To un­der­stand the def­i­ni­tion of a show­stop­per, look no fur­ther than Golden Globe-win­ner Jennifer Hud­son belt­ing out And I Am Telling You in this adap­ta­tion of the mu­si­cal, where the Amer­i­can Idol re­ject steals the show from Bey­oncé Knowles (pic­tured). The rise of ’60s soul trio The Dreamettes is fol­lowed by the fur­ther rise of star Deena (Knowles), whose re­la­tion­ship with their man­ager (Jamie Foxx) gets Effie (Hud­son) kicked out of the group early in their ca­reer. Echo­ing the story of The Supremes, this film ex­plores the AfricanAmer­i­can mu­sic in­dus­try to re­veal the grim side of show­busi­ness.
