When Jennifer Hudson hit the stage to perform best original song nominee “I’ll Fight,” the title track from the Ruth Bader Ginsburg documentary titled RBG, many were excited to hear the Oscar-winner sing. Unfortunately, her rendition of the track was soon slammed for being “flat” and “off-key” with one viewer tweeting: “I’m sending Jennifer Hudson a bill for breaking all the windows in my house with that performance.” Another added: “Jennifer Hudson sis!!! They key sis! The key!!!” Ouch!
It wasn’t all bad, though. Luckily, Hudson hit a home run on the red carpet, as she showed off some serious sass. Picking a dress straight off the runway, the 37-year-old rocked a bold and beautiful creation from Elie Saab’s SS19 Couture, which E! noted made her look “like the dancer emoji — in the best way, of course.” Of course. While plenty of celebs were opting for pink gowns this year, the songstress went against the grain and opted for bright red paired with an unexpected cut. The unique shape featured an asymmetrical design with one sleeve, a thigh-high slit, plenty of ruffles, and a curve-hugging silhouette. Way to hit it out of the park, JHUD!
