Janelle Monáe - Marquee Theatre - 1/11/14 (PHOTOS)

It's really a shame Janelle Monáe was ordered by doctors to postpone her November performance at the Crescent Ballroom late last year for "mandatory vocal rest."

If her performance would have been anything like the Saturday, January 11, concert at Marquee Theatre, it most certainly would have been on our list of the best shows of 2013. The R&B starlet and her band sure brought the goods.
