Beyonce Sings National Anthem Live… Nails It (video)
Beyonce admitted to lip-synching the National Anthem at last week’s presidential inauguration during her Super Bowl Media Day in New Orleans… and then sang The Star-Spangled Banner right there, just to shut everyone up.
“Any questions?” Bey said simply once she finished.
After admitting to using a backing track, the 32-year-old diva explained the logic behind her controversial decision:
“I am a perfectionist…I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show and a very important moment for me. Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk…so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.”
