Love it or Hate it? Jennifer Hudson Covers Aretha Franklin's RESPECT

I think the world knows I'm a huge fan of Aretha's and I'm also a huge fan of Jennifer Hudson. Here is Jennifer Hudson performing a little bit of James Brown's "It's A Man's World" and then she goes into a full version of the legendary Queen of Soul's Respect.

I personally would have loved to hear her cover fully James Brown's "It's A Man's World". She just doesn't handle Respect like you would expect her to do. She damn near trips over some of the words. After Aretha Franklin put her spin on the Otis Redding written song, nobody should ever touch it again. This performance proves that not even powerhouse belter Jennifer Hudson can handle it. This isn't a terrible performance but if I had to pick.....I would have to say I HATE IT

Side Note: Jennifer looks great!
