Beyonce was actually lip-syncing the National Anthem.
Kelly Clarkson Sings LIVE, While Beyonce Caught Lip Syncing At The Presidential Inauguration! (VIDEO)
During the performance, Beyonce blew the crowd away.... ripping out her earpiece in an effort to seem as if she was having audio problems while singing live.... Then finishing with a flaw-less performance.
So after the beans were spilled that she lip-synced, some people felt tricked....and others stood up for the singer.
A slew of entertainers came to her rescue. J-Lo said,
“Sometimes it happens when you are in certain stadiums and certain venues and things, they do pre-record stuff because you're going to have that terrible slapback.”In true Beyonce fashion, once the news spread, her team was quick to backtrack and say she DID actually sing. But in reality, she didn't.
The band was not even playing while Beyonce was singing, but it was live during the rest of the performances, including Kelly Clarkson's rendition of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." The band was asked not to play for only the national anthem.
So in your opinion, was Beyonce wrong for not singing the Nation Anthem live?... Or is it more about her tricking people into thinking she was?... OR since we know she can sing, who really cares if it was live or not?!
We should also remind you, one of the best National Anthem performances of all time, from the late Whitney Houston, was also lip-synced!
Beyonce fired back later during the week, posting this photo, wearing a shirt that says...
"Can I live?"
Looks like she's trying to tell the world something.
But now lots of people are questioning if Beyonce will be lip-syncing her performance at Super Bowl 2013, which she is scheduled to perform at this year... possibly even reuniting with her group Destiny's Child.
The pressure's on B!
