    First Yay But Anyway I’m Over Her She Needs To Learn Singing Techniques Belting And Yelling And Screaming All The Time Is Not Cute

  2. YOUR Queen! May 4, 2011

    YASSSSSS! “y’all better play!” lol i love her for this!

  3. JEREL May 4, 2011

    Now If This Were Fantasia That Would Be Another Story I Think She Is Worth Talking About Musically

    Not once did she yell. She’s actually makes great use of her diaphragm & great breath control. Because she has a robust voice doesn’t mean she is “yelling.” She did excellent on this, & I love her personality.

    SHE DOES WELL WHEN SHE’S IN HER ELEMENT . SHE HAS A VERY GOSPEL VOICE. HALLELUJAH THANK YOU JESUS! I am cracking up at the GIF of Fanny feeling the spirit!!!

    JHud was fabulous – no screaming, just beautiful tone and control of her vocals. She was very relaxed, funny & engaging with Jimmy & I’m glad the interview focused on something other than her weight loss.

    Both JHud & Fanty give me chills because they learned how to sing in the church and always bring a soulful vibe to their performances which is sorely lacking in today’s r&b music.

  10. JohnVidal May 4, 2011

  12. deangelo May 4, 2011

    HER NOTES WAS OFF ALL OVER THE PLACE REAL TALK

  13. yooummaddd May 4, 2011

    deangelo and jerel are probably the same person !! pressed queen I tell ya..

    She wasn’t yelling or screaming, she just has a very powerful voice !!

  14. Xadax May 4, 2011

    She is definitely better than Beyonce. She isn’t afraid to sing to you anyday, anytime. Let Beyonce sing the original key of her (allegedly raised the key by a machine) song Listen? I don’t think so. HA She may Run The World but its hiding A LOT OF THINGS (ugly things – Matthew Knowles!).

  15. test 123 May 4, 2011

    too skinny boblehead

  16. TruthSerum May 4, 2011

    Of course Beyonce sucks! Beyonce had years to get on RS ALL Time best singers list and STILL isn’t there. She’s an auto-tuner pop/rnb ghetto mess.

  17. mobwife May 4, 2011

    Okay, I enjoy her voice I really do but this is too much! I am tired of each and everyone of the media’s “pets”! She has been on EVERY PROGRAM from the US to the UK and it does not seem to have made an once of difference in her sells! Has she gone Gold yet?

    SHE SANG THE HELL OUT OF THAT SONG THOUGH…I CANNOT LIE…DAMN!!

  18. Mely B May 4, 2011

    @ Mobwife – She has been on EVERY PROGRAM from the US to the UK and it does not seem to have made an once of difference in her sells! Has she gone Gold yet?

    She’s doing the same new millenium music biz shuffle as all the rest. Those fortunate enough to get booked everywhere SHOULD so that their music gets exposed to multiple audiences.

    Let me tell you something. I saw the show last night and I broke into a jig. I mean she was simply just talking about the song that people would ask her to sing at funerals and he said let me hear it and she was just relaxed, no yelling, she just brought it home, the audience was going crazy, Jennifer is a true, true talent, those of you who claims that she yells and screams, are so accustomed to this water down talent that is out here that when you hear real, true singers you don’t know how to act. Jennifer’s voice is actually very versatile, she has a song on her album called GONE you would never in a million years know it was her, her voice is beautifu, it can be subtle and it can be a beast and she uses it all on her album. People please learn to start appreciating real music and real singing.

  20. Nikki May 4, 2011

    Um MellB honey, her album went Gold last week in case you missed that, and that is with only one song out so far. Get your infor straight please.

  21. April May 4, 2011

    Nikki, JHUD’s record company has shipped gold, but that CD is 200k short of selling 500,000 copies.

  22. Educated Diva May 4, 2011

    Sang it Jennifer!!!

  23. adrianne May 4, 2011

  24. Deveal2014 May 4, 2011

  25. D Man May 4, 2011

    That Was Beautifully Sung!!!!!!!

  26. adrianne May 4, 2011

    @Deveal2014

    Wherever Trent lands, I will be there. Trent’s wit and honest assessments are what drew me to this blog.

  27. DaBxDon May 4, 2011

    Why everytime someone sings with such power you dumb ass people call it screaming? its called octaves and range. J-Hud,Xtina,and Fantasia cant help that they sing better than Beyonce,Rihanna,Katy P,Ke$ha,Gaga…

  28. Mr. T May 5, 2011

    She did good…

    I have a problem with ppl thinking that because someone’s voice is more powerful, they sing better. SMH….

    And someone said Beyonce uses auto-tune…PLEASE tell when???

  29. Maxtheknife May 5, 2011

    Go Jennifer!

    I loved the vid

    I love her.

    WOW, she is simply amazing!
    WOW!

  30. Ayon Voxx May 5, 2011

    She bores me…….yawn

  31. Lisa May 5, 2011

    @APRIL YOU ARE AN IGNORANT B*TCH THE ALBUM WAS CERTIFIED GOLD LAST WEEK NOT SHIPPED BUT SALES GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT CERTIFIED FOOL.

  32. TruthSerum May 5, 2011

    @LISA

    B**** LISA. GO SUCK SOME C*** FOR REAL. HER SOUNDSCAN NUMBERS ARE WELL BELOW 500K.

  33. Ree May 5, 2011

    Giving props were there due now if you would have said that RIhanna or Jennifer Lopez used auto tune I would agree but not Beyonce lets not turn in to a feud. It’s baD enough Jennifer threw Beyonce under the bus because playboy asked her to pose nude and she said” they need to get Beyonce or Rhianna” she should have just said no..and she needs to cocabutter or sheabutter for those spots on those legs UGH……….im ill just saying

  34. Marcus May 5, 2011

    YES J-HUD! She better work!! Loved it!

  35. Lisa May 5, 2011

    @truthserum, really? it’s that serious that you get this lie across in such a vile manner, how about if you momma go handle that, you nasty hoodrat.

  36. mr shiggity May 5, 2011

    SHE DID THAT EFFORTLESSLY. THATS HOW YOU SANG A SONG RIGHT THERE

    {Answer} Ms. Jennifer Hudson graced the stage on Jimmy Fallon in promotion of her album I Remember Me which has been certified gold. JHud performed “No One Gonna Love You”. Jennifer also sung a small portion of “His Eye Is On The Sparrow” which she received a big applause from the studio audience. Courtesy of RawHollywood.com

    Jennifer better sang… that G.I.F. is hilarious! haha

  39. Susan May 10, 2011

    I dont appreciate Jennifer Hudson mocking His Eye is on the Sparrow. My stepson is the policeman killed in Kalamazoo, and that song was sung beautifully at his funeral. I love to listen to it. I thought she seemed very insensitive.
