Dreamgirl 4 life Jennifer Hudson killed a set with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon last night, performing her new tune’ No One Gonna Love You” and sounding like she is gearing up to do to Beyonce in real life what B’s character did to her in the musical. Let’s be honest, you’re probably going to fast-forward through the interview to get to the performance (which comes in at about 7:55) but easy with the click-finger, cause the interview is mostly performance also, as JH takes the audience to church (ok cemetery) with a recreation of her days as a funeral singer. Note to future interviewers: do NOT ask Jennifer Hudson to sing just one line of a spiritual unless you have some time to kill. Watch here.

    @troubleman81, “the things the roots do for other artists.” Right!!! I have watched her perform this song two other times and this is HANDS DOWN her best performance and it’s because of The Roots.
