Janelle Monáe brought out the electric lady on the TODAY show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.

The Kansas City native opened up to the hosts in an brief intimate interview in which she discussed her beginnings in music and the diversity of her latest album, The Electric Lady. The hosts even inquired about the “Tightrope” dance, which she began to teach until commercial break. I’m sure the ladies got the moves down since they learned from the master.

She finishes off her guest appearance with a performance of her single, “Dance Apocalyptic.” Watch the interview and performance in the videos, below.
