In case you didn't hear, Jennifer Hudson is joining the cast of the NBC show "Smash" where she joins former American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee on the show.
A preview of J. Hud performing an original song "I Can't Let Go" has just been released and the shows the pipes that she has big time.
The show returns for it's second season on Tuesday Feb. 5th, with Hudson debuting as a cast member.
The song is great and we cannot state how great she looks! Check out the performance above!-DocFB
Diagnosis: J. Hud reminds us of a old school Chaka Khan....
Smash Season 2 will see Jennifer Hudson join the cast alongside Katharine McPhee. We almost forgot that BOTH were former contestants on American Idol. You know, when Idol actually made it about talent instead of the hosts?
J.Hud will be playing a 2 time Tony Award Winner on the show. The Oscar winner shows off her singing chops in the sneak peak which you can watch above.
We haven't seen season 1 although our friend Joe is a huge Katharine McPhee fan. We just might have to watch season 2.
What do U think of J. Hud joining the "Smash" cast?-DocFB
Diagnosis: 2 real Idol winners in the end.....
Former American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee is headlining a charity event for Elevate Hope this Sunday.
The charity is run by Sheila E. and Lynn Maybry and it benefits Vista Del Mar, giving underprivileged kids a chance to be taught music and the donating of musical instruments. You have no idea what this means to the kids of a place like Vista Del Mar.
Others scheduled to attend are James Pickens Jr., Sofia Milos, Justin Chambers, and more.
The event will be at Boulevard3 this Sunday and we hope you can attend.

Thanks to Sheila & Lynn for what they do for Vista Del Mar.-Dr.FB
Katharine McPhee, American Idol runner-up to that Taylor dude, debuted her new look this week to People magazine.
She looks hot and although I do not own her CD, I still think she would have benefited more from winning American Idol. Where is that Taylor dude now? Am I wrong?-Dr.FB
