Back in January, Entertainment Weekly confirmed Hudson would play Franklin. The two singers had been working together on the role before Ms. Franklin passed.

Barrino sang a tribute to Ms. Franklin and the Queen of Soul seemed pleased with the performance. Franklin is known for throwing off her wig at concerts and Barrino is known for throwing off her shoes. So Barrino may, in fact, be the best woman for the job.
