Jennifer Hudson

She didn’t even make the “American Idol” Top 5 in Season 3 (Diana DeGarmo, George Huff, LaToya London, Jasmine Trias and eventual winner Fantasia Barrino had that honor), but Hudson went on to win an Oscar for her role in “Dreamgirls.” Since then, Hudson has appeared in multiple films and will appear in the upcoming season of “Smash.”
