Beyoncé Lip Sync
President Barack Obama’s second inauguration on Monday featured performances from Kelly Clarkson, James Taylor, and a rousing rendition of the National Anthem from Beyoncé. Now, reports are surfacing that Beyoncé was lip-synching her performance.
“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” United States Marine Band rep Kristin DuBois told Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”
