Confirmed: Beyonce Lip-Syched At The Inauguration
The singer decided last minute to use a pre-recorded track.
Take a deep breath Queen B stans. Apparently, the amazing performance Beyonce Knowles gave when she sung “The Star Spangled Banner” at the inauguration was entirely lip-syched, Page Six has confirmed. A rep for the United States Marine Band said that she decided to use a pre-recorded track at the last minute. This comes as a shock since she so dramatically mouthed the lyrics and removed her earpiece—only to reveal she wasn’t even making noise.
“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” said Kristin DuBois, a rep for the band. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded track.”
The Beyhive is surely abuzz about the news, since Beyonce can clearly do no wrong. Although, there may be cause for a pause since Kelly Clarkson sung her rendition of “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” live. Beyonce is set to perform for the Super Bowl next month. (New York Post)
