As can be seen on the videos for hits like "Tightrope", her personal and unique reading of funk, pop and R&B, as laid down on the LP "The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III)", takes on a life of its own when performed live. Janelle Monáe was born to be on stage: she left her Kansas hometown to move to Broadway but fortunately ended up in the music business because she wanted to reach more people. A regular at the Grammys since her first EP, Janelle Monáe shines like the biggest star there is wherever she goes, and turns everything she touches into magic. Outkast passed on the tip to Sean “Diddy” Combs, who signed her up after visiting her Myspace. That's how irresistible she is.
