Jennifer Hudson: Superbowl Comeback!

Jennifer Hudson will be making her comeback performance at next month’s Super Bowl, reports E!‘s Marc Malkin.

The 27-year-old American Idol alum is slated to sing the national anthem on Feb. 1 in Tampa, Fla.

This will be the first public appearance by Jennifer since the brutal murders of her mother Darnell Donerson, brother Jason and young nephew Julian King. William Balfour, the estranged brother-in-law of Jennifer, has been indicted on all three counts of murder.

    It’s only 10 days after the inauguration, and she said she wasn’t prepared to do that.
    If she sang the anthem at the Superbowl I think that would be incredible but I feel it’s still too soon. I would not be surprised if this turned out to be false.

    Jen should know how she feels and when she is mentally prepared to face this cruel world, especially right here in America.

    Have you ever thought maybe she didn’t want to participate in the Inauguration?

    There are a lot of celebrities just looking for the spotlight.

    I can respect Jennifer for “passing” on the event. She already performed at the DNC.
