Jennifer Hudson And 12-Year-Old Savannah Robinson Have Diva-Off On ‘Ellen’

By: Robbie Daw / March 30, 2011

Last month Ellen DeGeneres plucked 12-year-old vocal powerhouse Savannah Robinson from Internet obscurity when she invited the tween onto her show after seeing a video of Robinson singing. And today Ellen had the soulful kid back on the program to perform Dreamgirls staple “I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” with I Remember Me diva Jennifer Hudson.

Young Savannah’s day got even better when, as Just Jared notes, Ellen announced that she was signing the 12-year-old to her eleveneleven label. Looks like Greyson Chance will finally have some company on the roster.

For now, though, we’re just blown away by how well Savannah held her own while belting this classic out with 29-year-old J-Hud.
