JHud’s Dream Guests… as Simon Cowell Joins Premiere Show
September 02, 2022
Jennifer Hudson is making a list, and you’d better believe she’s working her way through it!
Her dream guest, dead or alive (excluding Aretha Franklin, who she portrayed in the 2021 biopic “Respect”), would be Whitney Houston.
“If we could do Whitney, I would love to do Whitney,” Jenn exclaimed during an interview. Jenn would also love to sit down with iconic R&B singer Smokey Robinson, who she collaborated with during a promotional shoot for “Respect.”
Simon Cowell, who was a judge on Season 3 of “American Idol” when Jennifer competed, has always been up there on the singer’s wish list.
“I think it would be so interesting,” she said. “‘Idol’was 18 years ago, so why not? I think people will be interested, [people] who’ve followed my journey for 20 years. See us sit down and see us have a conversation. I think that would be awesome to do.
