Beyonce At The Inauguration: Live or Memorex?

Dear America, Please get a grip. I can’t say for sure if Beyonce lip synced her performance, but I would hope that she would. Why? Because her performance wasn’t to be about her, it was to be about the President, the country and history. Beyonce’s performance of the National Anthem was supposed to be a stunning, flawless accessory to the entire Inauguration show. And it was. But what would have happened if it wasn’t? At President Obama’s first inauguration, he and Justice Roberts had a couple of flubs. As a result the President had to be sworn in again away from the cameras, and that flub lives in infamy. If Beyonce performed live and cracked there would be no private do over, and that’s all you would be talking about from here on out. Anytime in the future when Beyonce coughed or swallowed wrong in a performance, you would all harken back to her cracked performance at the Presidential Inauguration of 2013. Heck, I guarantee her grandchildren would hear about it, not to mention see the footage. She did her job–let it go! Besides, none of you could tell for sure that she wasn’t live anyway, because lip syncing, even to your own voice, is a serious skill. And may I remind you, it was her voice. She did sing the song. Could you? Yeah, exactly. I am a trained singer. I have performed the National Anthem at large venues like County Stadium and at the Olympic All Stars basketball game. It’s hard, folks. It’s not like singing along to Katy Perry’s Firework in your shower. When you are accomplished enough to even be considered for singing the National Anthem at a grand public event then come talk to me. Until then, folks, move on to some real news… like whether the First Lady dissed John Boehner at the Inauguration Luncheon. SMILE On!
