Jennifer Hudson: Must Dreamgirl
Why her: So what if she got voted off American Idol's third season prematurely? A born belter with Whitney-esque power-ballad chops, the Chicago native beat out more than 700 competitors (including season 3 Idol winner Fantasia Barrino) for the role of divalicious Effie in the big-screen adaptation of the 1981 musical Dreamgirls, opposite Jamie Foxx and Beyoncé Knowles
Best diva-role perk: "I got paid to be trouble."
Surreal singing gig: Six months on a Disney cruise ship as a Hercules muse
Don't call us...: Hudson, on her failed audition for the role of Joanne in the movie version of Rent: "They put me right out of the room. It just wasn't for me."
Red-carpet regimen: "I'm working out trying to get all fit (for the premiere) so they'll go, 'That ain't Effie. Who is that?'"
Next: Dreamgirls opens Dec. 22; Hudson's also working on a debut album with plenty of "old-school R&B, my preferred style."
