Beyonce Lip-Syncs National Anthem at Inauguration

JAN 22, 2013 - The Internet is abuzz with various reactions to the world finding out Beyonce lip-synced her performance at the Presidential 2013 Inauguration. This is not the first time a "safety backup" was used, last inauguration Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman used a recording due to weather (it was way too cold). However this is the first time a performer has used a recording for the National Anthem, so some are upset. Supposedly it was because she didn't have enough rehearsal time, and she thought she would mess up.

UPDATE: JAN 23, 2013 11:30 AM: The reaction to Beyonce lip-syncing the national anthem has been widespread and varies, from defending her to some people thinking she besmirched the anthem or something. Morning Joe opened up with the topic, and hundreds of websites are posting and talking about it. One thing people are concerned about is at first we heard the decision was made well in advance to use the studio recording "safety track", but then a different Marine Band rep said later the decision was made by Ms. "Beyonce" Knowles-Carter at the last minute to use it. Why? One can only surmise that she was afraid of not being able to perform it correctly, and supposedly because there was "not enough rehearsal time".

But some people are pointing out that James Taylor and Kelly Clarkson found the time to rehearse, and they both performed live, and very well. (check out our JTMP YT videos below) The weather was not extreme, nor did she have a cold. In my opinion she should have told us it was a recording. To come out with an ear plug like that seemed to me an act of deception. What's your reaction? Comment over on JTMP's Facebook Page by going to: http://www.facebook.com/justicethroughmusic
