Default Faith Hill and Jennifer Hudson lip-synced at Super Bowl.

http://leisureblogs.chicagotribune.c...wl-anthem.html

ennifer Hudson used a backing track for her dramatic version of “The Star Spangled Banner” Sunday at the Super Bowl, the pre-game show’s producer says.

Ricky Minor, the producer, told the Associated Press after the performance that he insisted that Hudson use the vocal track she submitted to the NFL a week before the game instead of singing live.

“That’s the right way to do it,” Minor said. “There … [are] too many variables to go live. I would never recommend any artist go live because the slightest glitch would devastate the performance.”

Representatives for Hudson and the NFL did not respond to email and voice-mail messages requesting comment. But it is typical of performers at big stadium events to use backing tracks. Artists from U2 to Madonna make extensive use of pre-recorded music at their concerts. And most Super Bowl renditions of the national anthem, as well as numerous halftime performances, have been lip-synched.

What’s unclear is if Hudson sang along with the backing track, or simply lip-synched. Her breathing patterns, including a couple of audible sighs, indicate that she may have been singing, but it’s difficult to prove.

Minor also told the Associated Press that Faith Hill, who preceded Hudson with a performance of “America the Beautiful,” used a backing track.

Should the NFL have come clean with viewers about whether they were seeing a live performance before the singers put microphones to their lips?

i hope people realize that ALL super bowl performances have been lip-synched for the past 15 years or so. whitney houston lip-sang too. the acoustics of huge stadiums like that make songs like that almost impossible to not lip-synch. its not a big deal and its pretty common knowledge.

It just shows that it's all a big fraud. That's all it is. It's not a "live" performance no matter how you slice it so they need to stop saying it is.

Superbowl anthems has always been pre recorded. Like somebody said already Whitney's anthem was also lip synched.

Some thing to know when you bet the prop. I think line was at 2 min this year. Song lasted 2min 10 sec.

I thought it was pretty obvious that Hudson lip-synced. Her manerisms and facial expressions whilst singing were so plain and boring showed that it was pretty obvious from the moment she put the mic to her lips that she wasn't really singing. Faith Hill, alteast put some effort in to make it look like she really sang.

If something can't be pulled off it just can't. But it's f*ckin lame to pull out all this equipment and stuff to put on a fake show. It's just dumb. They shouldn't pretend do to these things if they can't do them.
