For the first time since appearing on ABC’s hit singing competition series American Idol, EGOT winner Jennifer Hudson will reunite with former Idol judge Simon Cowell during the premiere episode of her daytime talk show.
On The Jennifer Hudson Show, the two will have their first sit-down conversation since Hudson placed seventh on Season 3 of the singing competition series in 2004.

The premiere episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show will air on Monday, Sept. 12.
The new daytime talk show will “feature celebrity interviews, topical stories, community heroes, viral sensations, and music. Hudson will use her powerful voice in a new way, bringing fun, uplifting conversations to the forefront, shining a light on extraordinary stories, talents, and passions. The Jennifer Hudson Show will be a destination to laugh, learn, and feel inspired.”
