Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé might’ve both wowed everyone at the Presidential Inauguration yesterday, but only one of them truly sang!
As we reported earlier, it’s now been confirmed that Queen Bey did NOT sing The Star-Spangled Banner live… but the American Idol winner sure did!
Kelly chose NOT to lip sync My Country 'Tis of Thee with a backing track, which is usually recorded just as a precaution.
A U.S. Marine Corp Band spokesperson stated:
"We all know Beyonce can sing … We don't know why she chose to use the pre-recorded track.”
No word yet from Bey… but we are still a bit disappointed!
As for Kelly, at least she has remained true to her early Idol roots!
