I thought it was well done as far as the arrangement, piano, and great voice. Still, I found myself wishing she would hurry it up. Way too slow.

The choices in this poll suck. She did a good job. The people who do well with that song start at a lower register. The people who f it up usually stay too high.


Sge did a good job but not top three all time

Overall she did a good job. It was a little slow for my liking, and didnt care for the little ad-libs at the end.

It was decent. She missed a couple of notes, but she not only sung but provided her own piano accompaniment. Few artists would do that.

It wasn't Whitney Houston, but then it wasn't lipsinked either.

It was live, self accompanied, and good enough.

What I'd like to know is why Jennifer Hudson seemed so sullen...

They need to stop releasing the commercials three weeks prior to the SB. It takes all the gas out of them.

I wanted to know why they even needed Jennifer Hudson. The Sandy Hook kids did a pretty good job by themselves but obviously they felt they needed someone famous to stand in front of them and sing the same thing again, and then make the kids behind her do some goofy back-and-forth dance.
