Jennifer Hudson's breakout roll as "Effie" in the Academy Award winning hit "Dreamgirls" garnered her every major acting award, but it was her powerful vocal abilities that first won her acclaim. On her self-titled debut album, Jennifer received four Grammy nominations and won for "Best R&B Album." VH1 viewers will now get a chance to hear Jennifer sing live at the "VH1 Divas" concert which will be televised live on VH1 on Thursday, September 17 at 9:00pm.

Special musical guests for the show include Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Cyndi Lauper and Martina McBride. Kathy Griffin, Toni Braxton, Ryan Kwanten, Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port and the cast of MGM Film "Fame" (Asher Book, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Kherington Payne, Naturi Naughton, and Walter Perez) have all joined the "VH1 Divas" show as presenters for the evening.

"We are excited that Jennifer Hudson will share her award-winning talent with our 'VH1 Divas' audience next week. Adding Jennifer to our roster of young yet hugely successful performers guarantees that the show will truly be a night to remember," said Tom Calderone, President, VH1. "We can't wait for our viewers to enjoy the performances that will reflect the talent, hard work and tenacity that has come to define this new generation of divas."

Paula Abdul is set to host the "VH1 Divas" live concert event. Previously announced "Divas" include Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks and Miley Cyrus.

For the first time ever, these leading ladies at the top of their musical game will perform together live at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York. Continuing in true "Divas" tradition, the evening will feature a night of unforgettable performances from various performers, presenters and special guests.
