TIMELINE

Jennifer Hudsonbutton.gif (123 bytes) Jennifer was born on September 12, 1981 in Chicago. In 2004, America began to get to know Jennifer as she made the Top 12 finalists on American Idol. Jennifer soon became one of the few finalists with strong R&B voices, with Jennifer becoming a little more visible with her verbal sparring with judge Simon Cowell. American Idol voters didn't let Jennifer get beyond the Top 7, and for most finalists in that situation, that might be the peak of their career - but not Jennifer. Jennifer went on to audition and get the highly sought-after role of Effie White in the motion picture adaptation of the classic Broadway play Dreamgirls. While many American Idol alumni were struggling to keep their music careers afloat, Jennifer was walking home with an Academy Award.

January
American Idol Season 3: Greatest Soul Classicsbutton.gif (123 bytes) The 3rd season of American Idol began and Jennifer made it into the Top 12 finalists (as a 'wild card' finalist selected by judge Randy Jackson).

April
button.gif (123 bytes) Jennifer was voted of
American Idol after making it to the Top 7 finalists. Elton John echoed the feelings of many American Idol fans after Jennifer was felt to be prematurely voted out of the contest: "The three people I was really impressed with, and they just happened to be black, young female singers, and they all seem to be landing in the bottom three. They have great voices. The fact that they're constantly in the bottom three - and I don't want to set myself up here - but I find it incredibly racist."
