Here we go! Reports are surfacing that Beyonce’s inauguration performance was completely fake. While there’s no doubt the American Idol guest star has some incredible talent, people are wondering why Beyonce used an audio track to perform the Star Spangled Banner instead of singing alongside the Marine Corps band. Keep reading for the details!
Beyonce has an incredible amount of talent, but yesterday proved to be difficult for her. The incredible Marine Corps band (Which any singer would be honored to perform with) was set to play the Star Spangled Banner alongside Beyonce, but at the last minute, Beyonce asked that an audio track be played instead. Not only that, but it seems that Beyonce had some audio problems; during the song she was seen taking out her earpiece.
Kelly Clarkson seemed to have NO difficulty performing her number, and it was quite obvious that she performed it live. Beyonce’s performance, not so much. Beyonce even instagrammed a photo of herself in a recording studio holding up the sheet music to America’s favorite song.
Master Sgt. of the U.S. Marine Corps Band Kristin Dubois spoke about the odd performance, saying,”We all know Beyonce can sing. We all know the Marine Corps Band can play. We do not know why she decided to go with the pre-recorded music at the last minute.”
Something is fishy! Maybe the weather proved too cold for Beyonce’s voice? She HAD to be prepared for cold weather, as temperatures have dipped incredibly low on inauguration days past. Either way, it’s somewhat disappointing to think that she lip-synched the number.
