Jennifer Hudson -- Liar, Ingrate?

Jennifer Hudson has been trash-talking "American Idol" and dissing on Simon Cowell. But the video evidence makes it clear -- the Dreamgirl is dreaming it all up.

"EXTRA" rolled back the tapes of Hudson on "Idol," and Simon clearly gave her props throughout the season, saying that she was a "front-runner" and calling her "great" multiple times -- high praise from the often harsh Cowell.

Why would Hudson rant about the show and the judge who moved her from obscurity to Oscar winner? Is she an ingrate? Watch the video, then vote.
