Apples and Oranges. No. Make that Kangaroos.

Jennifer Holliday singing "And I'm Telling You" from the Tony Award winning play Dreamgirls:

Perhaps one of the greatest live performances of our generation.

Jennifer Hudson singing "And I'm Telling You" from the Oscar nominated film Dreamgirls:

Post inspired by the recent discussions on Design Observer.

I am not an American Idol junkie like most of America, but I happened to watch it last night and one of the last girls to perform did this song and was freaking amazing...made me wish I could carry a tune.

oh, and there is ABSOLUTELY no comparsion between Jennifer Holliday and Jennifer Hudson....more like comparing apples and kangaroos.
