One Night Only Lyrics
Someone requested the "One Night Only" (disco version) lyrics. It may have a couple of mistakes. Let me know in the comments box if it does. Here you go:
One night only (ohh)
One night only (C’mon, C’mon)
One Night only (C’mon, C’mon)

Its All Coming Together
|Just a quick blurb about where the film is at in the whole process via Hollywood Elswhere:|
Director Bill Condon locked the final edit of Dreamgirls last week and is now working on the sound mixing. The final critic-ready print won't be ready until 11.10 at the earliest, so there won't be any earlybird screenings before then. The first showing will probably happen on or about 11.14 or 11.15...just a guess. The Dreamamount release opens in N.Y. and L.A. on 12.15, and goes wide on 12.25.

Jennifer Holliday on SNL (1982)
|I found this clip of Jennifer Holliday singing "One Night Only" on SNL in 1982. It was her birthday a few days ago and I forgot to post so this is my Happy Belated Birthday shout out to Ms. Holliday. I love how they switched up the disco part of the song.|
DREAMGIRLS Tonner Dolls are Here!
|The Tonner Doll Company has a DREAMGIRLS Collection. Here's the description from their website:|
"Robert Tonner presents Dreamgirls, inspired by the soon-to-be released Dreamworks/Paramount film based on the hit Broadway Musical - in theaters this December. Dreamgirls follows the life of a pop trio of the late 1950s and early 1960s, and their rise to fame.
Deena and Lorrell are 16" tall and both use the Tyler Wentworth® bending wrist articulated body (with arched, high-heel fashion doll feet); Deena uses the 'Angelina' head sculpt and Lorrell uses the 'Jac' head sculpt. Effie uses the EMME® plus-sized body sculpt and Chicago' Mama Morton head sculpt. Please note that the head sculpts are not intended to be likenesses of the film's performers.
Dreamgirls feature a new, never-before-used skin tone that is a medium caramel color in between the traditional 'Esmé' and 'Jac' skin tones.
Dolls are available with removable wigs and with rooted styles (see descriptions) for the Dreamgirls' evolving looks. Please read the descriptions carefully to understand how the doll is designed and how it is to be produced."

Diana's 'Dreamgirls' decision
|You can watch the trailer right now on mtv.com and it's also premiering in a few minutes. Look a few posts down for channel listings. The trailer is above and beyond what I expected. I love it!|
First Single Information
|I found this article on billboard.com about the release information for the first single off of the soundtrack which is 'Listen.'|
"A new Beyonce song, "Listen," leads the soundtrack to the film "Dreamgirls," due Dec. 5 via Music World/Sony Urban, 16 days before the film opens in wide U.S. theatrical release. The cut, which Beyonce co-wrote, is due to arrive this week at U.S. radio outlets; its video will premiere the week of Nov. 13.
Although the full track list has yet to be announced, another song from the album, "One Night Only" has been making the rounds as a dance mix. "Dreamgirls" will also be available in a two-disc edition with extra music from the movie."Dreamgirls" is loosely based on the rise and fall of the Supremes and stars Beyonce as a member of an up-and-coming vocal trio. Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy and Danny Glover also appear.
Beyonce will perform Nov. 21 at the American Music Awards, although it is unknown if she will play a track from her new album, "B-Day," or a song from "Dreamgirls." The cast of the film is expected to visit MTV's "TRL" in early December."
New Article on MTV.com
|There's a new article on DREAMGIRLS on mtv.com in the news section. Here's a little excerpt:|
"If there's one film this season that has been pulling out all the stops in pursuit of Oscar glory, it's "Dreamgirls...According to Hollywood Reporter writer Borys Kit, there's a recipe for Oscar success that "Dreamgirls" has followed to a tee...But the best way to ensure lots of nominations is to generate word of mouth — and that starts with a carefully orchestrated publicity campaign. The Oscar campaign for "Dreamgirls" was under way well before the movie was finished: Looking to create advanced buzz for the flick, DreamWorks invited members of the press to visit the set last winter."
To read the article in full click here, if it doesn't wrk just go to mtv.com and look in the news section. The title of the article is "Beyonce's New Flick Could See Its Oscar 'Dream' Come True."

|Update: Here are better quality versions of the character banners.|
The trailer premieres tonight and I'm very excited. I already have my tivo set. To celebrate I decided to post a few pictures you probably have not seen yet. In addition to the one sheet, there will be character banners as well as 3-d boards in theatres. Thanks ronflyzhigh for the pictures of the character banners. I took the picture of the 3-d board at the Paramount offices when I was in L.A. Also, peep the new banner to the site. You know we have to keep it fly and up to date. Thanks whasian_boy for making that for me.

Entertainment Tonight DREAMGIRLS Exclusive
|If you missed the sneak peeks of the trailer over the past two days on ET then here it is. I just want to add that this video doesn't even do the cinematography of this movie any justice. I wish it was in HQ but we'll have the HQ trailer soon and you can see for yourself. Until then just watch this.|
HQ One Sheet
|Since the one sheet is all over I think it's time I post it as well. Here's what you will see in theatres, billboards etc. The final movie poster. It's red hot. You can click in the picture slide for a bigger version.|
Also, one of our fellow Dreamgirls Fans went to the 'Best Little Whorehouse in Texas' Benefit concert last night that Jennifer Hudson was in. Here's an autographed program that Jennifer signed. Make sure you keep that, it's going to be valuable in a few months. :)
"I attended the “One Night Only” concert in NYC tonight featuring Jennifer Hudson. She sounded and looked great in the role of Jewel. After the show, she came out of the stage door to sign autographs. I was able to meet her briefly afterwards and she autographed my program. She said “See Dreamgirls” I said “Oscar.”

Rolling Stone's 20th Annual Hot List
|Jennifer Hudson has been named Hot Rising Star in the 20th Annual Hot list for Rolling Stone.|
"I'd rather be a Dreamgirl than an American Idol any day." says Jennifer Hudson. The former Idol contestant beat the odds not just by winning a lead part in the hotly anticipated film adaptation of DREAMGIRLS, the hit Broadway musical, but also by turning in one of the movie's top performances- no small feat in an A-list cast that inlcludes Beyonce, Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy. Ironically, when it came to the crucial role of Effie, the Dreamgirl gets elbowed out of the spotlight, the two final contenders were both veterans of the 2004 edition of American Idol.

Release Date Information
| The release date is now December 15th in N.Y. and L.A. with a nationwide release on December 25th.|
