Jennifer Hudson, who was eliminated from the final 7 of American Idol's season 3, returned to the singing competition to perform with Candice Glover, the night's eventual winner.

The two powerhouse vocalists took on Natalie Cole’s “Inseparable.” After Hudson and Glover teamed up to tackle the melody throughout the majority of the song, much to the judges delight, Hudson took a step back to let Glover finish it off on her own. “Sing it, Candice,” she said as she pulled back her own mic. The duo received a much-deserved standing ovation from the judges and audience alike.

Hudson’s elimination in season 3 was seen as premature by both the fans and the judges. However, Hudson has since earned a spot as a true star of the music industry. She’s gone on to win a Grammy and an Oscar for her turn as Effie White in the critically acclaimed Dreamgirls musical, in which she did the unthinkable in outshining Beyoncé. She also had the honor of performing Al Green’s "Let’s Stay Together" at the Inaugural Ball back in January.
