The 2010 NCAA Tournament left me feeling confused and wanting more. So maybe it’s fitting that CBS replaced Luther Vandross with Jennifer Hudson, who screamed her way through the tournament’s signature song, forcing me to hit the mute button.
The real tragedy of Hudson’s performance is that it could mark the last time CBS ever airs the song. The NCAA is likely to opt-out of its TV deal with CBS, opening the door for ESPN to swoop in and grab coverage of what will be a bizarre 96 team tournament.
The NCAA Tournament on ESPN–now that would be annoying.
