There's nothing like a power ballad to push yourself through a strenuous workout.

Kate Hudson found hers as she mustered every remaining ounce of willpower to push herself past her limits during a Pilates session.

And that girl can belt!

What better song than Lady Gaga's "Shallow" from A Star is Born to wail her way through the private workout session with personal trainer Nicole Stuart?


The Mother's Day actress posted the video of her a cappella war cry and captioned it with "Gearing up for my in-living room Oscar performance."

She tagged the tune's co-writers — Gaga and Mark Ronson — and apologized for screwing up the lyrics.

While Stuart did her best to coach her way through Hudson's intermittent screlting, she finally admitted defeat as Hudson was determined to reach for that top note.

"This is impossible," laughed Stuart.

"I think I hit the note," Hudson said, hoping for a validation.

But Stuart, ever the professional, laid down the law and set her priorities.

"Why don't you hit the proper form, and then hit the note."

As far as we're concerned, she nailed that workout.

Many people were surprised by the actress's capabilities — both at Pilates and at singing "Shallow." Fans suggested she should do musicals or be featured in a movie showcasing her hidden talents.

But they may have forgotten Hudson dazzled audiences with her singing and dancing before in the 2009 movie musical Nine directed by Rob Marshall.

She absolutely slayed it!

On October 2, the 39-year-old announced the birth of her first daughter together with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa and named her Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa.

This is Hudson's third child. She is a mom to 7-year-old son Bingham Hawn, with her ex-fiancé, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy; and to 14-year-old son Ryder Russell with her first husband Chris Robinson from the band, The Black Crowes.

Mom is looking great and she sounds amazing. She definitely sent us off the deep end with that impromptu performance.
