Jennifer Hudson returned to the show that catapulted her career, this time as a fully-fledged star. On Thursday night, the "American Idol" third season contestant took to the stage to perform "Where You At," a bold ballad from her newly released sophomore album I Remember Me. But Hudson's power vocals weren't the only things basking in the spotlight - her new Weight Watchers physique was also on full display in an elegant black-and-gold number.
"It feels good to be home," the Dreamgirls star said during the audience's standing ovation.
The Academy Award winner also has a biopic about Nelson Mandela's wife titled Winnie (co-starring Terrence Howard) due out later this year.
