American Idol” fans enjoyed an all-star entertainment Wednesday night featuring performances by two of the hottest recording artists today– Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus.

Miley, dressed in a white beaded gown offered “The Climb,” soundtrack from Hannah Montana: The Movie—the No.1 movie in America. The song is also on the U.S. pop, country and adult contemporary charts.

Meanwhile, Jamie Foxx has apologized to the teen star for a radio routine in which he urged the 16-year-old to “make a sex tape and grow up.”

When the incident was brought up on the “Tonight” show Tuesday, Foxx apologized and said: “I didn’t mean it maliciously…. sometimes as comedians, you know, we go a little too far.”
