Hudson began her entertainment career in 2004 as a contestant on "Idol." She followed this up with a starring role in the 2006 film "Dreamgirls," for which she won a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award.

She's returning to the small screen to play a Tony-Award winning Broadway star in "Smash," which focuses on the world of New York's theatre district.

According to the series' executive producer Steven Spielberg, "First Dreamgirls, now Smash. I have no doubt Jennifer will continue to deliver even more inspiration to the audience responsible for giving us a second season on NBC."
