Whether you're the current stars of American Idol or a breakthrough actress who got her start on the show, the FOX series opens doors for you.
Recently, those doors led to an Entertainment Weekly party for rapper and producer, Timbaland. Randy Jackson was there with the guest of honor, posing alongside Ryan Seacrest.
Also on hand? Jennifer Hudson. She was fortunate enough to find time with Justin Timberlake. Every other woman at the party probably hated her for it.
