Despite having an Oscar under her belt, Jennifer Hudson is "nervous" to join a fellow American Idol runner-up, Katharine McPhee, for a guest stint on NBC's musical drama Smash.

"I'm very anxious but super excited all at the same time," Hudson told Celebuzz at theĀ Pampers Lullabies event in New York City.

"I've always been a fan of the show and [McPhee]. She's one of my favorite Idols."

What role will she be taking on in the series?

In the show, Hudson, 30, will be playing a "successful Broadway star" who will be doing "a lot of dancing and singing."

"It's a big challenge to be a Broadway star, so I'm a little nervous about it," she said.

"It's intimidating, but I like a challenge."
