A newly-slender Jennifer Hudson is endorsing more than Weight Watchers these days. The Oscar winner is also lending her powerhouse vocals to "One Shining Moment," a mainstay song of the NCAA Championships.

Hudson's rendition of "One Shining Moment" premiered in full on Monday night (Apr. 5) at CBS' broadcast of college basketball's Final Four Championship game, where the Butler Blue Dogs came just short of defeating the Duke Blue Devils. (Final score: a nailbiting 61-59).

Luther Vandross' recording of the Harvey Mason-produced tune has been used for the NCAA championships for the past six years. Before him, it was performed by Teddy Pendergrass, and prior to that it was sung by David Barrett, who also wrote the track.

Does Jennifer Hudson's "One Shining Moment" live up to its predecessors? Let us know in the comments.
