    Quick Shout Out!

    I have to take a quick minute and shout out all my DREAMGIRLS brothers and sisters that have contributed so much to this site. People have been sending me all kinds of pictures, articles, information and capping videos for DREAMGIRLS fans that I had to say a quick thanks. I definitely could not gather all this information alone. So thanks to: CurtisTaylorJr. you are the video capper of all video cappers, Whasian Boy you made a killer banner for me, got the site looking fresh to def, Maximus Prime your're fine thats the only reason why I included you. J/K. LOL. Maximus you know why you are included. Thanks to all my imdb.com DREAMGIRLS family you were all among the first to support the site. Thanks to Jensback4ever you have the best throwback DREAMGIRLS OBC videos, the-ladies.com late night downloading would not be the same without your videos, J.M., Accuracy 1 for answering our nagging questions, and many many more. I honestly have to say so far this experience has been fun. Gathering all this info and reading the exciting e-mails and comments from fans around the country and the world is amazing. Seeing the movie finally coming to light is quite a thrill. It's only the beginning. See you at the next update.

    P.S. What do you all think of the new banner?

    Hudson in Entertainment Weekly

    Jennifer is featured in Entertainment Weekly. Here's a picture of her feature and what it says:
    Jennifer Hudson: Must Dreamgirl
    Age: 24
    Why her: So what if she got voted off American Idol's third season prematurely? A born belter with Whitney-esque power-ballad chops, the Chicago native beat out more than 700 competitors (including season 3 Idol winner Fantasia Barrino) for the role of divalicious Effie in the big-screen adaptation of the 1981 musical Dreamgirls, opposite Jamie Foxx and Beyoncé Knowles
    Best diva-role perk: "I got paid to be trouble."
    Surreal singing gig: Six months on a Disney cruise ship as a Hercules muse
    Don't call us...: Hudson, on her failed audition for the role of Joanne in the movie version of Rent: "They put me right out of the room. It just wasn't for me."
    Red-carpet regimen: "I'm working out trying to get all fit (for the premiere) so they'll go, 'That ain't Effie. Who is that?'"
    Next: Dreamgirls opens Dec. 22; Hudson's also working on a debut album with plenty of "old-school R&B, my preferred style."

    It's About To Go Down!

    UPDATE: Download the commercial HERE. Someone has a High Quality full version of the commercial and should be posting it today. So once I get it I will reupload the better version but you can all just enjoy this one for right now.

    UPDATE: FULL CLIP provided by curtistaylorjr. Thanks and enjoy!

    Update: I have the commercial now available for viewing. It is missing the first 12 seconds so I am working on getting the full one. But enjoy this for now.

    Update: The commercial aired already and it was amazing. I will have video soon. (wink wink Curtis) So check back, it might be kind of late though. For now here is a clip of Beyonce's opening performance.

    Alright my DREMAGIRLS brother and sisters, the day has arrived. We finally get to see the next installment of DREAMGIRLS commercials. The 60 second spot will air sometime tonight between 8-11pm ET during the BET Awards. I will be udpdating this post (updates in red) through out the night with pictures (many of the principal cast will be there), video and audio. So check back later on, or periodically through out the night. Anyone who is planning on capping the commercial could you e-mail me and let me know if you can help with providing download links. I just want to make sure I have a back up plan because there a lot of people who live outside of the U.S. who visit the site and want to watch the commercial just like us. So be kind and share. :) Ok, I will post once I get more info.

    I just wanted to post a few recent pics of Jennifer Hudson. My girl is looking fierce and I had to show everyone.

    DREAMGIRLS in Indianapolis

    Hey people, its about that time again. I've gotten some e-mails about different DREAMGIRLS shows around the country. Since some of them have not confirmed their details yet I will only post info about the Indianapolis show and then update later. A few people have e-mailed me about the Indianapolis show and this one is kind of special. It's special for a couple reasons but mainly because there is another American Idol in the cast. Trenyce from season two of American Idol is playing Deena Jones; she is joined by Joyce Licorish (Effie), and Lyn MacDonald (Lorell) who's played as Deena in the Broadway performance of DREAMGIRLS. The show is being directed by Bob Harbin and chreographed by Ken Shepard. It's been running for a week and is receiving rave reviews. DREAMGIRLS in Indianapolis will run from June 22nd to July 14th at Walker Theatre, tickets can be brought at ticketmaster.com. To find out more about the show, ticket price, and performers click here. Also, try and check out Joyce Licorish's website, she is an amazing singer and she is already getting great reviews for her portrayal of Effie White.

    Stay tuned for more updates about upcoming DREAMGRIRLS shows in your area.

    If anyone has info about other DREAMGIRLS shows please feel free to e-mail me with details and I will post it on the site. Thanks!

    Meet The Dreams

    New image just surfaced. and as you can see its similiar to a another Supremes cover. To see a larger and clearer version of Meet The Dreams cover, just click on the picture in the slide show.

    Update: I was sent another Supremes cover which actually resmebles the new DREAMGIRLS album cover more. I think that both Supremes album covers were used as a basis for the new cover. It's kind of like they merged the two album covers. Thanks for the picture Carlos!

    BET Awards and DREAMGIRLS

    Hey people, sorry about the lack of updates in a few days but I have some news I'm sure you will all love. Well, it looks like it's that time again. There will be DREAMGIRLS promo at the 6th annual BET AWARDS. Now I know not everyone watches BET but it stands for "Black Entertainment Television" and every year around June (since 2000) BET has had an award show that honors African-Americans (an other people of color) in the music, movie and sports field. This year the awards will not only have Beyonce (who plays Deena) open the show with her new single DeJa Vu but there will be some kind of DREAMGIRLS promo. I am not sure if it will be similiar to the Tony Awards but as I know more you will. The awards are airing on June 27th (Tuesday) at 8 PM/ET. There will be a live stream of the red carpet as well as a pre-show which can be viewed online as well as on your television screens. So set your TIVO's once again. Oh, and it wil be something new so don't expect the same footage. As always I will have the video available for viewing and download once I can get my hands on it. You can go check out the BET Awards site for more information about performers and presenters. Till Tuesday!
