The Kansas-born singer delivers energetic performances of 'Dance Apocalyptic' and 'Electric Lady', which are both lifted from her newest album.
Janelle Monae graced the stage of "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, October 26. The 27-year-old singer visited the show to promote "The Electric Lady", her second studio album which was released back in September.
Monae, who made her debut appearance on the NBC show, treated fans with two tracks off her newest record. Donning all white with black suspenders, the Kansas-born artist kicked off her set with "Dance Apocalyptic".
She then returned to the stage to perform her new album's title track. Wearing a varsity jacket and a pair of black boots, Monae sang the tune while dancing energetically on the stage. She delivered a stunning performance even though she wasn't joined by Solange Knowles, who is featured in the studio version of the song.
Monae wasn't the only musician to make a guest appearance on that night's "SNL". During host Edward Norton's opening monologue, Miley Cyrus appeared to announce that she'd be going on tour in 2014. "Real quick, I'd just like to announce to all my fans that I'm about to be going on tour," the "Wrecking Ball" singer said.
"SNL" returns next week with Eminem as the musical guest and Kerry Washington as a host.
