It's a sorta-date night for Derek (Jack Davenport) and Karen (Katharine McPhee) on the season-two premiere of Smash, and they are taking in a Broadway show. And when this Broadway show stars Veronica Moore (Jennifer Hudson), you know you're in for some serious singing.
In this exclusive first look, Hudson lets it rip on stage while performing "Mama Makes Three," a song from her hit Broadway show about an overbearing stage mother. Ronnie sounds amazing, but that might be in part because she has a lot of personal experience to draw from.
Check out the sneak peek at the season premiere of Smash (Feb. 5) below!
