Jennifer Hudson gets a true opportunity to shine in next week’s Smash. This week, she told Derek that she wanted to change her image and stop being Broadway’s “darling”. To do this, she’s enlisted Derek’s help to put together a concert that will give her a chance to sing something different. But how to go about finding the perfect song? Her momager doesn’t want her to stray too far from her wholesome image, so Karen calls in a favor from Jimmy and Kyle to help Veronica. Unfortunately, Jimmy’s pride and never-ending stubbornness might sabotage their big break.
Elsewhere in the episode, Peter continues to challenge Julia as critique’s Bombshell’s book and pushes her to do better and Eileen finds herself in a bind when she’s presented with a moral choice that could have huge ramifications for the show.
