Beyoncé Lip Synched At The Inauguration… But Did Kelly Clarkson Fool Us, Too?!

| Filed under: Kelly ClarksonMusic MinuteBeyonceAmerican IdolBarack Obama

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!

    And when did Bouncie NOT lip-sync??? Jay-Z is in the studio cranking up the Auto-Tune for her, it's all fake. And I'm not a Kelly Clarkson fan, so there! Pop music makes me want to slap someone!

    Re: CaliCoyote – Kelly Clarkson did a Beautiful job. Normally I would not have listened to that song had Kelly not of sang it. The song is on my iPod now!

    That's kind of funny because I thought Kelly sang much better. I am not a big fan of either, but I think Kelly did a GREAT job, Beyonce was ok, definitely not a WOW. It's probably best that she didn't sing live, because even the tape was so-so.

    I'm glad she was exposed. I am so sick of big stars changing up the National Anthem - it is supposed to be sung by everyone - not just one singer messing with it so she can show off. I wish they would have got the military choir to sing it, and encourage everyone to sing along.

    Meh - who cares. We all know Beyonce can sing amazing live so what's the big deal? They were both amazing. Great job ladies!

    Disappointing! I thought I liked Beyonce, but I may have to rethink it. I wasn't paying close enough attention to the lip sync, but now that I know she did…
    Kelly did great, though, and good to know she was actually singing!

    Whatever yo! most people like to create problems where there's none
    Big deal if she did or didn't sing! We all know she can!

    Beyoncé is sooo fake,always sings playback and she's only able to scream through her songs,
    no wonder why her last cd flopped BIG time..she's clearly done :) ahah :) She could find a job over Mc Donald's, the only thing she has is a cute face..

    i love them both!! but i think kelly is more natural than beyonce… more easygoing!

    I still don't see any "confirmation." I see one person in the band saying the band didn't play live - there was a pre-recorded music track. How does that directly translate to lip syncing?

    i'm not going to bother trying to prove it cuz its too early and the info isn't completely out yet…you'll see the info when main stream media gets it…but she did sing along with the track…if you search youtube you can find where you can clearly hear two Beyonces singing…the track and her…the white house discredits reports of lippin and another band member just confirmed that the band didn't play…great super bowl promo tho lol…it's not like she can't really sing…

  14. baddabinda says – reply to this


    So there you have it..I wasn't even impressed with the pereformance she gave. Thought Kelly's had a LOT more impact. Maybe some of the ridiculous idol worship that goes on for Beyonce will back off a bit… She's just a human being, after all. NBD.

    The term "pop star" is stupid. none of these no talent wastes of skin can sing, like all of the rap/hip/bullshit no one will know who ANY OF them are in 20 years. None of this CRAP will still be played on the radio 40 years from now. WORTHLESS

  16. 16

    BITCH, just practicing for lip syncing the super bowl. It's funny, over the years the rockers doing the half time show actually performed LIVE. NOT ONE of the "pop stars" have done so. they all stand up there with a dead mike in their hand and flap their lips to a CD. MILLI VANILLI all of them.

    Re: BASH – "the white house discredits reports of lippin and another band "

    THE white house says so, yeah we all believe that. the obammy WH would not know the truth if it bit them in the ass.

    Re: raypearson – Yeah, we've been waiting for your live performance Ray. We know you have the courage and skill to stand up in front of millions and sing live every time.

  19. Alex says – reply to this


    I thought she did at first, but she DID NOT. Yes, she used a track in case the mic gave out, but she definitely sang. Proof:

    Whaaattt? That is the Great British National anthem, just sung with different words!! God Save The Queen!

    shes proven shes not as good as jhud

    so ur essentially saying the beyonce lip synced and it still sounded bad

    A touch of fraud is appropriate at the gathering of fools.The 'boast of heraldry, the pomp of power' don't address/solve the deadly problems created globally by this God forsaken war waging nation.
