All tag results for 'national anthem'
YEP! It's true!
An inauguration official CONFIRMED our suspicions when they said in a statement:
"She did not sing live. . . Because she didn't have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band. It was all Beyoncé."
Ah well, she may not have sang the Star Spangled Banner live, but what came out of that microphone was pure GOLD to our ears!
And we're sure Lady Bey will more than make up for this not singing live business when she brings her A game at this year's Super Bowl halftime show!
We know you can SLAY live, girl! Don't sell yourself short!
Oh Perezcious readers! Have we got a TREAT for you!
This is too spot on and too HIGHlarious, that you might need some adult diapers!
Check out the must-see vid (above)!!!
Whitney’s version, of course, was taken from her Super Bowl XXV performance, where she, too, also lip synched!
Perfection! PURE perfection!
But to fake an emotional performance of our National Anthem for the President's inauguration would kinda be a slap in the face to those watching!
It's a step above sticking on a CD and grinning for the cameras!
HOWEVER, whether or not Lady Bey lip-snyched or sang live, the artist DID at least rehearse with the US Marine Band, as girl posted pictures from the practice sesh (above)!
Beyoncé even made sure to include a snap of Star Spangled Banner's sheet music.
We believe you lady! We believe you totally sang the tune live at some point in time! But whether that time included Monday morning… gosh, we just don't know what to believe!
Ch-ch-check out more images from Sasha Fierce's inauguration

Did she or didn't she??
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:
How often do you see everyone — from major celebrities to the most unknown of singers — totally screwing up the Star Spangled Banner?? All the tiiiiiiiime!
We feel like this is because everyone just assumes they know it, as they've been singing it for years and have heard it since they were very very little. This is an awful mistake, and one that Alicia Keys WILL NOT make! Ha!
She's been practicing like it's a brand new song!! Here's what she said:
