WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 (UPI) — Beyonce lip-synched “The Star Spangled Banner” at President Barack Obama’s inauguration, a representative for the U.S. Marine Band told the New York Post.

“All music is prerecorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, the band’s spokeswoman told the newspaper of Beyonce’s performance Monday in Washington. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the prerecorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why [was.]”

A publicist for Kelly Clarkson, who sang “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” at the ceremony, told the Post, “Kelly did sing live!”

Thanks for the data that helps along with our higher education research papers… A person reduced the problem enormously… Many thanks

Like everything else with Obama, smoke and mirrors

Who care-I like her anyway. What a awesome talent.

I agree. It’s the words that count. Not how or who sings it.

Who cares that is one of the hardest songs to sing if she did it before big not like she was at a concert and people were paying to hear her sing

Is this a republican thing? I don’t know how many people know it but she’s black, her husband is black and her daughter is also black. I’d say that alone qualifies congress to look further into it, who really knows it could be tied to the recent election….maybe, just maybe it wasn’t really her voice on the tape,I say go for it!

No, it’s an idiot thing. Who cares?

Seems like only the democrats talk about rasism. To a republican, if it matters at all, they see a very talented woman lipsyncing to one of the hardest songs every written. To a democrat they see a black woman who pretending to sing so they brand the republicans as rasists. Blame everybody else but where the problem really is, in their own house.

Repeat after me….”I’m in denial and I really am racist. Congressman King is my God.”

At least you are admitting that you are IN denial.

I think congressman King already has. I heard he keeps his hood and torch in his barn.

It could be that her people stem from the same village in Kenya as do Obama’s. If this could be proved then I think we could make a case of conspiracy. If we look long and hard, maybe select a panel, have King chair it the least We might be able to do is revoke her driver’s license.

Who really cares anyway – all bs like our economy !

Do YOU know the words? If you’re truely American you do.
