Did Beyonce Fool You Too? [VIDEO]
It fooled me. And it fooled a lot of people. I said Tuesday morning that I thought Beyonce’s performance of the National Anthem during Monday’s presidential inauguration was one of the best I’d ever heard – ranking right up there with Whitney Houston at Super Bowl 25.
The question in the minds of a lot of people has been how can you possibly deliver such a tremendous performance under such pressure and with so many people watching. Well, Beyonce is a pro, right? True, but she’s apparently enough of a pro to think ahead and record it. Yep, Beyonce lip-syched the national anthem.
It’s standard procedure though. A representative of the United States Marine Band says all music for the ceremony is pre-recorded because there are so many variable factors. The band played live and Beyonce could have sung live too, but at the last minute she decided to use the pre-recorded vocal track. She really sold it though. What do you think? Can you tell?
