Jennifer Hudson sings to her old self in a new Weight Watchers commercial that contrasts svelte J.Hud with the plus-sized version of the star. In a commercial for the weight loss program reminiscent of the passé trend of living celebrities doing duets with dead stars, an upgraded Hudson does a beautiful rendition of “I Believe in You and Me” with an American-Idol era image of herself.
In the Weight Watchers ad, which first aired during the season finale of X Factor, Jennifer takes the stage in a body-hugging mauve dress and a sophisticated hairstyle — both of which illustrate how far she has come in both taste and fitness compared to the J.Hud of old. The ill-fitting hot pink number and mass of crimped curls do nothing for the far less chic visage the new Hudson joins onstage.
Yet, even though the previously plump version has nothing on the new Jennifer, both figures sing sweetly together, beaming in united happiness over the transformation that has has yielded the more fabulously hot Hudson.
