J.Cole Performs ‘Crooked Smile’ With Help From Jennifer Hudson

It’s not Thursday, but we’ll treat you to a little throwback footage anyway. Last month J. Cole hit the stage for VH1′s annual 2013 Do Something! Awards to perform his hit single “Crooked Smile,” featuring TLC, but the Roc Nation rapper switched things up a little and brought an unexpected guest performer with him to the stage. Jennifer Hudson surprised the crowd, performing the hook on the song, which actually samples her own single “No One’s Gonna Love You.” Enjoy above.
