JENNIFER Hudson has gone from a talent show participant on the X Factor all the way to judge and mentor on ITV's The Voice. We have delved into the background of the sultry singer – so here are five things you may not know about her... 1 – Jennifer didn’t come anywhere CLOSE to winning American Idol While it’s hard to imagine now, superstar Jennifer actually came in SEVENTH in the finals of American Idol – where she first found her fame in 2004.

Here are my predictions for how Sunday night’s show at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood (starting at 6 p.m. Mountain time on … [Read more...] about Who will win Oscars?
