CONFIRMED: Beyoncé Lip-Synced “Star-Spangled Banner”

Yes, is the answer. Usually, I would dismiss such a claim but after numerous reports from Times of London and the Washingtonian claimed that the Single Ladies songstress mimed her way through the US National Anthem yesterday I was questionable.

Now, CNN has confirmed the reports are true and that Mrs Carter did not sing one note live.

There may be several reasons for this and I am not here to dispute them – but I would love to know the reason that possessed Beyoncé to take out her ear piece halfway through the performance when she was miming? I understand she would naturally act her way through the song as though it was a live performance, but that’s too much.

President Obama reportedly handpicked the Destiny’s Child star to sing the Star-Spangled Banner at his inauguration.
