Yes – yes she did.
According to a source, pop diva Beyonce chose to lip-synch to a prerecorded track during her performance of The Star Spangled Banner at President Barack Obama’s inauguration Monday night.
A rep for the Marine Corps band who accompanied Beyonce during her performance,
All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day. 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.
We all know Beyonce can sing… We don’t know why she chose to use the pre-recorded track.
We get that there are tons of factors that could’ve caused the “Halo” singer to cancel her live vocals, but we feel it’s only fitting to point out that our girl Kelly Clarkson performed her rendition of My Country Tis of Thee without backing tracks or prerecorded vocals.
Marine Corps band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn who worked to prep the stars for the event said that 31-year-old singer’s decision not to sing live may have been because she had so little time to prepare.
We had Kelly [Clarkson] in over the weekend to rehearse and record. Beyonce, she’s getting ready for the Super Bowl, so we didn’t have a chance to do anything with her until last night.
Super Bowl or Presidential Inauguration? Super Bowl or Presidential Inauguration? Seems like one of those should’ve taken precedent…
Just kidding! We still love you Beyonce and cannot WAIT to see your halftime show during the Super Bowl in a couple weeks! Be sure to check out the video of Beyonce’s performance of The Star Spangled Banner below…
