    "One Shining Moment" No Longer sung by Vandross

    I think it's a little lame but I also think it's a great tradition... really sucks to see them changing it to Jennifer Hudson.

    Jennifer Hudson will be new voice of 'One Shining Moment' - NCAA Basketball - SI.com

    that was a DISASTER by Hudson. Since when do we need shots of the singer? UGH. It was a half-*** performance at best too. Bring back Luther.

    Totally embarassing. Who on earth thought of this idea? CBS is trying to ruin the tourney with their horrible coverage, bastardizing one shining moment, and don't get me even started on Clark Kellog. Good thing tourney is so awesome not even CBS can ruin it.

    I was not impressed, it really lacked the "moving"-ness that it provided in years past...

    Thoughts on "One Shining Moment" from last night?

    I referenced it earlier today in a different thread, but it seems like no one liked Jennifer Hudson's rendition of "One Shining Moment" last night.

    I don't have many issues with her vocal performance or how she sang it, but I do have to wonder why they felt the need to show her face five different times during the song. They left out teams like Ohio beating Georgetown and Evan Turner, only the freakin' National Player of the Year so they could show her. Why?

    Here's an interesting link to the controversy, as well as her version on a YouTube video...

    Just awful. The highlight is supposed to be on the players and the moments of the greatest tournament in sports.. not her putting her own spin with extended notes and solos to show what a great singer she is.

    that and Clark Kellogg.. and CBS somehow delivered a crap performance on one of the best games of all time.

    I'm still mad CBS didn't have Gus call the championship game.. I just wanted to hear him yell during the last second, half court shot.

    It still shocks me that people actually care so much about this.

    Why does it shock you? When done well (which it wasn't Monday night), it's a perfectly done ending to what is IMO the best sporting event in America (at least until they go to 96 teams). It captures all the highs and lows of the tournament, and it's fun to see all the big shots get replayed.

    The only thing that saved it from being a complete trainwreck for me was being able to see UNI again for a few seconds. Hopefully CBS will see the error of their ways and focus more on basketball instead of Jennifer Hudson's dome next season.

    I said it earlier, and maybe I'm off. But, I think the reason for the new rendition and extended notes is two-fold. They are trying to make the song longer, so they can add more highlights, and it's hard to have Luther extend his version from the grave. I really didn't hate the version, but I did not need to see her at all during the highlights. In my defense (?), I didn't really get to see much of the tourney, so most of the highlights were good/new to me...


    In Fred, we trust!! Go Cyclones!

    The other issue is that there was a ton of teams missing from the highlights... the most glaring omission being the Xavier K-State game.

    See, this is why they should have had 2pac do one shining moment to begin with. he's had what, 10 cds come out since he died? would have been easy to extend his version from the grave

    Re: "One Shining Moment" No Longer sung by Vandross

    A few years ago on American Idol some chick remade Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue. It was horrible.
    Does anyone else feel like the NCAA and CBS is hellbent on ruining the greatest tourny on earth?
    It's about the players. No need to show Jennifer Hudson (Who is a great singer) during the montage. None. Show the players and the great plays and the blood sweat and tears.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Yes i agree they completely ruined one shinning moment. It was classic with Vandross and it really showcased the players, now it just seemed like a music video for Jennifer Hudson. Lame.
