Amber Riley stunned the crowd at last night's Olivier Awards when she performed a song from the hit musical 'Dreamgirls'.
We all know Amber Riley from her role as Mercedes in the beloved musical TV show Glee – oh how we miss it!
But you may not know that she has been in the UK recently and starring on London's West End in the musical Dreamgirls.
She plays the role of Effie White, the role made famous by Jennifer Hudson in the Hollywood movie version of the show which also starred Beyoncé.
The show is currently on at the Savoy Theatre in London and she's earned rave reviews so far for her performances in the musical, which last night earned her the award of Best Actress at the prestigious Olivier Awards.
And as part of the awards ceremony which took place at London's Royal Albert Hall, she performed 'And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going', her signature track from the show (which we all LOVE)
And it's safe to say she was incredible...
Ticket website Ticketmaster were at the event and captured her performance for their Twitter feed and thank goodness they did!
It looks like a truly unmissable performance and we are totally jealous of anyone who was there watching.
Amber's Glee co-stars were also super proud of their pal and tweeted their congratulations when the news hit the USA.
