Jennifer Hudson Predicts Her Future
|This is an interesting video of Jennifer Hudson after she had been kicked off of American Idol. What's kind of eerie is that she says she "wants to be Jennifer Holliday in DREAMGIRLS". Paula follows by saying "It's only the beginning for you." It sure is Jen, it sure is. There is also an article on Jenn in the LA Daily News. Here is an excerpt:|
"Nobody knows that better than Jennifer Hudson, who was booted in the "American Idol" semi-finals in the show's third season. Host Simon Cowell told her, "You only get one shot, and the runner-ups, you ain't never gonna be seen again." No so fast. The 25-year-old Hudson will be returning in December with a starring role in film adaptation of the Broadway musical "Dreamgirls." Hudson plays Effie, a singer in a Supremes-style girl group who's pushed aside to make room for the more mainstream Deena (pop star Beyonce). It's a show-stopping role, and since a sneak peek at Cannes, Hudson has been made a favorite to land an Oscar nod. "

"But I knew I'd be back. My dream wasn't to win 'American Idol.' I knew something greater was in store for me. I've believed that for 17 years, and now it's finally here." -Jennifer Hudson in LA Daily News
