I’m still pissed I didn’t see Idol winner Fantasia Barrino in The Color Purple (presented by Oprah), because I know by this video that she must have been completely awesome.
But is her National Anthem awesomer than former American Idol rival Jennifer Hudson? Though both ladies are fairly blatantly channeling Whitney (more on that later), I think they both turn in performances worthy of all those dead Presidents we were honoring yesterday.
So who wins this one? Is Fantasia still America’s favorite singer?
