Jennifer Hudson is headed to a big show.

The 37-year-old star — who won a Best Supporting Actress award in 2006 for her performance in the Bill Condon-directed hit Dreamgirls — has been invited to perform at the glitzy Oscars bash in Los Angeles on Feb. 24.

The Academy wrote on its official Twitter account: “Things we’d like to announce today: 1. @IAMJHUD will perform the nominated song ‘I’ll Fight’ on the #Oscars! 2. This has been our favorite tweet of the day.”

The track appears in the documentary RBG and has been nominated for the coveted Best Original Song going, alongside music featured in Star Is Born, Black Panther, Mary Poppins Returns and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

Hudson previously revealed she keeps her Oscar in a “hidden office,” admitting she won’t keep it in her bathroom because she doesn’t want “dirty hands” touching it.

The chart-topping singer starred alongside Beyoncé and Eddie Murphy in Dreamgirls.
