Jennifer Hudson is coming to the American television scene. The Grammy-winning artist and Academy Award recipient has a new talk show that will air in America this fall. ‘The Jennifer Hudson Show’ features J-Hud, which she’s called by her friends from the entertainment industry, as the main host of the one-hour show.
The show can be viewed on Fox television stations, said Warner Bros in their announcement this Wednesday.
“I have experienced so much in my life; I’ve seen the highest of the highs, the lowest of the lows, and just about everything in between, but as my mother always told me, ‘Once you think you’ve seen it all, just keep on living,'” Hudson explained in an interview.
Hudson is excited, she said, that she’ll get to meet different people in the show. “People from around the world have been a part of my journey from the beginning — twenty years ago — and I’m so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all.”
“I have always loved people, and I cannot wait to connect on a deeper level and let audiences see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return. And I couldn’t be more thrilled to do it alongside this incredible team. We’re about to have a lot of fun and shake things up a little bit!”
When she was younger, Hudson went onto “American Idol” and tried out for the famed competition. She didn’t win the show, but her career still continued with many opportunities that would later lead to her success. After being cast as Effie White, one of Dream Girls’ leading ladies, Hudson was awarded an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
Hudson also released several albums, including her self-titled album in 2008, Jennifer Hudson, I Remember me(2011), JHUD (2014), and RESPECT (2021). The artist is behind hit songs like “Spotlight,” “If This Isn’t Love,” “Where You At,” and her rendition of Tony-winning Broadway musical’s “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going.”
As one of the coaches on “The Voice,” Hudson has helped singers from all around achieve their dreams.
‘The Hudson Show,’ lasting an hour, will make its way to the television this fall.
