Jennifer Hudson “Sings” At Sporting Event

There was some kind of game tonight. Lots of guys in crimson and goldenrod blouses running around in pedal pushers. Anyway, Jennifer Hudson came out of her tragedy-spawned seclusion to deliver a stunning example of lip-syncing. Yo-Yo Ma was seen miming wild applause from his sky box. I love J-Hud, live or not, and thought her version was one of the best I’ve heard.

UPDATE: Drudge Report is pointing everybody to this quote from the show’s producer, Rickey Minor:

Although entertainers can perform live, Minor insisted that Hudson and Faith Hill, who sang “America the Beautiful” before the national anthem, use the tracks the NFL requires them to submit a week before the game. “That’s the right way to do it,” Minor said. “There’s too many variables to go live. I would never recommend any artist go live because the slightest glitch would devastate the performance.”
