USMagazine, Sunday, February 24, 2013, 7:50pm (PST)

We get it, Jennifer Hudson: You're not going. During a tribute to the movie musical at the 85th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood on Sunday, Feb. 24, the actress and singer, 31, revisited the moment from 2006's Dreamgirls that helped cement her Best Supporting Actress win. Crooning "And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going" from the movie (and the Broadway musical upon which the film is based), the former American Idol contestant belted out the heartbreaking torch song.

Clad in a Kaufmanfranco crystal-encrusted linear radiating column gown, the slim mom and Weight Watchers spokeswoman brought the house down -- inspiring a standing ovation from the A-list crowd before the number segued to the Les Miserables' cast's performance.

Hudson has a habit of bringing down the house at awards shows: At the 2012 Grammys, she sang an abbreviated version of "I Will Always Love You" in tribute to Whitney Houston, one day after the singer's death. Watch Hudson's jaw-dropping finish at the Oscars now.
