For those who don't know, Glee's Amber Riley is over in London performing as Effie in Dreamgirls on the West End. The production is rumored to be heading to Broadway. Until then, check out this video of her knocking it right on out of the damn park performing the beloved song "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" at this year's Olivier Awards (the West End's Tony Awards®).
Ask any musical theater fan and they'll tell you: you should not f*ck with this song unless you know what you're doing. Everyone: chill, though. A calm, cool, and collected Amber Riley walks out on to that stage and puts her own spin on this epic number and, quite simply, nails it. We dare you not to weep as she turns that sophisticated English audience into screaming lunatics halfway through. They are on their feet before she can get out that final whopper of a note! It is no wonder she won the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical later that evening.
SLAY, Amber. SLAYYYYYY! And let's get this production to Broadway ASAP, please!
