Oscar and Grammy-winning singer and actress Jennifer Hudson will be performing at the 87th Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said today. “We’re creating several musical sequences for the Oscars and we couldn’t be happier that our friend, Jennifer Hudson, will be performing in one of them,” says Zadan and Meron. Hudson won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 2006’s Dreamgirls. Her self-titled debut album won the 2008 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album, and this year she was nominated for Best R&B Performance for the song “It’s Your World,” from her 2014 album, “JHUD.” The 87th Oscars air live on Sunday, February 22 on ABC.
