Did She or Didn't She? Who Cares!

Jennifer Hudson sang to a pre-recorded track at last Sunday's Super Bowl. So what? Why has this turned into some sort of scandal that has been all over the internet for the last few days?

Both Hudson and Faith Hill sung to track on the advise of the show's producer, Rick Minor. He told The AP: "That's the right way to do it. There's too many variables to go live. I would never recommend any artist go live, because the slightest glitch would devastate the performance."

This was Jennifer's first public performance since the deaths of her mother, brother and nephew last year but I am quite sure this add nothing to do with her choosing to lip sync. It had more to do with the "Janet Jackson" rule then anything else. Remember that whole thing? Well so does the National Football League. Most likely everything is pre-recorded now for the Super Bowl from a musical standpoint and for good reason. Nobody wants to be on watch when another "super mishap" happens. Jordin Sparks lip sync the anthem last year, quite poorly if I may add and surely many more before her. The days of a "Whitney" style anthem are gone however this performance will rank up there rather Jennifer sang live or not.
