Jennifer Hudson will perform at this year's Oscars. The Academy announced that the Dreamgirls star will be singing for the big event.

"We're creating several musical sequences for the Oscars and we couldn't be happier that our friend, Jennifer Hudson, will be performing in one of them," the show's producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, said.

Hudson is excited about her upcoming performance, and shared that excitement with her fans via Twitter.

Hudson was actually full of good news on Wednesday--some that even rivals being asked to perform at the Oscars, too.

That's not the only news Jennifer Hudson was excited about sharing either. She has a new album available on iTunes.

Fans are no doubt thrilled to learn all this good news about and from Jennifer Hudson all in the same day. They can not only download her new album, but can look forward to seeing her perform live on TV at the Academy Awards later on this month. And if they don't mind waiting until next fall, they can see her on Broadway in an Oprah Winfrey-back revival of The Color Purple, too.

Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the Oscars this year. Last year's host was Ellen DeGeneres. Which of the two do you think will make the better host?

Are you a Jennifer Hudson fan? Will you be tuning in to the Oscars on February 22nd at 7:00 PM ET on ABC to see and hear her perform?
