  • Reporters are now speculating that Beyonce’s inaugural performance may have lacked some authenticity.

    The New York Post – as well as a host of other news organizations – is reporting that Beyoncé didn’t perform the “Star-Spangled Banner” live at President Obama’s inauguration on Monday.

    She decided at the last minute to use a pre-recorded track according to a rep for the United States Marine Corp. Band.

    “All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, the band’s rep, told Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”

    Because, over-all, she received pretty good reviews, the news of her lip-synching may come as a surprise and be disappointing. As the Post points out:

    “At one point, Beyoncé even dramatically removed her earpiece – which now seems even more ludicrous, as she wasn’t even making any noise.”

    3. Just goes to show you just how average she really is, without the electronics to compensate for her voice she would be booted off of American, makeup and a husband in the industry goes a long way. The fact that so many people have to come to her defense lets you know she was indeed lip synching the song. the reason for the ear piece is because she can’t remember something as basic as the national anthem, so much for her intelligence.oh well let’s she how she holds up on the super bowl stage, they wouldn’t dare let her sing live, her vocals and ability to carry a tune without electronics will out just how terrible she sings.

    4. That was hilararious. Removing the ear piece and all trying to fool people. Smoke and mirrors folks, smoke and mirrors. Ya’ll should be used to it by now. Btw, did Kelly, Jennifer or the choir rely on pre-recorded material?

    5. Who cares, it was Beywho sang the song…be it live or recorded. That’s the one thing I love about her voice, it’s different from other soul singers. She is probably resting up for the SUPER BOWL!!!!
