Everybody was moved to tears by Beyonce’s live rendition of “Star-Spangled Banner” yesterday at the Presidential Inauguration. However, girlfriend failed to mention that she was lip-syncing the whole time!
A spokesperson for the U.S. Marine Corp Band — which provides the music for the Inauguration — tells TMZ, Beyonce mouthed the words to a pre-recorded studio version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
A hint as to the actual origins of the version Beyoncé sang came from her own hand: On January 20, the day before the ceremony, Beyoncé posted pictures to her Instagram account that appeared to show her in a recording studio. In one, she holds a copy of the sheet music to “The Star Spangled Banner” in front of a microphone attached to a recording device, and in another she sits in front of recording equipment while members of the Marine Corps Band stand clutching sheet music behind her.
