Beyonce Lip-Synced Performance At Inauguration
 
Beyonce got caught for lip-syncing her rendition of "The National Anthem" from yesterday's performance at President Obama's inauguration. It's also worth noting that Kelly Clarkson DID perform when she sang "My Country Tis' of Thee."

And people got mad at me in the last thread saying she sounded awful

Kelly's done it before too. Today's popular music and the industry surrounding it is a big bundle of shit.

irthesteve 01/22/13 01:36 PM

ok.

Anyone else wondering where Qadriyyah is right now?

abusedcat 01/22/13 01:36 PM

Obama and his administration use tons of smoke and mirrors, so why can't Beyonce? ;-)

jesse_hitz 01/22/13 01:37 PM

Bitch over sings everything anyways. Get ready for more of this at the superbowl!

The Gunz Show 01/22/13 01:38 PM

stupid of her to do this before her Superbowl performance.

Close9 01/22/13 01:41 PM

Yes we can... oh wait

Dustin Harkins 01/22/13 01:43 PM

Still think Beyonce can do whatever she wants due to her being Beyonce, but more authenticity would've been nice.

But FUCK what great timing for a post, haha.

TheDemosRock 01/22/13 01:43 PM

It doesn't (or shouldn't?) take an engineer to understand that this really isn't a big deal.

For an outdoor performance this giant, it's more surprising that Kelly Clarkson didn't lip-sync.

ehhh Beyoncé has this weird stranglehold on people's emotions. Somehow, I doubt there will be too many people griping about lip-syncing (though it's almost a guarantee that she's at least currently planning to lip-sync at the halftime show).

I don't like Beyonce that much and I find all the insane hype around her more confusing than anything else.. But still, my guess is that she'll be getting nothing but praise for how "fierce" she is.

shannosaurus 01/22/13 01:45 PM

I don't care about her either way, but I wouldn't even consider caring if she wasn't so damn dramatic about it as if she were really singing.

All Superbowl performances are lypsynced... Even Bruce Springstean did it.

I immediately thought of her and her crush on Beyonce. Still glad I ignored her.

Someone posted a tweet comparing Beyonce taking out her earpiece to Luke disabling the targeting computer when he's in the Death Star.

Now that tweet seems sad instead of hilarious, because she sells the performance aspect sooo hard.

Thank you.
Lip-syncing on SNL (á la Ashlee Simpson) is nothing comparable to doing it at the Super Bowl or in any ultra-massive venue (especially outdoor ones).

As an ND fan, I have to commend you for that one. Touche.

EmilySkyDiamond 01/22/13 01:55 PM

I'm glad she did. How bad would it be if she messed up? Kudos to Kelly though.

cholly 01/22/13 01:57 PM

So dumb. She can sing, so why didn't she?

movingxpictures 01/22/13 01:58 PM

How could she do this to us

JunkBondTrader 01/22/13 02:06 PM

beyonce is allowed to lip sync. shes beyonce and everyone knows she can sing. whatever.

mikeisonfire 01/22/13 02:06 PM

If we're going to our panties in a bunch over Lance Armstrong using PEDs, then we should be just as upset when singers use pre-recorded tracks to perform.

HarryPotter 01/22/13 02:07 PM

did you know that Jay Z is also related to Obama, Lincoln, and King John of England...

There are a lot of considerations that need to be made for big performances like this one. If she was anything but 100% healthy, if there was a possibility of a technical issue arising for live singing, etc. it was likwly a prudent choice.

At the end of the day, she sang her heart out (in the studio) and until this "revelation" her beautiful voice and the passion of her delivery were headline news.

SeeYouHomeWolf 01/22/13 02:07 PM

Noted, I will continue to ignore her shitty music.

:-x

Is it even worth it to list the difference between PEDs and lip-syncing?

This... is incredible.

Qadriyyah 01/22/13 02:14 PM

I'm here and I'm still queer for Beyonce.

A little disappointing but whatever, I know that Bey can sing.

tell that mick 01/22/13 02:17 PM

Should be pointed out that apparently the band also wasn't play live.

Jenajena 01/22/13 02:18 PM

At least we can say that Beyonce has probably the best ever recorded version of the National Anthem.

I'm a little disappointed, but she's Beyonce. She'd get more negative attention if she'd decided to sing it live and then mess up the lyrics or something.

I love Beyonce but the best ever recorded version of SSB is Whitney's.

no recording studio would have in ear units for monitoring. sucks when you work in the music industry and no one else understands that line of work

MTE, but people are delusional as fuck just because he's The Boss and act like only the women (Janet, Madonna) lipsync. They literally have around 8 mins to get the stage together and do a quick test. There's no time to do a sound check

WeltallAY 01/22/13 02:33 PM

As someone who's not at all patriotic for the US I won't deny that this news brought a smile to my face and seems very typical. That said, it's too bad. Not a fan of her whatsoever but she has pipes and it's a shame this was probably out of her control.

suicidalmoose 01/22/13 02:34 PM

-.-'

jurzdevil 01/22/13 02:35 PM

i am ok with this. presidential inauguration is pretty much the pinnacle of national anthem singing. there's actual meaning behind it at this point, unlike during professional sports. it should be a notable performance yet nothing should occur that takes the spotlight away from the reason its being sung. if you need to record a perfect track and then sync with it so the audience is none the wiser then so be it.

its a shame that the media is making a huge deal about it.
