Jennifer Hudson talks Season 2 of "Smash."

Jennifer Hudson is heading to "Smash" and Karen (Katherine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty) better watch out.

In a recent interview with Parade, Oscar winner Hudson opened up about her upcoming role on Season 2 of "Smash."

"I'm excited about it. I'm gearing up for it," Hudson said. "It's a guest appearance but we'll see how it goes! I'll be singing and dancing since I play a Broadway star so Broadway stars do it all! If I'm doing it all, everybody better get ready!"

Hudson, an Oscar winner, is set to play a Tony-winning Broadway star named Veronica Moore,
who impacts the lives of Karen and Ivy.

"We're thrilled to have Jennifer Hudson coming to ‘Smash,’” Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "This series is a showcase for some of the best musical talent in the business and that's a fitting description for Jennifer Hudson. Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it."

Not only will "Smash" see new faces like Hudson, Andy Mientus and Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan, but a fictional new musical will be competing with the Marilyn Monroe-centered show "Bombshell" in Season 2.

"Smash" will return to NBC in early 2013.
