Hudson Delivers on Anthem

The reviews are in on big-voiced Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson's pre-Super Bowl performance of the national anthem, and they're raves. In her first appearance since an estranged relative killed three of her family members, Hudson wore a military-inspired black jacket with gold hoop earrings to belt out the traditional pre-game song. The Chicago Sun-Times wrote that Hudson, a native of the Windy City, gave "a bravura performance" and "seemed to put all her pent-up feelings into her performance."
