Just when we presumptuously thought Michelle Obama's cameo during Sunday's 61st Annual Grammy Awards would be the night's most magical moment, Janelle Monáe's performance reminded all of us why she's one of the most talented artists in music.
The Kansas City native performed her hit single "Make Me Feel" while donning a futuristic latex ensemble. Monáe took to the stage, which was engulfed in purple and pink lights, with guitar in tow. Toward the end, she was surrounded by trumpeters before thanking her fanbase, who she refers to as "dirty computers."
The performance had us "yasss"-ing all throughout, especially when Monáe and her back-up dancers all hit the iconic Michael Jackson move.
@JanelleMonae’s performance was visually stunning. She was serving up some serious Prince vibes AND she did the moonwalk like Michael! Great performance 👏🏾 #Grammys @1043MYfm @Star941FM pic.twitter.com/PpiqjqKrCU— Shelley Wade (@shelleywade) February 11, 2019
Wow!!! We loved EVERYTHING about @JanelleMonae's @Grammy Performance of "Make Me Feel" tonight!!! You channeled Prince, Robert Palmer, Michael Jackson, and made it stronger, sexier, and female. Damn! 💪🏾— Elevate Fate (@elevatefate) February 11, 2019
