Slightly OT - "One Shining Moment"

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?
