The new trailer for season 2 of Smash opens with Katharine McPhee's character, Karen Cartwright, telling Megan Hilty's character, Ivy Lynn, to stay out of her elevator.

And that's not even the biggest diva moment!

That honor would go to show newcomer Jennifer Hudson, who will play Broadway sensation (and two-time Tony winner) Veronica Moore. There will be no shortage of powerhouse vocals from Hudson, who belts out more than a few high notes in the trailer. And looks gorgeous doing it.

"Someone's always waiting to take you down, honey," Moore tells Cartwright in one scene. "But if the work's good, they won't be able to."

We'll see how good the work is when the second season debuts Feb. 5 on NBC. But until then the super-sized trailer has plenty of drama, including new love interests, backstabbing, scandal, twists, big, big, big musical numbers.
