Academy Award-winning Best Supporting Actress and singer Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) made it on the list of "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2007," to air on ABC on Thursday, December 6.

Also on the list are record-breaking recording artist Justin Timberlake, soccer superstar David Beckham and his wife, Victoria Beckham (aka "Posh Spice"), actress Katherine Heigl, former President Bill Clinton, and MySpace creators Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe.

According to ABC, there will also be two surprise guests, including The Number One Most Fascinating Person of 2007.

Last year's list included rapper Jay-Z, TV-actor Patrick Dempsey and Terri Irwin; Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi topped the 2006 "Fascinating" person list.

Hudson, who rose to fame as a finalist on "American Idol" and has appeared onstage in the Actors' Fund concert of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, has also picked up a multitude of critical awards for her turn as Effie. It was recently announced that she will record her debut solo album with legendary producer Clive Davis this March.
