"American Idol" finalist and Academy Award nominee Jennifer Hudson,
Academy Award nominee Dame Helen Mirren, Academy Award nominee and
comedian Eddie Murphy, plus Oscar host and Emmy Award winner Ellen
DeGeneres sit down with Barbara Walters for a fascinating hour on the
26th Edition of "The Barbara Walters Special," airing on Sunday,
February 25 (7:00-8:00 p.m., ET) — and immediately following the
Academy Awards on the west coast — on the ABC Television Network.
"American Idol" finalist Jennifer Hudson, who was voted off the hit television show, speaks candidly about the show today. She tells Ms. Walters that if she had won "America Idol," she probably would not have gotten the role of Effie in "Dreamgirls."
