Janelle Monae x Erykah Badu close 2013 BET Awards [Video]

Janelle Monae was joined on stage by the Queen of Neo-Soul, Erykah Badu, at last night’s BET Awards in LA to close the ceremony with an energetic performance of her song “Q.U.E.E.N”.

Keeping with her trademark black and white striped theme, Monae delivered a typically energetic performance, frantically dancing on the platform until she welcomed on Badu to join her and fiercly perform her verse. Luckily there were no Miguel-style head crushes, only a stray poodle that Badu released onto the stage at the end of the performance.

Monae’s new album The Electric Lady is set for release on 10th September. Check out the duo’s performance below:
