DREAMGIRLS star JENNIFER HUDSON perfected her singing talents on the high seas - crooning Disney showtunes on cruises. The former American Idol star was a star on the Disney cruise ship, where her standards included LION KING hit CIRCLE OF LIFE and she narrated HERCULES: THE MUSICAL. But the Oscar-nominated star admits she quickly became sick of the sea. She recalls, "I was on the ship six months, and after a while everything begins to feel like Groundhog Day - you're going to the same places every cruise and you're doing the same things."
