Watch: J. Cole And Jennifer Hudson Perform ‘Crooked Smile’ At 2013 Do Something! Awards

VH1’s Do Something! Awards honoree Jennifer Hudson surprised an unsuspecting crowd when she joined VIBE cover star J. Cole on stage to sing the chorus of “Crooked Smile.” The TLC-assisted track got a soulful makeover as J-Hud belted out the empowering hook. The annual award show aired July 31 and honored Hudson for her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation – a foundation she co-founded with sister Julia Hudson in honor of Jennifer’s late nephew. Other honorees included LL Cool J, Patrick Dempsey, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kelly Osbourne. Press play below for Cole and Jennifer’s live rendition of “Crooked Smile.” –Alley Olivier
