Janelle Monae opening up The Oscars was the gift that just kept on giving. Her unapologetic R&B style and crisp play on words had everyone energized. As she started the show off it was only a plus to see Billy Porter pop up in all his glory next to a striking piano singing his soul out. The opener looked to be a bid to Mr. Rogers iconic hymn, and Janelle Monae uniquely made it her own. Her dynamic expressions throughout the entirety of the performance had social media dancing for days.
