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.

    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.
