Jennifer Hudson said she “wouldn’t have missed this for the world” as she supported her Dreamgirls co-star, Beyonce, at Coachella.

The superstar took to the stage at the music festival in Indio, California, for the second weekend in a row, and Hudson was there to cheer her on.

She shared a picture of the duo together backstage, writing: “It’s not what u do but how u do it ! And @Beyonce you have out done yourself!

“Only u know how to top this! I wouldn’t have missed this for the world! #beychella”

The pair, along with Anika Noni Rose, starred in the 2006 film about a trio of soul singers in the 1960s, which landed Hudson a best supporting actress Oscar.
