Beyoncé FAKED IT! National Anthem Lip Synching Confirmed By Inaugural Official!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!BeyonceBarack Obama

YEP! It's true!

Empress Beyoncé lip synched to her own beautiful voice during President Obama's inauguration!

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!

Beyoncé's Inaugural Scandal: Jennifer Lopez And LeAnn Rimes Defend Lip Synching!


Beyoncé is under some SCORCHING fire after speculation that she lip synched her Star Spangled Banner performance at the presidential inauguration, but at least she has Jennifer Lopez and LeAnn Rimes to help put out the flames!

J.Lo and LeAnn agree that President Barack Obama's BFF probably didn't have a choice!

The country singer took time away from throwing Brandi Glanville shade and told Jimmy Kimmel:

"I'm actually taking up for her on this one. There are times when people will ask you to do it, and they will not let you do it unless you do it because they want control over what happens."

For once, LeAnn is actually making sense!

And during her interview on The Daily Show, Jennifer admitted:

Beyoncé Lip Synch Scandal: Posts Pictures Of National Anthem Rehearsal!

Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonce

Beyoncé's voice is obviously AWEsome and we've no doubt she can sing live…

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 recording rehearsal (below)!

Zooey Deschanel Brings Her Soulful Sound To The 2012 World Series! Check Out Her Rendition Of The National Anthem HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteZportzZooey Deschanel

It's about time the 2012 World Series got a little bit more a-DORK-able!

For Saturday night's game between the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers, it was none other than our beloved Zooey Deschanel who was hand with her vocal stylingz to perform The Star-Spangled Banner!

And as to be expected, she sounded absolutely LOVELY!

Give it a listen (above)!

So SO pretty, right?!

And DIFFERENT from the usual vocal acrobatics most people singing the National Anthem attempt and fail!

She's really able to show some more range here than what we've come to expect from her, while still reminding us of why we fell in love with that deep, classic '50s sound she does so well!


Way to go, gurl!

Demi Lovato Struts Her Star-Spangled Self At The World Series!

Filed under: Music MinuteDemi LovatoX Factor

Last night, X Factor judge and singing starlet, Demi Lovato, stepped up to the stage plate, during game four of the World Series!

Gurl looked gorg as she took on The Star-Spangled Banner, which is NOT an easy thing to do… especially in front of all those people!

Check out DemDem’s rendition (above)!!

We think she did a pretty good job, though she definitely seemed she felt she had a lot to prove and perhaps overdid it with the Xtina-esque runs!

However, just last year, Mz. Lovato sang the National Anthem at game five of the World Series, which we preferred over this one!

You're AH-Mazing nonetheless, Demi!

Katharine McPhee Slays The National Anthem!!

Obviously we know Katharine McPhee has stellar vocals…

But girl dominates one of the HARDEST songs ever conceived on the battle field!

The SMASH star lent her patriotic self to Tide's unfurling of a 6,000 square foot American Flag in Bryant Park Tuesday, where she sweetly sang America's national anthem The Star Spangled Banner, 100% live, sans instrumental accompaniment!

Let your American flag fly with Katie's voice to lift it high (above) and then scroll on down below to view snaps of Kat's pre-fourth Summer celebration.

Happy Happy Fourth of July, lovely people!
