Well to be completely fair, I am a huge fan of American Idol. I watch it every week and give my opinions on the week's performances. I wasn't a huge fan of Jennifer Hudson when she competed, but I knew she could sing.
Still, I was a bit disappointed when I heard Hudson was chosen to record a new version of "One Shining Moment" for the tournament. I actually like the Luther Vandross version, probably due to excellent editing of highlights such as the following:
Jennifer Hudson's version:
I prefer Luther's version - it's understated and allows the performances of the players to shine through. Hudson really started to shriek as the song went along. Second, I'm peeved that CBS had that many cut-ins to Hudson singing the song - I'm sorry, she's being used for her voice, this video package should solely be about the players.
What did you think of the latest reboot to the cheesiest championship song ever?
