Jennifer Hudson Gives Flawless Performance of ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’ at 2013 Oscars

In 2006, Jennifer Hudson won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Dreamgirls.’ Seven years later, the actress-singer returns to the 2013 Oscars stage to perform the soaring ballad, ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.’

As part of the Oscar tribute to movie musicals, J-Hud was tapped to perform the ‘Dreamgirls’ ballad, which was originally performed by Jennifer Holiday in the 1981 Broadway musical of the same name. And let us just say that Hudson gave an unforgettable performance that would have made Holiday very proud.

Dressed in a shimmering charcoal gown, Hudson took viewers and the audience to church at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre as she wailed those defiant words, “I’m staying and you and you and you … you’re gonna love me.”

No offense to the other actors singing in their musical numbers for ‘Chicago’ and ‘Les Misérables’, but you guys couldn’t hold a candle next to Hudson’s breathtaking performance.

Jennifer Hudson’s rendition of ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’ left chills up and down our spines. Bravo!
