Beyonce's Lip-Synced Inaugural Anthem: Is It Really a Big Deal?
 
 
	WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 21: Beyoncé performs the national anthem as U.S. President Barack Obama looks on during the presidential inauguration on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol January 21, 2013 in Washington, DC.

The jig is up. It took less than 24 hours for news to break that Beyoncé's striking live performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the inaugural ceremonies for President Barack Obama on Monday might have merely a lip-synced run-through of a track she recorded earlier.

http://www.billboard.com/news/beyonce-did-not-actually-sing-at-inauguration-1008107082.story" rel="nofollow - Did Beyonce Lip-Sync at Inauguration?

The news is a shocker, considering the R&B queen is no stranger to big stages and annihilating them in real time. It's important to note that she did sing the http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7GzlGMxJO7U" rel="nofollow - National Anthem at the 2004 Superbowl live (at least, we think she did).

Nevertheless, the response to today's news has been swift and harsh. Fans that lauded her performance, right down to when she yanked the earpiece out of her left lobe, feel like they've been lied to. Like yesterday, Beyonce is currently a trending Twitter topic, but this time for all the wrong reasons

 

"So, sincere question here, the pulling out of the earpiece was because the recorded version might throw off her lip-sync?" https://twitter.com/grubreport/status/293768400809914371" rel="nofollow - one Twitter user asked.

But the bigger idea and question to ask here is if whether Beyoncé lip-syncing is really such a big deal.

On one hand, no, it's not. This isn't a Milli Vanilli situation here and should not be treated as such. If Beyoncé did lip-sync, she was not mouthing over another woman's voice. It was her... just maybe not her at that moment. She recorded herself singing the best version of what, presumably, she didn't think she could do come show time. Was it the cold weather? Was it nerves? Only Queen B knows for sure.

Should she have wrecked an amazing ceremony because of an off key showing, for the selfish fact that singing live would earn her more respect than the possibility of people finding out that it was pre-recorded? Years from now, when critics and pundits look back at the best National Anthem efforts at inaugurations, Beyoncé will be likely be mentioned. She won't be banned from The Hall of Awesome Inaugural Performances. Either way, it was her voice. She sold the hell out of it. And that's alright.

But on the other hand...

It's a big deal. In a musical feats of strength contest, the National Anthem is arguably one of the heaviest weights to lift. Artists ranging from the likes of http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=b94aBPC5T-E" rel="nofollow - Christina Aguilera to http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ZRXF4hIkl9E" rel="nofollow - Steven Tyler to http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JDMvfAq7QPw" rel="nofollow - Roseanne Barr can vouch for that. It's understandable that any artist who doesn't think they could do it justice pre-record their performance

i really don't understand why its a big deal....shes more than proven that she can sang so what's the problem? this is a normal procedure
she sang the anthem live with destiny's child at the all stars game, she's sung live and acapella a bunch of times...let the damn girl live

and from a singer's perspective it's hard to sing in deep cold like that...she had on a dress, not a jacket...the cold is not good for the lungs/vocal chords but that's another thing...

anyway it really isn't that serious

They always prerecord the National Anthem for Superbowl performances. Artists like Britney, Janet and her sometimes lip sync bc their dancing all over the place for hours. She wasnt though, so she has no reason

you're right, that was nowhere close to being as good as beyonce. of course kelly sung live, that sh*t was horrible. maybe she should have sung over a track like bey did. i don't know how kelly slipped through the cracks and got the go ahead to sing at such a historic even but somebody needs to be held accountable for it. i expected nothing less than perfection.

anyways, i have never been a fan of white singers. i'm not impressed by any of them.

Yeah...I mean, if there's anytime to pour it out from the heart it's now. Kelly sang live so she has NO excuse.

I am not amused.

I missed the live performance so I only saw it through replayed bits on the news so I couldn't tell.

A video that the Wall Street Journal posted yesterday (before the rumors) actually uses the audio from her mic (as they recorded from the stage) instead of the speaker system like the tv outlets used.  And you can hear her voice over the track, including the feedback from the mic which explains why she removed her earpiece. Check it below:

 

By the way, she also just opened up  http://www.beyonce.com/en/login" rel="nofollow - The BeyHive Blog  on her website with all her personal favorite things.  Chick is about her empire these days..

Does it really matter?


Posted By: modelbusiness82
Date Posted: Jan 23 2013 at 3:33am
IMO it doesn't really matter. It was clearly Bey's voice and she was clearly singing on top of herself - hence taking out the earpiece as it was messing her up.

As several have already stated, singing out live in the freezing cold isn't likely to give you your best performance. And on CNN the army band that backed her admitted that all artists who sing the national anthem with them are required to record a back up version in the event that things don't go as planned.

IMO, the fact that this is causing a stir is ignorant - especially when it's established news outlets like CNN acting like they're now the TMZ of the legitimate news segment. Um our economy is still effed, we still have a partisan political climate, how is Bey & her singing or not singing the anthem live going to change that?

I have a  friend in the band and yes she did lip sync. She also first planned to sing but wanted to A capella but Obama said it would be disrespectful to NOT use the band.  She didn't want to rehearse with the band and they found out at the last minute a recording would be used so the band basically had to lip sync as well.

guuurrrll, you know Bey stans ain't trying to here that.. and if Bey did lip sync, then she should have did it over a better track because that was a mediocre performance.. I think Kelly's was better.
Anyways, I really don't care that she lip synced. Being that I was at the inarguration, I was more like "she need to hurry up so I can get out of this damn cold"LOL.

I think people wish they had a reason to knock Beyonce down a peg or two but this clearly aint gone cut it. I'm not a big fan of hers but obviously the girl can sing her ass off so folks need to get over it.

Not a Beyonce stan but they need to let that damn woman make it.. Why are some people focused on the fact that she lip synced? I agree that she should have sung it live but I'm not pressed nor upset that she didn't. I guess she had her reasons why she didn't. I heard on the radio that someone in the band did leak that she lip synced..

I understand that it should have been authentic. It was an inauguration. I was just more focused on the fact that we have a president of color in the White House for another term. This may not happen again in my lifetime.

Did it stop Obama from being inargurated again? I mean, did they make him pack his sh*t and get the hell out of the White House because of Bey lip syncing? I don't care but I understand why ppl may be up in arms about it though..

this is simply an effort to take away from such an important day...but what else is new?

Well, now the band is back-tracking somewhat. Basically they’re saying THEY didn’t play live, but they just don’t know about Bey.

On Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Marine Band told news outlets that Beyonce had lip synced at President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

Master Sgt. Kristin duBois said the band was notified at the last minute that Beyonce would use a pre-recorded voice track.

But by late afternoon, the Marine Corps backed off that statement.

Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf said that because there was no opportunity for Beyonce to rehearse with the Marine Band, it was determined that a live performance by the band was ill advised. Instead they used a pre-recorded track for the band’s portion of the song.

“Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter’s vocal performance,” Wolf’s statement continued, “no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded.”

No I think the marine corp is doing it to cover up for themselves. The media is tainting the day, why wouldn't they come out and say something? It is a controversy because even though they lip sync at the Superbowl no one has ever lip synced at the inauguration. Two very different events.

Okay I just googled.
I guess Beyonce is getting flack because Kelly and James Taylor sang live also people are not happy that the band said she did not have time for rehearsals. And still it was the national anthem!
It's been a week people are still talking about Manti Te'o its what the media does!

instruments don't behave in frigid temps. Last inauguration I heard that the piano keys were not coming back up (sticking) during rehearsals so they used a silent piano with the keys decoupled and played a recording. Yo Yo Ma said that they were afraid instruments would crack and strings snap.

Ashley was not at the inauguration. There was nothing to overshadow what Ashley did. There was PLENTY to overshadow beyonce's alleged lip sync.

I give her the side-eye because of the extra dramatic way she ripped out the earpiece.
 I'll admit that I hopped on the Bey stan train for 24 hours, I was impressed that she was able to finish the song without her earpiece. When I heard it was all lip-synced, I hopped back off the train.

Now Jennifer Hudson, should have been taking notes from the Beyonce School of Lip-Syncing, because her rendition of Al Green' s "Let's Stay Together" was painful. Somebody should have just popped in an Al Green CD and had JHud mouth the words.

we went crazy at the party when Jenn sang that song. I thought she did a good job (Al Green stan that I am lol)

I read that Al G had a scheduling conflict and couldn't make it. He said he would have loved to be there serenading them.
