Michael Jackson Tribute Concert

Jennifer Hudson Left Us

In the Lurch!

Jennifer Hudson's no-show at the Michael Jackson tribute concert yesterday caught the show's producers completely off-guard ... especially since she was already paid to do the gig ... this according to sources close to the show.

JHud tweeted Saturday afternoon she wouldn't be doing the show -- citing "major production issues."

According to our sources, Hudson is claiming she felt the show's producers didn’t give her enough time with the music she was supposed to be singing. According to our sources, Jennifer received her music the same time as all the performers.

Our sources say JHud signed her contract and was paid in full.

A rep for Hudson confirms the reason she cancelled, but says producers "completely understood." Our sources say that's not the case at all.

Do you no who I feel sorry for is you Shady Lady, for being so quick to pass jugdement on Micheal. Don't you realize that his children can read and here these nasty rumors. So you don't feel sorry for his children. And by the way David admitted that he lied on Jackson because his father tolds him to so that they would have money. Janet and a few other family members were against this concert also. So look into the facts before passing judgement. And by the way Shady Lady with small letters, your the name fits you!

Beyonce wasn't there to arrange her vocals for her like she did during the filming of Dreamgirls.
