LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Hollywood stars seem to be aligned for Jennifer Hudson. Access Hollywood has confirmed that the former “American Idol” contestant signed a record deal with Clive Davis’ J Records. Jennifer revealed her plans to Access this past Saturday at the “A Fine Romance” event in Hollywood.

“My album, I’ll be recording my album! I just signed my record deal two weeks ago. So I’m starting on that in January.”

At J Records, Ms. Hudson joins such music giants as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Barry Manilow, but Jennifer will also feel right at home with her former “Idol”-mates as the J/Arista label houses many of her “Idol” counterparts like Carrie Underwood, Fantasia, Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks.

The J Records label is part of the Sony BMG music conglomerate.

Oprah Winfrey profiled the cast of “Dreamgirls,” including Hudson, on her Monday, November 20th, 2006 show.

In her show, she included the following bite from “Idol” judge Simon Cowell:

“We have our history together, don’t we, Jennifer?” Simon told Jennifer via Oprah. “Now I feel my criticism has probably had a significant part in your career, because the buzz on you is huge. I heard your [version] of ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’ today, and I would like to be the first to eat a massive dose of humble pie. Because there are good performances and occasionally there are extraordinary performances. That was extraordinary, Jennifer, and I feel very proud for you. I feel we had a very small part in what’s happened in your life, and please thank me when you get your Oscar.”

I loved Jennifer Hudson in American Idol. In fact she was probably my favorite AI of all contestants in all series.

I wish her a lot of success.
