Jennifer Hudson Sings the Super Bowl

Jennifer Hudson and Faith Hill bring their A-game as they perform at Super Bowl XLIII between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Sunday (February 1).

Jennifer, 27, sang the U.S. National Anthem and Faith, 41, sang “America the Beautiful” during the pre-game show. This was the first public appearance for the Oscar winner since the murders of her mother (Darnell Donerson), brother (Jason Hudson) and nephew (Julian King).

    I’m watched the Super Bowl to see Jennifer Hudson and I was not disappointed. The music was pre-recorded but Jennifer sang live. Her voice has gotten better since her A.I. days.

    hello Says:

    These performances are usually pre-recorded. So, they are lip synching. So is Yo Yo Ma & company, Aretha Franklin on election day.
    Too big an occasion to go wrong.

    She was fantastic. One of the best voices of our day. She’s the new Aretha Franklin. God Bless you Jennifer. We love you.

    Cantstandit Says:

    Jennifer Hudson’s rendition of our national anthem was the absolute worst I have ever heard. Even worse than Aretha Franklin’s My Country ‘Tis Of Thee and that sucked horribly.

    Why is it performers can’t just sing the song the way it was intended and not put their worthless BS twist on it? You didn’t see Bruce Springsteen butchering any songs the way she did.
