Jennifer Hudson tackles James Corden’s Dreamgirls shade in the most perfect way


We all know that Jennifer Hudson can sing, but it turns out she’s also about to spit some rather impressive lyrics, too!

The Voice UK and Dreamgirls star joined James Corden on his Late Late Show in London as the pair battled it out in an epic Drop The Mic session – added sass served up! 

It didn’t take long before the pair were clashing over some of the great work they’ve done. James making a dig at Jennifer over her being a tourist in London before promptly reminding her she didn’t win American Idol.

And then, perfectly timed, he dropped the mic with a classic Dreamgirls reference.

“You won an Oscar for Dreamgirls I get it. No one remembers you in that film because Beyonce’s in it,” he said.

Of course, Jennifer wasn’t going to take that lying down. It prompted a few stumbles of laughter from the American Idol star before she replied with a joke about…. James’ penis.

“Your success in America brought us down to our knees. Singing, ‘London, ya’ll take this fool back please.’

“Now no more fat jokes, ’cause it’s below the belt. I mean it though but you can’t see it though, just like your penis.”


There’s also a Sex and The City joke, a Kelly Clarkson jibe, and Jennifer ends up singing the ending to And I Am Telling You (I’m Not Going) from Dreamgirls right in James’ face.
