Jennifer Hudson is halfway to becoming a member of the prestigious EGOT club. The Dreamgirls actress already has a Grammy and Oscar to her credit. All that’s missing are an Emmy and a Tony. It appears the latter might be a possibility sooner rather than later.

Essence magazine reports that Hudson will make her Broadway debut this year in a revival of The Color Purple. Reportedly, she’ll play lounge singer Shug Avery. Oprah Winfrey who co-produced the original will return to oversee the new production. Jennifer’s fellow American Idol Season 3 alum Fantasia Barrino played Celie during the musical’s original run. How awesome would it be if they reunited on stage for the revival.

What’s Instaoki you ask? It’s an instant karaoke segment on Capital FM. Jennifer Hudson recently appeared at the radio station with Gorgon City to promote their infectious dance single “Go All Night.”

During the promotional stop, J-Hud participated in the popular segment by covering Jessie J, Iggy Azalea and Beyonce. She playfully toyed with “Do It Like A Dude” and “Fancy,” even throwing some fun ad libs during the latter. However, the 33-year-old Oscar winner got serious when it came time to “Listen.”

After having a ‘come to Jesus’ moment, Hudson slayed her rendition. Remember when Bey and J-Hud battled it out on the Dreamgirls ballad during the 2007 Oscars telecast? How epic was that? Check out the fun clip below.

The Voice ended Season 7 with a bang. It was probably the best finale in the show’s history even though my guy (Chris Jamison) didn’t take the title. Thankfully the fantastic performances didn’t make me feel like I wasted two hours given the outcome.

Speaking of the Season 7 winner, Craig Wayne Boyd’s win isn’t at all surprising. With Adam Levine having three acts in the finals, I’m sure Maroon 5 fans were split on who to back while Blake Shelton’s didn’t have the same dilemma. I still have high hopes that Jamison will become the show’s first bona fide superstar.

Taking to the stage before the final results were Bruno Mars who rocked out gold hair curlers (LOL) to sing his hot new track “Uptown Funk,” Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson (who looked gorgeous), Hozier, Jessie J, Fall Out Boy and Meghan Trainor. However, the best number of the night came courtesy of Shelton.

Throughout the night, the show poked fun at the judges. When it came to Shelton, producers edited his confessionals to create a hilarious cover of MC Hammer’s ubiquitous hit, “Can’t Touch This.” It’s definitely must-see television. Check out all the performances below and weigh in if you agree with the results.

They previously collaborated on the Pharrell-produced JHUD cut, “He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.” Turnabout is only fair play. This time, Iggy Azalea enlists Jennifer Hudson on “Trouble” appearing on her forthcoming reissue, Reclassified.

The 24-year-old femcee shared a snippet of the laidback soul-tinged track on YouTube. I’m not that overly impressed with it so far. Perhaps, after the full length version is released, it’ll win me over. For now, it’s just ‘meh.’ Definitely the weakest collabo on her new album so far. Give it a listen below

For its first ever Concert For Valor in honor of Veterans Day, HBO put together a star-studded lineup. The likes of Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen and The Black Keys performed in front of 800,000 people at the National Mall.

For me, it was Jennifer Hudson and Jessie J who stole the show. The two teamed up for a killer cover of David Guetta and Sia’s gigantic hit, “Titanium.”Thanks to all the reality singing competitions, we’ve heard covers of this track ad nauseum. With that being said, this is one you have to check out. Both ladies showed off their powerful vocal ranges during the memorable duet.

Since sharing this track with ya’ll a few weeks ago, it’s been on constant repeat. I can’t get enough of the 90s house-influenced dance number.

English electronic music production duo, Gorgon City, tapped the Dreamgirls actress for “Go All Night. ” Jennifer Hudson leaves R&B to venture into deep house courtesy of Kiesza. The “Hideaway” singer co-wrote the dance track. Going out of her comfort zone suits J-Hud quite nicely. Hudson recently chatted with Entertainment Tonight about the music video.

“I used to go perform at the gay clubs and drag queens used to dress me,” Hudson told ET. “So, this is home to me, like I get the language, and I know where we’re going with it and that’s why I’m like ‘Let’s get into it, honey. What are we waiting for?’”

Directed by Roboshobo, the visual finds Hudson partying it up with Gorgon City at some underground rave til the morning light. Appropriately enough, there’s plenty of vogueing, drag queens and fun all around. The track is off the DJs’ debut album Sirens in stores now. Check out the fun clip below.

If you’re not feelin’ all the retro-tinged tracks Jennifer Hudson is offering up these days, perhaps this new dance ditty is more to your liking.

English electronic music production duo, Gorgon City, taps the Dreamgirls actress for “Go All Night” which finds Hudson going deep house courtesy of Kiesza. The “Hideaway” singer co-wrote the dance track. It’s nice seeing J-Hud venturing out of her comfort zone. This suits her just nicely.

Go All Night” is off Gorgon City’s forthcoming debut album, Sirens, due out on October 6th in the UK. Other artists featured on the LP include MNEK, Laura Welsh, Maverick Sabre, Katy B, Erik Hassle, Yasmin and many others. Give the Hudson-assisted number a listen below and sound off afterward.

2014 is definitely the year of Iggy Azalea. The Aussie rapper is everywhere, conquering everything she touches. Woman’s got the Midas Touch. Hoping to score some of that good fortune is Jennifer Hudson. She’s the latest singer to tap Azalea for a rap interlude.

He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” is another retro-disco inspired track off Hudson’s forthcoming album, JHUD, dropping September 23. While a solid album filler, the Pharrell Williams-produced track doesn’t have the oomph to become a hit single. Kinda of a waste using Iggy’s talent and buzz on this throwaway.

I fear JHUD might bomb big time when released next week. If it does, I hope it doesn’t put the nail on the coffin of Jennifer’s recording career. Someone give this woman a hit. Give “He Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” a listen below.
