Jennifer Hudson wowed audiences with her strong pipes during the third season of Fox’s American Idol before finishing in a shocking seventh place. Several years later J. Hud had the last laugh by winning an Academy Award for her role in Dreamgirls. Two years after taking home the Oscar, Hudson released her debut album and since then she has juggled both singing and acting, starring in several movies, including taking on the title role in the 2011 film Winnie Mandela. The Chicago native earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year and has been engaged to her fiancé David Otunga, the father of her son, since 2008.
