Jennifer Hudson Does “Dreamgirls” Tribute At Oscars

Six years after receiving an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, Jennifer Hudson returned to the same stage to perform “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from “Dreamgirls” during a tribute to the musical at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.

It was the same song she performed at the 2007 show when she took home the award for her role as Effie White.

Following her very powerful performance, which earned her a standing ovation, J-Hud tweeted, “Oh what a night!!”

Stars including Rick Ross and Rihanna also tweeted their approval of her performance.
