Watch Jennifer, as Veronica Moore, bring the house down in a clip from the Feb. 26 episode of ‘Smash!’

If you haven’t been watching the second season of Smash — shame on you, by the way — allow me to show you what you’ve been missing: Next Tuesday’s episode finds Derek (Jack Davenport) in charge of a major televised concert, so naturally he calls in the big guns for help. Enter Jennifer Hudson, who rounds out her multi-episode guest stint as Broadway legend Veronica Moore with an incredible performance of “I Got Love” in this clip, obtained exclusively by HollywoodLife.com.

Of course, Veronica’s greatest performance will be finally standing up to her overbearing mother (Sheryl Lee Ralph), who remains determined to call every shot in her daughter’s career. Think of her as the Kris Jenner of the Broadway world; I know I do.

And even though the episode is titled “The Song,” Veronica’s show-stopping number — originally from the musical Purlie — is not the track being referenced. That honor goes to the last-minute song Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) is forced to conjure up, with the help of Kyle (Andy Mientus) and Karen (Katharine McPhee). Needless to say, we’ll learn a lot more about the mysterious Brooklyn bad boy as we work our way through his song-writing process.

Elsewhere, Julia (Debra Messing) continues to lock creative horns with Peter (Daniel Sunjata) as they attempt to work together — with varying degrees of success — while Eileen (Anjelica Huston) arrives at a “moral crossroads with huge ramifications for Bombshell.”

Never a dull moment on Smash!

Watch Veronica’s performance of “I Got Love” below, and be sure to catch the full episode Feb. 26:

The show is soooo GOOD!. Why aren´t enough people watching it?
Shame in them! I really hope things pick up soon.

We love the show. BTW I am loving the Karen / Derek growing friendship so far. I think he has feelings for her. Awww.
Hope they get together down the road, even though she will be with Jimmy. Can´t wait for next week!
