Beyonce Lip Synced The National Anthem At The Inauguration Yesterday

I wonder if this performance is going in Beyonce‘s Beyonce Vault Of All Things Beyonce Is Great She Our Divine Leader Everything Is Sunny All The Time Always Good Time Beach Party Vault she keeps in her house. The Times reports:

Beyoncé did not sing the national anthem live at President Obama’s inauguration. Millions of viewers around the world were stunned by the singer’s spectacular rendition of the anthem but The Times has learnt that she was lip-syncing to a pre-recorded backing track. A spokeswoman for the Marine Corp Band said it was standard procedure to record a backing track and Beyoncé decided shortly before her performance to rely on the studio version rather than risk singing it live on the Capitol

Kelly Clarkson sang live, so….this seems like spin and bullshit to me. Not sure what all the dramatics and the whole taking the earpiece thing was about. When people say Beyonce is the greatest performer alive today maybe this is what they are talking about.
