This is the second time I’ve seen Janelle Monae live, and she’s every bit as great as the first time. She’s got a soulful voice that can raise the roof, she’s got great dance moves and last night at Terminal 5 in New York, she even made a painting while singing! Of course, you’ll recall that Janelle was discovered by Outkast and now she’s signed to Bad Boy records (P. Doody’s label). Like the last time I saw her live, she performed “Smile,” dedicated it to Michael Jackson and then moonwalked across the stage so perfectly that Michael is surely smiling wherever he is.
