One of the biggest stars to grace the stage at the American Idol finale on Thursday night was the talent competition's own Jennifer Hudson.
The Oscar- and Grammy-winning performer – looking super slim in a black top and black jeans – took the stage to sing "Inseparable" with finalist Candice Glover.
Though Hudson, who was shockingly eliminated from the top seven of season 3, belted out high note after glorious high note, she let Candice, 23, have her a moment in the spotlight at the end of the song when she stood back and said, "Sing it, Candice."
And sing it she did! Candice held her own, hitting the final notes of the Natalie Cole song.

Watch your back, Jennifer Aniston.
The Wanderulst star, 44, made quite the fashion statement at Monday's premiere of Call Me Crazy, a Lifetime film about mental illness.
Wearing a simple black romper with her hair tied back in a ponytail, the actress revealed a pattern of circular marks on her back – probably the result of cupping, a Chinese form of alternative medicine designed to promote circulation.

It was a great night for music at the Academy Awards on Sunday – particularly for the ladies.
But who really knocked it out of the park?
Jennifer Hudson's performance of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" brought the audience to its feet, while Barbra Streisand delivered a wonderful tribute to Marvin Hamlisch with her rendition of "The Way We Were."

While the northeast braved a midwinter blizzard, the West Coast was feeling the heat – and we're not just talking about the comparatively warmer weather.
With the Grammy Awards on the horizon, the most famous faces of the industry were in their finest form Saturday to celebrate music's biggest night.
John Mayer and Katy Perry took their date night up a notch at Clive Davis and The Recording Academy's Annual Pre-Grammy Gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where they were spotted holding hands while Patti Smith performed. The couple was color-coordinated: he was in a white dinner jacket and black bow tie, and she wore a white designer dress.

Smash is back! And NBC's musical about musicals is delivering a new diva – and even more drama – in season 2.
After a solid preview in Boston, the cast of the Marilyn Monroe musical Bombshell – including dueling divas Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty) – are back in the Big Apple and hoping to make their Broadway debut at the fabled St. James Theatre.
But opening isn't going to be easy: Bombshell producer Eileen Rand's ex-husband launches a plan to make her funding disappear and close down the show. While Eileen (Anjelica Huston) and her team, director Derek Wills (Jack Davenport) and writers Julia Houston (Debra Messing) and Tom Levitt (Christian Borle), do their best to keep up appearances, Smash's characters deal with a variety of other problems.
