Report: Beyoncé Lip-Synched ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ At Inauguration

The New York Times points out that this is hardly the first time inaugural artists have pre-recorded their performance for one reason or another.

“In 2009, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Itzhak Perlman lip-synched (technically finger-synched) their performance of a special John Williams composition because the day’s extreme cold weather caused fears of broken strings and bad intonations.”

An Instagram pic (below) seems to confirm that Beyoncé recorded the track the night before in a studio with the Marine Corps Band.
