Beyoncé Inaugural Lip Synch Scandal! Now They're Backpedaling!

| Filed under: PolitikBeyonceBarack Obama

Did she or didn't she??

It was reportedly confirmed that Beyonce did indeed lip synch the national anthem at Obama's inauguration on Monday.

But now it seems like someone's in MAJOR trouble as the Marine Corps have backed off their previous statement which notified the nation of Bey's supposed pre-recorded voice track.

Spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf says:

"Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter's vocal performance, no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded."

Master Sgt. Kristin duBois, the one who originally said the band was notified that Bey would use the pre-recorded track, has declined to answer further questions.

Apparently Bey had the track as a back-up since she couldn't have a proper rehearsal with the band, but now it seems it may have been a real-live performance after all!

Maybe… Bey's reps have their mouths closed at the moment.

What do U think??

    I don't think it's- big deal if she lip synched or not. Some people lip synch, maybe she was nervous. Or wanted it perfect. Or maybe she did sing it live. It was a good day is the main thing.

    Btw I think I saw a racist comment here? You're sick.

    Well if the US Marine Band Public Relation Chief and Master Sergeant is not qualified to assess whether it was live or not then I don't know who is!

    I just realized–this site is a culturally constituted defense mechanism! At last I figured it out. People can come here and say nasty/vile/sick thing–Perez can too. Is for the better good of society because sickos have a place to vent their hate

    I think it's ok if Beyonce lip synched, if its true she did. Maybe it was for technical reasons, or she was nervous or she wanted it to be perfect. It's ok.

    IGuess whitney Houston isn't talented and is a phony being that shit lip synced that national anthem in '81 at Super Bowl….

    We all know Obama gave this wannabe a ticket to perform for her hubby's generous million dollar donation. That talentless booty shaking baby buying buffoon couldn't sing in front of a crowd. Let alone conquer the national anthem.

    Please somebody make this eyesore of a female go away before she steals another thought or idea from someone truly talented!

    Of course she didn't lip synch!! She's never lip synched throughout her whole career, why would she start now. You can literally see her vibrato.

    Bulllshitttt. if you listen to her "live recording" you can hear her "oh" a little bit behind the backing track. Like she started out singing and then lip-synched. Also you can hear the backing track in the background.

    Re: michael lohan – She's not so dark anymore. She;s another of the black "pop stars" who hate their own race so much they straighten their hair and like m. jackson get whiter by the day.

    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…who put pressure on the Marine Corps spokesperson to make him change his statement? People around her said she did lip synch so why deny it?

    She didn't lip sync. The audio is rigged with the stadium sound and that's why there's some lag from the mic to the video. It was just a huge venue

    Sorry I did not watch the inauguration, first term was enough for me, now I have to suffer for 4 more years of this guy, hey, raise my Social Security a bit, OK? I get $1201 and my rent is $850. And by the way, that is a cheap rent for the LA area, especially for a security building with an elevator - they provide water, trash and gas but the only gas in my apartment is the stove, everything else is electric.

    I THINK SHE just doesnt know the words is why she has to lip sync

    If you can really sing, why lip sync? Seems like the way to go with the singers of now-a-days - all computer generated - anyone can be a singer if they have the right backing - look at the housewives series - all it takes is a computer.

    Everyone who sings at a mega event like this where the acoustics are questionable and technology can be flukey has what is called a "safety track". Whitney Houston used one when she sang her famous version of the National Anthem! Paul McCartney's wound up screwing him up at the Olympics! And if you're seeing your fav superstar live? Well on some nights when they're not feeling all that great they're lip synching to their safety track! Better than losing money and canceling the gig or going out and sounding like crap. Very common to have them. Which always made me wonder why Whitney didn't have safety tracks on her flop European tour.

    She's overated and so fake. She has no shame, how can you promote hair color if you're wearing a wig?

    Should have had Mother Monster up there. She would have slayed and wouldn't have lip-synced. Oh well, that's what you get when you go 2nd rate.

    Christina did a better job.

    I think someone got busted for spilling the beans. If it was false it wouldn't take this long to dispel it. He also didn't deny it but just said they aren't supposed to officially say either way. This makes team Beyonce look worse since someone is obviously putting the pressure on them to back off.

    She did not lip-sync. She was wearing in-ears! Can't you see her take them out? You wear in-ears when you're performing and singing live. So obvious.
