A little rain need not stop the show.

The Oscar and Grammy winner will appear alongside will.i.am, Tom Jones, and Gavin Rossdale when the talent-search makes its debut on ITV1 in January (after a four year stint on the BBC).

Hudson’s involvement comes on the heels of her recent signing with Epic Records and spot in NBC’s  ‘Hairspray Live!’

If you thought Jennifer Hudson‘s absence from news headlines was indication she wasn’t busy, you couldn’t be more mistaken.

As she preps for her leading role in NBC’s ‘Hairspray Live!’ (December 7th) and hitting the judges’ bench for ‘The Voice UK,’ the Grammy-winning diva is also reportedly hard at work preparing for her role in Adam Sandler’s Netflix project ‘Sandy Wexler.’  But, fans of Hudson’s claim to fame – music – needn’t worry they’ll be neglected much longer.
