Headlines: Jennifer Hudson Talks Broadway, David Archuleta Makeup Concert

Jennifer Hudson on Broadway – “No. And you think like, wow, all of that is gonna happen on this little stage?” Hudson said. “You know, It’s so exciting, I wanna sing in here right now!” Previews for “The Color Purple” began this past week. Hudson opens on Broadway next month. “My first trip to New York was when I was coming to do the news for being eliminated from ‘American Idol,'” she said. “And then to fast-forward all the way to here now, it’s like full circle in so many different ways.” She was 23 when she made the finals of “American Idol” in 2004. It was before her dramatic weight loss, and judges criticized her wardrobe. She finished seventh. But she says she emerged from that unscathed: “Yes, I did. But it gives you a tough skin.
