If you're familiar with Kate Hudson's career, then you know she can sing. While the actress doesn't have a ton of musical credits to her name, she does have one that's pretty significant: The 2009 movie-musical Nine, in which she performs the upbeat, glittery number "Cinema Italiano." She sounds beautiful in the film—but if you missed it, her impressive pipes may come as a surprise. 

How to Watch

Watch That's My Jam on NBC and Peacock


That was the case for many fans when they saw Hudson perform Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" during an episode of That's My Jam on NBC last year. During the "Musical Genre" challenge, Hudson was asked to perform the 2019 hit in a doo-wop style, and she completely nailed it. She also sounded technically phenomenal, which, like we said, stunned many. 

“You’d be shocked to see who comes in and scores,” That's My Jam Host Jimmy Fallon told Billboard about the That's My Jam Contestants who perhaps aren't known for their singing abilities. “Everyone we had on has a secret thing. They can all sing. Kate Hudson is amazing, by the way. I always knew she was musical, but I didn’t know if she could really sing–she could really sing.”

Sarah Hyland 's performance was particularly memorable. She competed in "Wheel of Musical Impressions" and did a hilariously spot-on Avril Lavigne voice to sing Christina Aguilera's "Genie in a Bottle."
