Jennifer Hudson and Sandy Hook Chorus perform “America the Beautiful”, video below. Jennifer Hudson was joined by the Sandy Hook Chorus during her performance at Super Bowl 47 on Sunday. The choir features 26 students from the Newtown, Connecticut school, where 20 first-graders and six adults were horrifically killed on December 14.

The group’s moving rendition of “America the Beautiful” came less than two months after the tragedy. Wearing white shirts, khaki pants, and the green ribbons that have become synonymous with awareness of the tragedy that befell the school, the mixed boy-girl choir began the song for the first verse until Hudson joined them at the 50 yard line.

The Who Super Bowl Halftime Show Foreshadows New Orleans Win

The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey, lead guitarist Peter Townsend and the rest of the band rocked the Super Bowl XLIV halftime show, an apt foreshadowing of the Saints victory over the Colts.

The New Orleans Saints slammed to a win in Super Bowl XLIV after a rousing comeback in the second half of the game. Despite being 10 down, the Saints blew the Colts out of the water to take the team’s first Super Bowl win. We thought it was kind of a karmic foreshadowing with The Who was announced as the lead halftime performers. Who Dat? The Who that’s who!

As always, we’re always curious how the halftime entertainment will come off, especially since that whole Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake fiasco a while back. This year we needed no ‘nip slip’ to spice up the halftime show. The Who rocked it out hard, despite the fact that half the band looked like a bunch of nursing home escapees crashing the Super Bowl stage with stolen guitars.

Check out some of the fabulous video of The Who at the Super Bowl halftime show below. And congrats to the Saints for a blow-out victory. New Orleans is partying hard tonight!
