Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J Blige delivered a regal performance at tonight’s Academy Awards.

Taking the stage at the ceremony’s 90th annual edition, the songstress – also nominated for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for her role in the critically acclaimed ‘Mudbound’ – performed the Academy Award-nominated ‘Mighty River’ from the film’s soundtrack.

And, while she may have lost out on the ‘Actress’ award, she definitely was a winner with this performance.  Look inside to see her deliver one of the night’s most talked about moments:

    Great performance. It’s a good thing that I waited my time watching because she didn’t win best supporting actress

    She’s just let all black folks down with those vocals. Mary, you knew you wasnt prepared. Trash from beginning to end?

    She cannot sing. I never thought she could sing. When I hear black gay men talk about the divas at the upscale gay club I used to frequently when I had money they never mentioned her. I guess Mary J used to be the ghetto diva fir the hood rat black gays and lonely fat hood rat black women. I personally prefer the sissy bop the few moments Im in the mood to listen to black people music. I just love music by Barbara Mason (Another Man), Millis Jackson (If Loving You is wrong), Jasmine Sullivan (Let it Burn), Big Cynthia (Lick it Before You Stick It), and Ms. Jody (Let Me Ride). Songs like that really get me in the mood to ride big mandinngo stick all night long.

    She really struggled with this. I wish Raphael had written it with someone else with the vocals to really make the song resonate.
