Jennifer Hudson – Net Worth $20 Million
Turns out you don’t need to win American Idol to become a success. Jennifer Hudson finished seventh in 2004 and yet became an overnight success. Receiving an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and several others for her role in Dreamgirls, Hudson found herself to be a verifiable movie star with roles rolling in. Hudson has even performed at the White House and got her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013. Yeah, seventh ain’t so bad.
