While Christina Aguilera made like The King of Pop at the Michael Forever tribute concert in Cardiff, Wales last night, former American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson did not attend the event - and her absence is raising a few questions this morning.
According to a Hudson Tweet on Saturday afternoon, she said "major production issues" would prevent her from performing, while a rep for the artist tells TMZ producers were made aware ahead of time and "completely understood."
However, other sources tell the site the complete opposite. They claim Hudson shocked organizers by her no-show and, to make matters worse/more controversial, she was paid in full ahead of time for the gig.
Those who did play a role in the tribute, meanwhile, included Ne-Yo, LaToya Jackson, Leona Lewis, Cee Lo Green, Gladys Knight, Beyonce (via satellite) and Jamie Foxx, who served as host.
