A look back at recent "One Shining Moment" montages

Every year, I have a running joke in the office on the Monday night of the national championship game.

It doesn't matter what else is going on - everything stops so I can watch "One Shining Moment" for three minutes.

CBS' annual tribute to the NCAA tournament is a divisive topic - some people absolutely love it, some people absolutely despise it. I'm in the former category and have been for as long as I can remember.

First off, a couple ground rules if you don't mind, CBS: Keep the Luther Vandross version - it's the best one. Remember 2010 and the reaction to the Jennifer Hudson version - it did not go well because it became more about, "Hey, look, we got Jennifer Hudson to do this," than being a celebration of the tournament as it should be.

With that established, here is my gift to you, fellow "One Shining Moment" enthusiasts. Every Luther Vandross "One Shining Moment" montage since his version of the song took over in 2003.

Enjoy ...
