In "Dreamgirls," Jennifer Hudson is deservedly garnering the lion's share of praise —but Beyoncé delivers the performance of her career in "Listen," another defining moment in the brilliant flick. In this devastatingly beautiful ballad, she shimmers with evocative emotion, rising to new heights alongside a golden melody with spellbinding, rafter-raising production. As Beyoncé sits atop The Billboard Hot 100 and R&B/hip-hop charts with "Irreplaceable," a mediocre composition with all the distracting bells and whistles of the modern urban template, at last we see that she is a real talent when free of the accompaniment that has long masked her voice. Hopefully, as adult R&B embraces this hit, Beyoncé will continue to rise to the occasion. —Chuck Taylor
