The always gracious singer and Chicago native Jennifer Hudson told Oprah Winfrey today that she's in a good place -- reflecting on a whirlwind month of performing at the Super Bowl and the Grammy Awards.

"I'm good, I'm just glad to be back," Hudson told Winfrey in a short interview before performing her new single "If This Isn't Love."

Hudson didn't discuss the October killings of her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew.

Hudson embarks this month on a tour across the country with Robin Thicke.

Jennifer Hudson's big month comes to a close later this week with a performance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

On Friday, Hudson will be with O to perform her latest single, "If This Isn't Love."

Hudson began February with an acclaimed performance of the national anthem at the Super Bowl, followed by another heralded performance at the Grammys -- where she also took the trophy for best R&B album for her self-titled debut.

No word on whether she'll actually be sitting down to chat with Oprah, but we wouldn't bet against it.

Winfrey's "Best Life Week" series -- which was promoted on all of the talk show host's platforms and kicked off by a personal essay in "O" magazine with her talking about weight-gain disappointment -- helped blast single-copy magazine sales to its best ever.

According to a report, the magazine -- with Winfrey appearing on the cover with a before and after image of her body -- was the best-selling in magazine history with over 1.1 million copies sold.
