Highlights from Janelle Monae's breakthrough set from the West Holts Stage at the Glastonbury Festival. Monae's acclaimed soul revue show enraptured BBC TV viewers and festival goers alike, as the Kansas City-born soul singer and band performed Tightrope and other songs from her debut album The ArchAndroid. Alongside fellow R&B queen Beyonce's Sunday night performance, this was one of the freshest and best sets at the festival.
