Jennifer Hudson said on Late Night with Seth Meyers that her 5-year-old son, David, is a big fan of the late Michael Jackson.

Hudson showed a cell-phone video clip of her little son dancing like Jackson to “Beat It.” Her son is so taken with Michael Jackson, he even said he liked him more than his own mother. He later took his statement back, Hudson said on the show, and said Michael Jackson was his favorite dancer, and Hudson was his favorite singer.
