It feels like it was just yesterday we were gushing about Janelle Monáe's amazingly quirky single, “Q.U.E.E.N." (I mean, it was only two months ago—dang, girl!) But now, here we are yet again obsessed with another one of her just-released videos, "Dance Apocalyptic."
In a departure from her signature look, Monáe literally lets down her hair in this bizarre "American Bandstand" meets the end-of-the-world video. It's totally insane—and I love it. The choreography's as catchy as the lyrics, and I wouldn't be surprised to see people busting out the moves at a party.
Take a look:

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)
All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
