Janelle Monáe got the party started on The Voice on Tuesday night with a sexy performance of “Make Me Feel” from her new album, Dirty Computer. She was definitely giving people Prince vibes. Monáe, who recently came out as pansexual, was not afraid to show off her sexuality as she thrusted her way around the stage.
Not everyone was a fan, though. Some people took to Twitter to express their anger over the overt nature of the performance:
@NBCTheVoice Isn’t this supposed to be a family show? That performance by Janelle Monae was anything but. Can’t we have a performance without thrusting sex in our faces. Can’t we at least try? Younger kids watch this show for goodness sakes. Disappointing for sure. Do better!

How is that appropriate in an 8pm time slot? Kids love this show. Come on! Not cool @NBCTheVoice

Whether you liked it or were offended by it, one thing’s for sure, Monáe definitely made everyone feel something.
