From the Midnight Special series. The diva even does The Bump towards the end of her 1976 smash! And teases a guy who sings along onstage with her. Wikipedia has an interesting entry about this song--which was originally recored by Sylvester!--including this little tidbit:

In order to get into the song, she and the song's producer, Hal Davis loosened up in the studio by drinking alcoholic beverages. Davis also instructed the song's engineer, Russ Terrana, to install a strobe light so that Ross could be in the " disco" mindset.[1] As the song changed from being a ballad to uptempo, Ross became more comfortable with herself and the material; she hummed, sang bit parts, laughed, danced around and even imitated Billie Holiday. [2] The carefree and sensual nature of Ross' vocals and the music's direction helped to sell the song.

(I think I may have posted this before, but I tend to loosen up with alcoholic beverages occasionally myself, and quite a few brain cells have been lost as a result.)

This clip illustrates perfectly the deficient costuming of the 'One Night Only Scene' in the film version of Dreamgirls. I'll never forgive Condon for not using living legend Mackie on that film.
