Retro Rewind: Dreamgirls Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson & Anika Noni Rose Rock 2007 Oscars

The big screen revival of stage-play ‘Dreamgirls’ took the movie and music arena’s by wig-snatching storm in 2006.

A potent potion of power anthems and stellar acting, the film earned the honor of being both a critical and commercial success;. Success rewarded amply during the 2007 award season – with the movie winning Best Motion Picture Musical at the Golden Globes and Jennifer Hudson historically bagging Best Supporting Actress at the 80th Annual Academy Awards a month later.

The night of the latter saw Hudson, along with fellow “Dreamettes” Beyonce and Anika Noni Rose serve up a three-song extravaganza which, much like the movie, is a classic.

Here’s hoping the similarly-themed ‘Sparkle’ (starring Whitney Houston) delivers such goods when it arrives in theatres this August.

    Beyonce is murdered Jenn. It’s funny how people claimed Jennifer to be the stronger singer when we know Beyonce held back for the role. But live it was pretty clear Beyonce was not only the stronger vocalist but the more controlled. You gotta admire her hard work. It shows and it leaves her stepS above the rest!!!

    And of course, what would any article about Beyonce be without at least one person pinning her against someone else. It’s really not that hard to say that they both did a good job and that we need more singers today who can sing like either of them. But hey, I guess I foolishly forgot that when it comes to singing and rapping we can have a plethora of top notch guys claim the throne, but when it comes to the ladies, there must only be one. How silly of me.
