Jennifer Hudson Gives Rousing Super Bowl Performance With Sandy Hook Kids

How she managed to get through the whole of America The Beautiful without tearing up, we'll never know. But Jennifer Hudson put in a stellar performance as she belted out the tune along with a choir from the Sandy Hook elementary school.

Jennifer was the first singer to take to the stadium, kicking off what was to be a fantastic night of singing and style (never mind the football, eh?), paving the way for Beyoncé and Destiny's child to totally smash it at half-time.

J Hud showed off her fantastic figure in a leather roll-neck top teamed with a button-detail white pencil skirt and ankle-strap stilettos. But she could have been wearing a sack and we'd still be singing her praises...
