Super Bowl pre-game show producer Rickey Minor admits that Jennifer Hudson and Faith Hill Lip-Synched:
Minor explained that he insisted that both Hudson and Faith Hill, who performed “America the Beautiful” before Hudson, sing to the prerecorded tracks the NFL requires them to submit a week before the game.
“That’s the right way to do it,” Minor said. “There’s too many variables to go live. I would never recommend any artist go live, because the slightest glitch would devastate the performance.”
What a crock of shit. Why even bother trotting the singers out there then? Wouldn’t a nice video montage of soldiers and nurses and cops and teachers make for even better television?
