Jennifer Hudson starts her Smash run off with a bang. Or more specifically, an epic ballad titled “I Can’t Let Go.”

In this clip posted over at Entertainment Weekly, the Oscar-winner belts out the brand new song in character as Veronica “Ronnie” Moore. The tune was written by Smash composers and exec producers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

You’ll also noticed Derek (Jack Davenport), who directed the concert, standing in the wings; Ivy (Megan Hilty) and Karen (Katharine McPhee) singing back-up; Tom (Christian Borle) on the piano; and newcomers Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) and Kyle (Andy Mientus), whose characters penned the song on the episode.

She sounds amazing. And don’t forget – she came in SEVENTH place on season three of  American Idol! In other words, don’t stop believin’.

Check out Melanie Votaw’s preview of the new season of Smash.

    I saw the whole thing in the Smash preview screener I watched, and I predict the song will be a hit.
