Janelle Monae on Sesame Street
Sesame Street might not be as shmancy as, say, the Meatpacking District circa "Sex and the City," but it has its fair share of hip visitors.

The latest "Sesame Street" music video features the wondrous Janelle Monáe, and it's just what you need on a Friday afternoon. Bert's bumming, Cookie Monster is burning his snacks, Big Bird can't dunk a basketball, and the Two-Headed Monster can't seem to find the beat. It's easy to be discouraged, but just as they're all about to toss in the towel, Monáe appears in a stylin' tuxedo to teach them about "The Power of Yet." It's catchy, groovy, and completely adorable - and the perfect song to go with the 45th anniversary of the long-running show!

Monáe isn't the first musician to visit Sesame Street, and she surely won't be the last. Check out some of the other stand-out appearances from years past, like Feist, Johnny Cash, R.E.M., Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Cab Calloway!

Upcoming musical guests include Macklemore, Ed Sheeran, and One Direction. Yow.
