It looks like everyone's favorite tight rope walker, Janelle Monae, will be dancing and singing through the beloved sets of Sesame Street. We love this former BUST cover girl, and we're kinda losing our minds with excitement!

In this great behind the scenes clip, we see Monae singing "The Power of Yet," a song that teaches kids and adults alike the importance of perseverance, with cast favorites like Big Bird, Ernie and Cookie Monster.  There is even a dance number with kids (and puppets) donning the singer's signature tuxedo look. Can you say adorable?  

It's crazy to think that we have to wait until Sesame Street premieres for their 45th season this September to actually WATCH the episode and subsequent tuxedo dance scene. Until then, check out this awesome clip from Billboard where the "Electric Lady" discusses her contribution to the classic children's show.


Thanks Billboard
