Jennifer Hudson Gets Upstaged By 12-Year-Old Savannah Robinson

Yes, you read that headline right. I dare anyone to say differently after watching this video of Jennifer Hudson joining Savannah Robinson on the stage of Ellen Degeneres' talk show yesterday. Robinson is the latest signee to Ellen's fledgling record label, and this 12-year-old child is, in a word although there are many to describe her, phenomenal. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started watching this clip, but as soon as this young girl opened her mouth to sing "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from the film version of Dreamgirls, my face looked like this :O. Discovered on YouTube -- isn't everyone these days? -- Savannah's full-bodied, raspy voice belies her slight, schoolgirl appearance. There was one flat note toward the beginning, but otherwise she sang the hell outta this joint. So much so that when Jennifer joined her on stage later to take over, I wanted less of JHud and more of Savannah. Watch for yourself and prepare to be amazed.
