In terms of outright entertainment, few ensembles swagger like these cats, who have been going at it in some form or another since the mid-'90s - a.k.a. way before throwback soul was en vogue. (More like when En Vogue was en vogue.)

Like the last guy who held that title, she conjures up a terrifying bluster on the brink of frustration and elation, a spectacle everybody should experience at least once.
