Beyonce Admits Lip Synching at Inauguration, Belts Out National Anthem Live at NFL PresserAt last. Our long national nightmare is over. Beyonce just surprised everyone in the room at a Super Bowl press conference by belting out the National Athem live. She walked on the stage and asked everyone to stand up. A puzzled press corps complied, then were stunned as Bey belted out the national athem live, a capella. She sounded amazing. It was pretty funny, actually. Oh, and she looked amazing in a white minidress.
She then admitted she lip syched at the inauguration and explained why: "I am a perfectionist and one thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed, and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show and a very, very important emotional show for me. One of my proudest moments. "Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the president and the inauguration and I wanted to make him and my country proud. 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."
Beyonce also assured the press that she would be singing live at the Super Bowl half time show saying, "I will absolutely be singing live. I am well rehearsed and I will absolutely be singing live. This is what I was born to do. What Iím born for."
Well, now that this controversy is over, we can all look forward to the half time show. You can see her live performance of the anthem today here. Here is a clip:
