You All Know Uzo Aduba Can Act, But Did You Know She Can Sing Too?! Listen To Promise You From Her New Movie Pearly Gates HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersEmmys

This just isn't fair.

Not only is Uzo Aduba an Emmy Award-winning actress, but she's got some pipes, too!

After getting her big break on Orange Is the New Black, Uzo is now starring in the musical movie Pearly Gates, where she gets to show off her trained singing voice.

That's right. Uzo actually went to college for classical vocal performance at Boston University, so, as proven in this track, Promise You, she's definitely going to kill it in this movie.

The movie doesn't come out until 2015, but due to her win for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy, the filmmakers decided to pre-release her single, and we couldn't be more excited about it.

Seriously. She's so good at everything she does!

Could Uzo be the next person to EGOT? We're totally thinking yes.

Ch-ch-check out Uzo singing Promise You and decide for yourself (above)!

Orange Is The New Black's Laura Prepon, Uzo Aduba, Taryn Manning & Samira Wiley Go Crazy For Color At The Emmys

Orange is The New Black is taking over the 2014 Emmys, y'all!

Laura Prepon, Uzo Aduba, Taryn Manning and Samira Wiley are just a sampling of the Netflix ladies on the red carpet tonight — and we're loving that these jailbirds chose to rock colors for the evening.

Uzo fabulously donned crimson Christian Siriano and Taryn flashed a fab gold gown — while Samira rocked a bright yellow frock with ear cuffs by Graziela Gems and a EFFY Jewelry ring…

But we're slightly disappointed in Laura's choice of ensembles!

Her Gustavo Cadile design is too much fabric, even for the tallest of actresses.

Overall we can't hold Miz Prepon's look against the entire team — because the others slayed!

Orange Is The New Black's Uzo Aduba Keeps It Beautifully Simple At The MTV Video Music Awards

Simple and classy!

Orange Is The New Black's Uzo Aduba was one of the more maturely dressed women at the VMAs tonight.

You must admit it's a nice change from all the boobies and butts we've been treated to so far. Not that we have anything against chain dresses that barely cover anything, but variety is always appreciated!

We also appreciate how Uzo didn't go full-on black and had an ornate silver pattern along the waistline and on the shoulders. So intricate!

You just gotta love her!

Orange Is The New Black Starlets Work Their Monochromatic Moves At The Creative Emmy Awards! Check Out Their Winning Looks HERE!

orange is the new black creative emmys

Stunning!

The cast of Orange is the New Black hit the red carpet at this year's Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday and looked great doing it.

Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba, and Natasha Lyonne all went for a black and/or white look for the evening, and we think all three pulled it off!

All three of our Litchfield ladies were nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy, alongside Shameless' Joan Cusack and Saturday Night Live hosts Melissa McCarthy and Tina Fey.

But it was Uzo who took home the statuette, solidifying herself as both a fan favorite and critical darling of the prison comedy.

But now, to the fashion!

Laverne hit the red carpet in a floor-length Donna Karan bedazzled number, complete with a complimentary bejeweled clutch and matching jewelry.

While her windswept hair looked flawlessly curly, her makeup made her look

This is so thrilling!!

Uzo Aduba, otherwise known as Crazy Eyes on Netflix's hit series Orange Is The New Black, is officially an Emmy-winning actress after taking on the troubled role in Jenji Kohan's latest small screen creation!

A vision in white, Uzo glided across the stage as Morgan Freeman presented her with the HUGE honor!

Words were overwhelmed with tears as the actress spoke at the podium:

"I don't know how to say how incredibly impressed I am to be a part of this show."

She went on to tell stories of her resilient mother, who sacrificed so much in order to live in America and stories of her wonderful cast.

After the night was over, Uzo took to Twitter to express her gratefulness of it all:

Totally deserving! If you haven't seen her wonderful performance of both heart and humor on OITNB, you need to experience it all!

Ch-ch-check out the press room after Uzo's BIG win, where she talks about Mr. Freeman, her mother and more…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Filed under: Conan O'BrienLate Night TV

uzo aduba teaches conan obrien how to make crazy eyes

Crazy Eyes is definitely one of our favorite characters on Orange is the New Black by far - she's just SO funny!

Uzo Aduba, the actress who plays Crazy Eyes on the hit series, stopped by Conan O'Brien's show last night to give him a lesson on how to make his own 'crazy eyes.'

While we don't think anyone will ever beat Uzo in the crazy eyes department, we give Conan credit for trying - even if he looked completely ridiculous in the process!

Check out Conan's crazy eyes (below)!

OITNB's Taylor Schilling, Laverne Cox, & Uzo Aduba Pull Off Bold Statement Pieces At Their Panel!

Taylor Schilling, Laverne Cox, and Uzo Aduba wow at Netflix's Orange Is The New Black panel discussion!

With a cast this stunning, it’s no wonder everyone’s watching Orange Is The New Black!

Well, okay, maybe there are a few more factors since beige and orange jumpsuits aren’t exactly made to wow, but this trio definitely know how to bring it on the red carpet!

Taylor Schilling, Laverne Cox, and Uzo Aduba were all looking fantastic at Netflix’s OITNB panel discussion in El Lay on Monday.

The beautiful blonde showed off her sexy legs in an eggplant Roland Mouret frock with a sophisticated cut, but kept things edgy with her red python pumps and sleek locks!

She’s far from boring, and well, obviously so was Laverne!

Not only was she highlighting her curves in the black Opening Ceremony mini dress she opted for, but her fabby gams, too! And a combo of Lizzie Fortunato, Lady Grey, Elizabeth Cole, and Bing Bang NYC baubles completed her sassy ensem.

Obsessed!

And last but obviously not least, Uzo kept things sophisticated in a patterned fit-and-flare frock, but accented it with bold cobalt blue pumps, gold jewelry, and her gorge updo.

Get it, gurl!
