With the Academy Award weekend in full effect, E! has invited a handful musicians to perform their own modern take on this year's red carpet theme song, Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible.” Below you can listen to the contribution of the always prolific Janelle Monáe. As usual, the songstress delivers her signature style of high wrapped into slick guitar-heavy rendition, which is likely to enhance the overall red carpet experience. Other acts, that are featured on the celebrity television network's Live from the Red Carpet 2014 soundtrack include Swedish rock band The Royal Concept, indie pop group Fitz and The Tantrums as well British goth-pop star Charli XCX.
