Jennifer Hudson's National Anthem
Super Bowl 43 is now history, and while it was one of the best games in Super Bowl history (especially the fourth quarter), the best performance on the field may have occurred before the ball was even kicked off. Jennifer Hudson's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner was just breathtaking. I mean, she KILLED IT! (That's a good thing). I had goose bumps, and my eyes even welled up. I haven't heard our national anthem sound that amazing since Whitney Houston sang it in 1991.
Even though Santonio Holmes won the game with his amazing catch, Hudson's performance may have been the best moment of the game, and I think it will go down as one of the most memorable in SSB history, alongside Houston's and Marvin Gaye's 1983 NBA All Star game performance.
