Posted on

Naacp_beyonce_dl

Naacp_beyonce_dlA radiant Jennifer Hudson took home three trophies at last night’s 40th NAACP Image Awards, winning top honors for her album, as a “new artist,” and in the duo, group or collaboration category. Fellow dreamgirl Beyonce won as best female artist, and Taraji P. Henson picked up an award for her Oscar-nominated role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Hosts Halle Berry and Tyler Perry — whose House of Payne won for best comedy, best actor in a comedy (LaVan Davis), best supporting actor in a comedy (Lance Gross), and best supporting actress in a comedy (Keshia Knight Pulliam) — kept the ceremony rolling, but the highlights were definitely the musical numbers. Beyoncé (pictured) opened the show with “Halo,” and Hudson’s stunning “Impossible Dream” had my jaw on the ground. This just in: She’s a really good singer.
