Ellen Degeneres invited two R&B powerhouses to her show this week. On Tuesday (Apr. 25), Mary J. Blige hit the daytime talk show stage for a commanding performance of her single “Thick Of It,” in promotion of her upcoming album Strength of a Woman.
Wearing a black bodysuit and accompanied by a live band and background singers, Blige belted out the emotional record inspired by her divorce from Kendu Issacs.
On Wednesday (Apr. 26), Ellen welcomes Grammy & Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson back to the show for her first time in 5 years. Also wearing all black, the songstress delivered her first American TV performance of her comeback single “Remember Me.”
If anyone had forgotten, J-Hud showed off her incredible grace, power, and control with an outstanding display of her vocals.
