I don't think I hate Hudson's voice, I just hate that she is on Bat III at all. Just another guest gimmick in a vain effort to sell more records. Anyway "Future" would work much better if it were just Meat singing, but whatever.

I guess her voice is good enough, and she is so hot right now with "Dreamgirls" and everything, and losing like 40 pounds, her record will probably do well, and I'm sure she could do "Safe Sex" justice and earn Jim some cash and deserved recognition.

Then again, I don't know how much Jim really wants to put one dime in Clive Davis' pocket after the "Bat" audition.
