Super Bowl director insisted Jennifer Hudson lip-synch performance


UPI News Service, 02/03/2009 

The producer of this week's Super Bowl show in Tampa, Fla., said Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson lip-synced "The Star-Spangled Banner" before the game.

Sunday's game marked Hudson's first public performance since her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew were shot and killed in Chicago last October.

"This was such an important performance, because it's the first time everyone has seen Jennifer," the show's producer, Ricky Minor, told Us Weekly. "But she's in such a great place, with such great spirits and time can heal her wounds. She's on fire right now and totally grounded."

Minor said it was he who insisted Hudson sing to a track she prerecorded at the event.

"That's the right way to do it," Minor told the magazine. "There's too many variables to go live. I would never recommend any artist go live, because the slightest glitch would devastate the performance."
