Beyoncé Fooled America & LIP SYNCHED National Anthem!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteOops!BeyonceBarack ObamaJAY-Z

So wait… what was all that ear piece business about Beyoncé!?!!

Lady Bey STUNNED America with her flawless rendition of the Star Spangled Banner during President Obama 's inauguration Monday…

But it seems Jay-Z's wife wasn't being 100% honest up on that podium, as she apprently LIP SYNCHED her entire performance using a previous recording of herself singing the tune!

And yes, it is normal for musicians to pre-record something for SUCH a momentous televised occasion, but isn't it kind of a shame that she acted as if she were singing in real time?!

Why the pageantry?!

Kristin DuBois, a rep for the United States Marine Band who backed Mz Bey, explains:

"All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day. We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why."

Part of the reason Beyoncé was hesitant to belt out our National Anthem live could be because she barely had any time to rehearse the iconic song with the Marine Band, thus we kinda understand her actions.

It was like an insurance policy!

But we still feel so CHEATED!

We just hope she doesn't pull such shenanigans at her HIGHLY publicized Super Bowl halftime show! We're looking forward to that like a kid waits for Christmas!

You know how to deliver, B! Don't let us down!!!

    Singers often use a back track but also sing live along with the track.

  5. 5

    I guess she will be doing the same for the Superbowl

  6. 6

    I take back what I said yesterday, she did not do a good job, anyone can make a recording in a studio.

  7. 7

    Does anyone sing live anymore? I thought this was too good to be true.
    Kelly Clarkson was off key but at least she sang live.

  8. 8

    She looks old too :(

  9. 9

    she is as phoney as the weaves in her hair the next thing you'll report is that shes not really a blonde

    just like the prez… a faker…..

    I almost spit out my tea when Perez says he hopes she doesn't lip synch at the Super Bowl. Are you kidding me? Of course she won't perform live. Why should she? She's not a professional. She's an overrated hack with a one note range. I also noted during her inaugural "performance" she hit a flat note. How is that possible when you're recording it in the first place. Total fraud.

  12. irvinegirl says – reply to this


    Re: MJ – It's been reported that she didn't even bother to sing live along with the track but rather she just lip synched the whole thing. Love the move of taking out the ear piece. Fraud.

  13. Jill says – reply to this


    Perfect! A fake performance for a fraudulent, lying president who has no business being in office. How poetic…

  14. Ok says – reply to this


    So…Whitney Houston lipsynched her famous version @ the Superbowl

  15. OhPlease says – reply to this


    This is idiotic. All of the performances were pre-recorded. Did PH not read the actual news articles??? It's standard operating procedure. The band wasn't even really playing… And yes, she did do a great job and so did the rest of the artists who put their voices down for the even.

    Karma????….Her secret is OUT within 24 hours !!!! :D

  19. OhPlease says – reply to this


    Super Bowl - Fully expect her to perform live. If you've ever seen her concert live then you know it's all her. Why pretend that she was the only one to use a pre-recorded track at the inauguration???? At least her track was outstanding…

  20. Daisy says – reply to this


    She does this all the time at her concerts….why is everybody tripping now?? pfffff

    Re: Ash

    ….bad acting gone baaadddddd !!! LOL

  28. Rita says – reply to this


    Some of you are morons. A recording studio can not make a terrible singer with a terrible voice sound good. Granted, it can make them sound BETTER, but not to the standard of Mariah, Whitney or Beyonce. Even autotune has it's limits; it can only correct a vocal performance by a few semitones. The only advantage of a studio session is that the singer can sing the song numerous times and then pick the best parts from each recording and merge them together.

    NOW WHY ARE WE SURPRISED?! She FAKED her pregnancy! Everything about Beyonce is fake she needs to take a seat. Kelly Clarkson kicked her ass yesterday, she should've told B to move over & show her how the pros do it.

  35. kirai says – reply to this


    She's most overrated person, and if everyone noticed they lowered the key so she can make it sound like she can reached the high notes. I used to like her, but when she started
    promoting hair color for her fake hair, all i can think of this girl Fake!!!

  36. 36

    everything about these people is FAKE!

  37. WhitePPL says – reply to this


    U white ppl, just sit on the internet waiting for opportunities to hate on black celebrities!! This must've made you guys day!! The negativity is amazing…. someone above even said 'Blue Ivy was the devil' who says that about a little child? You muthfuckas have no boundaries!!! Beyonce is clearly singing over a pre-recorded track…. her voice is just softer than the playback.

  38. K Bye says – reply to this


    I think it's great how Gaga's finally getting called out for stealing songs and Beyonce's finally getting called out for lipsyncing.

  39. 39

    why aren't people giving a shit about kelly clarkson's lip synching then? why does it ALL have to come down on bey's shoulders?

    Kelly Clarkson sang live so there was no reason for BeYAWNce not to.

  42. Titanna says – reply to this


    Re: selinaaaa

  51. dan says – reply to this


    She lip synced the superbowl anthem back a few years ago too. Maybe she didnt want a repeat of Christina Aguilera singing the national anthem.

  52. Mickie says – reply to this


    Re: dan

    Christina is brave/strong girl…not like Bey.
    She is just another toy for Jay-Z, b**ch !!!

    Re: OhPlease

    So why the DRAMATIC removal of the ear piece if she wasn't trying to LOOK like she was singing live!?!

  57. jes says – reply to this


    if you have bothered to actually listen to her singing above you can cleary hear the she is infact singing live! yes she is singing over a prerecorded track, but which artist doesn't do that these days..

  58. Marlin says – reply to this


    Beyonce is the voice of our generation,u haters are just jealous of her talent and to make yourself feel better you start hatin on Beyonce.She was sick with a hoarse voice and didn't want to disappoint Obama.Plus all her performances are live except this one.I am disappointed in Beyonce but we forgive u B!

  59. prettylady007 says – reply to this


    Kelly did great. When a national anthem is sang it's suppose to move you, Beyonce did not do that…..It's over for Beyonce, she had her time she's been been in the game a long time and people are just tired of her.
    I've said this before and i will say it again Beyonce never got a chance to live life and even though she has all that money there's a sadness to her…Ever since she got with Jay-Z her fan base has declined and she has more haters than ever…
    Bey needs to look into other adventures, her dramatic stunt at the inaugural says it, her niche is acting…

  60. kirai1 says – reply to this


    Re: Marlin – What generation are you talking about, are you insane?

  61. 61

    Well … I guess she wanted to sound it perfect for the occasion since it's very easy to mess up in such of big event !

  62. Kate says – reply to this


    Of course she lip-synced. She has lip-synced at several major events. Her pre-recorded voice had backing vocals and other things done to it to sound better because her native voice is quite ghetto. Sorry but I don't want to detect her texan accent and they try to disguise it and hide it as much as possible LOL.

    C'mon guys, it's no surprise. She said she gained 65 lbs while pregnant but never looked more than 10 lbs heavier.

    Kudos to her for being a great lip-syncer. She's definitely not a great singer, never has been and never will be.

    One of the tells is that when she sings LIVE, her voice is actually a lot deeper.

  63. 63

    Shame on you Beyonce. I watched this twice & saw "Sasha Fierce" come out like she was going to sing live. What a joke. She's a performer & put on a performance, hence Kelly Clarkson who SINGS! The excuses coming from her excuse camp is pathetic, as usual. Total loser & lazy. Makes me believe I can sing now too…all I need is a backtrack!!!

  64. Teegan says – reply to this


    Who the hell cares..

  65. 65

    Kelly did a great job and was classy to do it LIVE. I have to admit I am disappointed in Beyonce for lip syncing at a Presidential inauguration.

  66. 66

    LET Jhud do the superbowl now that gal can sing ….

  67. The Bimbo says – reply to this


    Fake like her body….she is SO disgusting like a jobless pole-dancer. Pass me the bucket.

    :( :( :(

  68. Hahahahahaha says – reply to this


    Beyonce is so stupid she had to lip-sync because she doesn't know the words. Period.

    I was about to get really upset about Beyonce lip-synching, but then I remembered that I'm not a gay hair dresser in Atlanta.

    Re: Ash – Thank you. No hate goes to katy perry or Rihanna but as soon as some rumour is made up about a women who can clearly sing we all start hating. FIX UP!

  71. prg says – reply to this


    everything about her is fake she and her fugly husband thinks they are royalty

  72. Missunderstood says – reply to this


    What's new? Haven't all performers at least once in their careers done the same? People need to get a grip and realize that there are more pressing issues to solve in the world.

  73. Maheli says – reply to this


    Beyonce did not lip sing! people just need to accept the fact that she's awesome……

  74. Mushy says – reply to this


    The only person the media stunned is the media and other gosspi sites like this because the rest of America couldn't give a dam!! Next story please.

  75. Mushy says – reply to this


    Most of you people that are posting on this article desperately need to see a shrink quick or I expect to read about you in the next mass shootings. You have so much hate and anger and use every opportunity to spew it out attacking Beyonce, the President and Democrats. Really go see a shrink fast then go get yourself a job so you will have something better to do with your time then to make hateful comments about someone you do not know and will never meet.

    Re: Riri4Life
    You are the ignorant ghetto one, if you are going to talk about someone you should at least spell their name correctly especially when the spelling is easily accessible to you rather than try to piece it together the way it sounds. You don't have to be black to be from the ghetto and by the way Beyonce never lived in the ghetto, do a little research.
