In this week’s Winter TV preview issue of Entertainment Weekly, fans will notice superstar Jennifer Hudson gracing the cover alongside her new Smash co-stars Megan Hilty and fellow American Idol-er Katherine McPhee.
She’s playing herself. That’s Liza with a ‘Z’ of course.
Jennifer Hudson got her start on a little show called ‘American Idol’. Now she’s joining fellow AI alum, Katharine McPhee, for her trip back to the small screen. Hudson is set for a multi-episode appearance on the musical drama, ‘Smash,’ which takes a closer look at what it takes to put on a Broadway show.
