Came here to cleanse my ears after Fergie disrespected every US citizen lol.

I know Whitney is the crowd favorite....but this one was sang on a higher note and she just killed it! I think it's right up there with Whitney's version.... if not better. Doesn't mean she's necessarily a better overall singer than Whitney but let's call a spade a spade. She was outstanding!
Christina Schimp
Only my black woman sing the NA like they were in church and their life and salvation depended on😂😂🤣🤗
Dontele Francis
Dont care what no one says JHud is the 2nd generation Whitney Houston such a powerful voice!!!!!! So sad she is underrated tho!!!!!!
M Julie Kaur
After Whitney this has to be the only one that comes close...unbelieveable!
Her first public performance after her mother's, sister, nephew dead. She kill it.
Dimi G

bubblegum baby

An Absolute Bossanova
Only fergie could top this
Dandreb Salangsang
J. Hudson made the national anthem a breakup song. lol
Niisa Menefield
I don’t care what NOBODY say!! She sang this!!! The best National Anthem performance even above Whitney Houston!!
Mystical Hippo
Fergie: can I copy u Jhud: yeah just make it a lil different so they don’t notice Fergie: different you say?
Olivia Love
I don't know why they call Beyonce Queen when this one kills her! You killed it Jennifer! ❤
Hey, Whatever.
Tbh this is the best soulful national anthem I’ve heard.
This has too be one of the best National Anthem performances i've heard!
I watched Beyoncé and I was like, yes she is going on top with Whitney houston. Then I saw this words
Daniela Romer Perez
Omg, why are people placing Beyoncé and Whitney on the top? This is the best version. Period.
Andraž Kržič
much better than Beyonce
Ryan Tackett
Jenifer has such a powerhouse voice and she killed it
Weyland-Yutani Corporation
The best national anthem ever performed.
Renzairo Airp
1st- Whitney' Version 2nd- Mariah 3rd- Hudson
Bossy Tweed
Closest to Whitney’s perfection. Since we don’t have Whitney anymore to bless our eardrums with her vocals of the anthem let’s just give the job to Jennifer and let it be. I’ve been rewatching this and Whitney’s performance to clean out my ears after that Fergie bullshit!
Anaya moon-holmes
Fergie take notes
George Tarrega
Damn those belts are so powerful, her runs were so good and not overdone, her transition of chest voice to falsetto at the end was so so so good. This is better than beyonce's rendition.
Whoa!!! I think I commented once already but this is a bit better than Beyoncé’s performance and that’s saying something ‘cause hers was my favorite of all time. J HUD just has the bigger voice! Straight fire. 🔥🔥🔥
Renata Monteiro
Since Whitney, this was the best ❤️
Jane Whitfield
Such a huge talent ..I'm British and its the best performance and arrangement I've ever are one fantastic lady Jennifer Hudson
Marcos T
Fergie take notes, this is how you sing a National Anthem

But, Whitney Houston is #1!
Just swinging through here after hearing Fergie's anthem..

Carline Exantus
I came here after watching Fegie
Wow now this is a follow up after Whitney's Amazing voice. She wore the Hell out of that mic Jennifer Hudson ❤👌👍👍👍
krysta Anthony
I'm a heavy critic lol. This is truly. by far the most superb performance of the National Anthem EVER. She deserves great respect and then some great respect and a half. She made Whitney Houston proud to the T.

I've been listening to this version of her singing this song for years now and it still gives me chills every time I hear Jennifer's beautiful rendition of this song!!!
감성 태라 太儸Tera
just amazing anazing what more can I say?
Demetrius Bewley
This was her first performance after the tragic deaths of her LOVE ones.... #BLESSED J-HUD I REMEMBER THIS DAY & that horrible day 🙏.
It doesn't even phase her. Comes natural.
Mark Hudson
Fergie got me here!! JHUD what a master class on how it should be done.
she actually hit the highest chest notes out of all the singers! I would stop complaining and just appreciate spectacular talent.
It's SO good it's hard to believe is real. Damn.
Romero Malone
Top 3 Best National Anthem Renditions 1.) Whitney Houston 2.) Jennifer Hudson 3.) Beyoncé
Gregory Michaels
My 2nd favorite performance of the National Anthem of all time...but nothing beats Whitney's 1991 performance of the National Anthem. That's the best version ever done and probably no one will ever sing it as well ever again. The fact JHud's version is super close is amazing.
That’s one of the most amazing national anthem covers I’ve ever seen. I saw Metallica, Joey Belladonna, Luther Vandross and even Whitney Houston and they are all fantastic. These performances are way better than Fergie did
amazonjungle z
Fergie can learn a thing or two from Jennifer.
Irene Cara
This is how it's done! Perfection!
Dakeem Esdaille
Just Wow! Absolutely Incredible
Another great rendition of this song!
I may be very alone in this (I don't mind); this is the best rendition of the National Anthem.
Carolyn Feldman
Wow!!! Always loved her since American Idol. She sang this UNBELIEvABLE and made it her own! Never heard this because I'm always listening to Whitney's version. I have to admit. I really liked this a lot.
Jerusha Dowdy
Jesus christ that voice is really powerful 😇
Todd Dillon
Jennifer Hudson another great singer along with Whitney singing in Tampa again Tampa is just a blessed city thank you God for making Tampa so blessed. there's just something in the air down there.
Chicken Little
Fergie secretly sucked on purpose to get us all back into the national anthem.
Krystle Martin
She is a close second to Whitney, in my opinion. And she def did better than Gaga!
Frederick Garceau
This was SO powerful and flawless. She is so talented it’s just crazy
Jennifer Hudson make singing look so easy. Such a beautiful voice!
jim F
That was awesome! Thank you Jennifer Hudson!!!
Qaulan Maruf
I just thought I needed to cleanse my ears after hearing Fergie’s performance.... no offense
Right next to Whitney
Patricia Waters

thuytrinh nguyen

Kimberley Flava
Mis Houston was the best baby........
JESUS FREAKIN CHRIST that was amazing!!! Probably the best living singer (I mean vocally before anyone gets mad)
Natalie Bowen
I said Whitney was the best but I change my mind dan jennifer
Sherry Dalton
She is absolutely amazing! For me, this is 2nd only to Whitney Houston’s rendition.
Dayumn, dem pipes (J Hud slayed). To sing with such power - at such range - with very little room to breath at the end is incredible.
Anna Crane
Truly the best ever sang as of 2017
Harry Patton
After you reach a certain level of excellence (Whitney, Jennifer, etc), there is no point of debating which version is the best. However, I must admit that I really feel the anointing in this rendition!
KellyAnn Dean
Rodney Walker
You know she can “sang” when she made you feel U were in church. Wow!! I’m a singer and this is “hands down” the best rendition ever. I would have shouted!! So much power and soul comin’ up from within inside of her. Sing Sis!!
I am a 911 veteran! Who in God's name gave this performance a thumbs down? I love it. So passionate and sultry! I got chills. God Bless this country... God bless America!
That’s the first time anyone got the Holy Ghost from the national anthem
Jala J
them dudes trying not to cry! XD
Mel B
miling cezard
Funny that only African Americans CAN sing the hell out of the National Anthem the way it supposed to be sang smh. But yet we are not allowed to take a knee.
Rubie Mendosa
Jennifer, Ariana, Alicia Keys. ..are the best.who is agree.
Walking Trails 777
Um oh my gosh! She's so underrated! Amazing a close 2nd to Whitney Houston! Everyone else , a distant 3rd!
Mar Zea
I'm on a National Anthem binge watching session right now. I just watched Lady Gaga's version, Whitney's and J. Hudson. Now off to Micheal Jackson, Beyonce, and, I might even throw in Janet + Justin for s**ts and giggles. :]
Nats Fan For Life
I'm gonna be straight up. I ain't never really cared for Jennifer Hudson. But holy heck, she's the only one I have ever seen in my 30 years to come anywhere close to when Whitney Houston did it. Jennifer did a great job, hats off to her.
