It turns out Beyoncé’s breath-taking performance of the National Anthem at Obama’s inauguration was too good to be true. Page Six is reporting Beyoncé’s performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” was 100 per cent lip-synched.
Kristin DuBois, a representative for the United States Marine Band which performed alongside Beyoncé’s performance says the lip-dub was a last minute decision.
“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” said DuBois. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track.”
