Lip-Synced or Live: Beyoncé Singing the Star-Spangled Banner


But to close observers, it appeared the performer was not singing live. To press seated just below the podium, in front of the “President’s Own” Marine Corps Band, it was evident that the band wasn’t actually playing during the song—even though band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn was conducting energetically and the band members mimicked blowing into their instruments. Separately, at one point during her performance, Beyoncé removed her earpiece.

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.

Miming along to a pre-recorded track isn’t unheard of at inaugural ceremonies. At President Obama’s 2009 inauguration, cold weather and wind meant that a live performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Itzhak Perlman had to be nixed in favor of a recording. But there are no previously known cases of a singer lip-syncing the national anthem during an inaugural performance.

  2. Here in America, when the Star Spangled Banner is sang, it is performed with no accompaniment of any ban or instrument whatsoever. The singer will just sing it on her own and this is what Beyonce did. I live in DC and we saw this performance yesterday live on TV.

    3. I read People Magazine, it says she did Lyp Synced. She didn't have the time to rehearse with the Marine Corps Band, that's why. Also, apparently, anybody who will sing in an inauguration will have to record the SPB in the event that the singer will not be able to sing live.

  6. This sucks a million more because we know that Beyonce could have sang it live.

    There must be a really good reason for her to decide at the last minute that she'll use the pre-recorded track. Regardless, i'm still a Beyonce stan through and through!

  9. Mukha ngang lip sync. Ewan ko ba, may something sa actual na pagkanta na wala sa lip syncing. Subtle, pero mahahalata mo ang pagkakaiba. Ang masasabi ko lang, ANG PANGIT NG BANGS NI MICHELLE OBAMA

  13. Come on guys, for anyone who will be invited to sing the National Anthem of the United States of America, with the whole world watching, during the inauguration day of one of the most powerful and influential person in the world, it will always be wise to consider not to do it live and to lip sync it instead.

    I wonder how much more criticisms will people gonna throw to her if she failed to nail it on that day. Imagine she didn't hit the notes right?Or worse, she lost her voice on that day?It will be a complete disaster. It's a professional move for her not do do it live.

    Anyway, regardless whether it's lip synced or live, Beyonce is still Beyonce.. =)

  14. It has been confirmed. It was indeed lip synced. I just wonder, did Beyonce doubt her ability to sing live? If others can sing live, why can't she? Well, at least she did it as if she's really singing live. Magaling umarte ang lola nyo, infernez!

    But then, Beyonce is Beyonce as Anna Dizon is Anna Dizon.

    4. It's an old joke. Yan mismomg si Anna Dizon (artista yata noon o politician) ang nasabi nyan, e di naman siya sikat

    5. she has her reasons why she didn't sing it live..maybe she doesn't have enough time to practice it dahil nka focus xa sa knyang upcoming superbowl performance?? remember, beyonce is a perfectionist and i'm sure she definitely does not want to mess up on that special day.

      Delete
  15. The band at the inauguration admitted that she lipsynced...oooops

    ReplyDelete
  16. Also, did anyone observe that she sort of snubbed VP Biden? Wonder why she did not even shake hands with him. Hahaha!

  19. it's not lip synced. quality ng sound from a record and a live performance is very different, usually maririnig mo un sa buga ng mic at sa mga pag bwelo ng singer. Beyonce's performance was live.
