Watch Jennifer Hudson’s ‘Hairspray Live!’ Performance of ‘I Know Where I’ve Been’

Last night (Dec. 7) was NBC’s premiere of Hairspray Live where Jennifer Hudson brought the house down (no surprise)  with her performance of “I Know Where I’ve Been.” As her character D.J. Motormouth Maybelle, Hudson’s performance might just have brought the entire Hairspray production to it’s knees!

Hudson’s delivery along with the song’s lyrical context about racial inequality made for a potent performance, as it resonates with the social climate in the country right now.
