JLS still have the top-selling single in the UK, with their track Beat Again staying number one for a second week.
But the X Factor finalists were almost knocked from the top spot by Mr Hudson, whose song Supernova entered the charts at number two.
He didn't do it all on his own though, as American rapper Kanye West features on the single too.
Michael Jackson's chart success seems to be fading, as his single Man in the Mirror dropped out of the top 10.
And after having four singles in the top 40 seven days ago, only two Michael Jackson tracks remain inside the top 40.
However Jackson's The Essential greatest hits album is number one for the fourth week in a row.
In total nine albums by Michael Jackson are in the top 40.
