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!
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!
"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:
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!

Who better to close out an AHmazing Inaugural ceremony than Beyoncé?!
Queen Bey took to the podium in Washington, D.C. today in celebration of President Barack Obama's second Inauguration and delivered the National Anthem only as a queen should!
Sasha Fierce — who looked phenomenal with those gorgeous green earrings — belted out The Star-Spangled Banner FLAWLESSLY in front of the enormous crowd!
Check out the must-see performance (above)!!!
Well, Perezcious readers, we're not quite sure anything can top that!
Also worth noting: no one can remove an earpiece as regally as her! LOLz!
Congrats on the second term, Barack… and Beyoncé, thanks for remaining forever consistent and radiant!
