Just in time for Valentine's Day, here's video of last night's Grammy performance by Janelle Monae.
While the crowd-surfing — possibly a Grammy first — may have been a bit contrived, Monae still killed it with her rendition of "Cold War," which easily ranked first in my 2010 Top Ten.
The song also offers a timely sentiment for the popular uprisings that are taking place in Egypt, Iran, Bahrain and Yemen.
You can read what the soul-pop diva has to say about the song in our Indy interview from last June. Then have a look at the Grammy number, followed by a nice interview on behalf of hair products.
