Say What? :: Beyonce Lip-Synched Her National Anthem Performance

Word on the street is that Beyonce lip-synched her amazing rendition of the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony.

Immediately after her performance, people began buzzing about whether or not she was singing live. According to a recent report by the Washingtonian, she did not. A spokesperson for the Marine Corps told the Washingtonian:

“All music [for inaugural ceremonies] is prerecorded as a matter of course, and that’s something we’ve done for years and years. The Marine Band did perform live throughout the ceremony but we received last-minute word that Beyoncé wanted to use the recording.”

Does this change your opinion of her performance? It was still her voice, just not at that moment. Personally, if I were her I would have used the recording too. At such a special event, you don’t want to risk making any mistakes or having your voice cracked.
