Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has not belted out a tune since the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and nephew in late October last year. Hudson fans around the world got excited when the New York Post reported that the “Idol” star was set to sing the “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the inauguration ceremony next week. However, her rep told “Access Hollywood,” “there is no truth to this.” We wonder which star or singing sensation will take her place instead. —QS
