New Jennifer Hudson – Seeing & Hearing Double – Weight Watchers Commercial

Ugh, I know she has a lot of fans, but I find ALL of the Jennifer Hudson Weight Watcher commercials extremely annoying. Her voice sounds like screeching nails on a chalkboard, and this new commercial is no exception.

The commercial opens with the “old” Jennifer in a tight-fitting bright pink dress singing on American Idol, as the new improved, thin Jennifer comes from behind, singing in a creepy duet with her former self.

Ugh. Jennifer Hudson x 2 = even more annoying because she’s competing with herself to out-sing and (hard to believe) it gets more offensive than her “It’s a New Day” commercials!

Gawd, it’s not even January 1st yet, and I can’t even think about how many times we’ll have to listen to this awful commercial for the next couple of months! Where are my ear plugs?

UPDATE

Before I get a million Jennifer fans coming down on me, I should clarify!!!

I NEVER said she was a bad singer in general and I do not dislike her. It’s her commercials that annoy me.

There is a big difference hearing her sing one song, than hearing the weight watcher commercials played over and over ad nauseam.

UPDATE #2 January 2, 2012:

Okay, I admit the newest J Hud Weight Watcher commercials are not bad. The one with her singing “I am you, you are me, gotta stand up if we’re gonna be free” – with the other women who lost weight on the program. Her voice is strong without being over-the-top and it’s enjoyable to watch. There is another new commercial that is also equally better.

  1. Um, I think this post is right on target with how MOST people feel about Hudson. She’s irritating, plain and simple. Loser? Pathetic? Wow. You two must be describing yourselves.

  2. Name 5 female artist with a more soulful voice than Jennifer Hudson and I will atempt to give your post some of my attention. You seriously dont kno good music or God given talent if you think Jennifer Hudson’s voice is annoying

  3. Ya know…I am so tired of people not allowing others to voice their opinions without the “smarty pants” comments.

    Debbie has every right like or not like something and for all of you that feels compelled by a higher power to ridicule or attack for her thoughts are obviously immature and have no life.

  4. I just saw that commercial last night (like three times during an hour program) and was inspired to change channels the second and third times it was broadcast). I also switch away from the new soft core porn Mariah Carey commercial for Jenny Craig…just as I turned off Marie Osmond for NutriSystem and Kirstie Alley for whatever pre-packaged processed crap diet plan she shilled for. Hudson’s voice does nothing for me, nor does her style of music but that’s beside the point…

  5. Thanks tobeme!

    @Norma, don’t forget about the Janet Jackson Nutrisystem commercial and very soon we will be seeing Jessica Simpson for weight watchers.

    Every time I see Marie Osmond, she looks like a different person. At least her plastic surgeon is happy.

    And the Mariah Carey is laughable. They don’t show her “before” photos and the song is even MORE annoying than J Hud’s.

    It’s going to be a long winter for annoying celebrity weight loss commercials.

    I miss Carrie Fisher! Haha

  7. I know exactly what you are talking about. I am a music producer in Atlanta, and it is not Jennifer’s voice that is annoying. It’s the mix that some non-music person did for that commercial (double Jennifer) they doubled her voice and it sounds electronic, the only harmony was toward the end. It was an aweful mix. Terrible, it needs to be taken back to editing again, and I am JH fan….I have worked with her before.

  8. UGH. Dont’ apologize. She has become a corporate shill – and regardless of how much talent she has/had, anyone who represents a huge multinational corporation is ANNOYING and these commercials are no exception. This, my friends, is what you call a “SELL OUT”.

  9. I know how you feel. I can not stand the JH WW commercials. I want to throw something at the TV when they come on. I also can’t stand the way she jerks around when she is singing, like seriously, we get it, you were on American Idol, you were heavy, and then you lost weight. Good for you, you look amazing, but let the product speak for itself. I was on WW for years and loved it, but their new campaign is turning me off from wanting to rejoin the plan for fear of having to see her all over the meetings. How about using some of the meeting leaders to promote it, those men and women, are amazing and lost and kept off their weight, they are the true inspiration to me, not some celebrity that has access to every kind of trainer and plastic surgeon.

  10. Great idea, Britt. I think that would be very inspiring to use the meeting leaders and members.

    I’m wondering if most people relate more to celebrities. They’d rather see their weight loss journey because I suppose it makes THEM seem more “every day normal”

    But like you said, they do seem to have access to more expensive trainers, chefs, and yes, plastic surgeons (hello Marie Osmond!)

  11. I love the commercial and it has inspired me to lose weight. Jennifer has an amazing voice. I wish her every success in the world. How many of us could go through what she has gone through and still keep the weight off?

  12. I do not think JHud has a great voice. It’s okay, I guess. I hate singing voices like hers that are excessively loud and screechy. I mean it’s like they are hollering, not singing when they hit those high notes. And those awful commercials! Makes me want to hurl. And then hurl something at the television.

  13. I agree about her voice. I don’t mind her singing voice too much, but when she talks, it’s incredibly cringe-worthy for me. Her speaking voice and that “tough girl from the streets” accent sounds rough and unfeminine.

  14. I so agree with original article- one cannot hit mute on that remote fast enough before her first “if you got it” comes out….(don’t worry there will be more to follow…plenty more) used to be a fan of her acting…(way too much exposure now- the sight of her make you change channels -if not change of weight loss products too) I have agreed with simon cowell all along re: her singing.
