Crickets are pretty hard to feed a hedgehog live. Generally the hedgehog can't or won't watch them, in my experience. But I have put them in the bath tub with a couple live crickets to let them catch them. But yeah, for crickets, they are easiest fed dead.

Just want to add, you don't need to put any calcium powder or anything on the insects.
