Getting to work on her newest project, Jennifer Hudson was spotted on the set of "Smash" in New York City on Monday (August 20).

The Grammy award-winning songstress donned a lengthy, purple top matched with black leggings before later slipping into a comfortable cardigan while showing her son, David Otunga Jr., around the location.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, the 30 year-old "American Idol" contestant is set to perform in a multi-arc episode of the NBC show. She will play the role of Veronica Moore, a Broadway star.

Miss Hudson recently opened up about the news stating, "It's just the perfect opportunity, it's gonna be challenging, and I'm a little bit intimidated to play this big Broadway star. But it's gonna be a great experience. I can't wait to get started."

"Smash" is set to premiere early next year.
