Janelle Monae Tips The Tightrope On ‘Ellen’

Greyson Chance wasn’t the only singing sensation to fire things up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today—music mogul Diddy appeared to help introduce soul-infused mechanical diva Janelle Monae, who’s signed to his Bad Boy label. Monae has been doing the TV show rounds over the past week to promote her new album The ArchAndroid. (Catch her particularly rousing performance on Letterman.) Head below to watch Janelle combine her killer vocals with some fancy footwork while performing “Tightrope” on Ellen.

    This girl is beyond Dope. She lets it ALL out on the stage every time I see her. That’s just talent and professionalism right there. Kudos to another great performance. She can SANG.

    Just watched her a couple hours ago. All I’m saying is, this girl better blow up and get huge like Lady Gaga, cause she deserves it just as much if not more than Gaga!

  • AMR

    YES!!!! I agree with everyone, esp. Aeolian! She has just as much star power as anyone in the business! JM is so underrated! Great performance, as usual! :-)

    Oh gosh, I hope she makes it big.

    She has style, class, intelligence in her songs and all the moves, without having to get naked half the time! <3
