Big night, even BIGGER opinions!
What did Chris Brown's ex Karrueche Tran think about the clip?!
To find out, ch-ch-check out this EXCLUSIVE video (above)!
So is this one bigger and better?
Well, it's certainly bigger, as it was split up into multiple performances throughout the night. And it all started (above) with the Legendary Roots Crew, along with Erykah Badu and Bilal.
Erykah was subdued and surprisingly forgettable doing The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker… Bilal, on the other hand, really brought the spirit of the Purple One to the stage with his performance of The Beautiful Ones.
Next up, Tori Kelly joined Stevie Wonder — who interestingly enough was also in Her Madgesty's BBMAs tribute — for a performance of Take Me With U.
It was just OK… but then Jennifer Hudson took the stage and showed everyone how paying tribute is DONE.
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing performers honoring the late artist starting with the Roots with Erykah and Bilal (below)!
The CFDA Awards was poppin' last night!
While their looks couldn't have been more different, they each clearly attempted to pull out all the stops… for better or for worse.
We usually love Jess' red carpet glam, but just not this busy printed dress with the caged sandals. It was way too much — and we could say the exact same for J. Hud!
At least Ashley got it right with her simple black Michael Kors Collection gown, strappy sandals, and sleek locks.
Her effortless look really won us over, but what do U think???

However, the 34-year-old responded to straight-up say that the only reason she was cast in the first place was because of her celeb status!
Ch-ch-check out her post (below)!
Look at these tech angels!
The young Miz Depp was in Chanel, as you'd expect, with very low-cut neckline, and she sort of covered up with a fluffy embellished coat.
She was also giving serious face with a badass look that killed! Dayum, girl!
Supermodel and coder Karlie was all about those strategic cut-outs in her Brandon Maxwell gown styled with Kwiat earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, while J.Hud looked like a cloud that had floated down from the heavens in a H&M strapless number with long, frothy tulle train and Paul Andrew heels.

We've known for a couple months that NBC's next planned musical is none other than Hairspray Live!, but we only just got our first casting news for the event on Monday… and we could not be more excited!
But that's not the only update we've got for ya — Harvey Fierstein will also be reprising his role as Edna Turnblad, for which he won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical back in 2003!
Two leads down, nine to go.
Make sure to catch J.Hud, Harvey, and the rest of the to-be-determined cast when Hairspray Live! debuts Wednesday, December 7 on NBC!
Whom do U want to see join the cast next??

While tons of famous friends and admirers took to Twitter to share their feels, and late night hosts James Corden and Stephen Colbert took some time to pay tribute to the legendary pop star, Jennifer Hudson decided to go a more musical route!
Hudson, who currently stars in the Broadway play The Color Purple, took a moment at the end of her show to address the crowd saying:
"I'm not a speaker by any means. I did not expect to have to speak on tonight, but God has his way. As we all know, today we lost a legend. Ooh, Jesus, we lost a legend who was a good friend of mine: Prince, who was dear to all of us. Every single one of us."
The 34-year-old actress went on to talk about her personal relationship with the deceased musician before getting the cast to sing Purple Rain with her!
