Beyonce didn’t need to prove anything to anyone… but she just did!
Beyonce proved to a room full of reporters, she can sing the National Anthem without lip-syncing! Beyonce did a LIVE version of the “Star-Spangled Banner” on TV without the help of a backing track. And when she finished the song, she simply asked, “Any questions?”
During the conference, Bey was asked about the lip-syncing situation at the Presidential Inauguration last week, and she admitted she used a backing track — claiming, “I am a perfectionist … I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra [at the Inauguration]. It was a live television show and a very important moment for me.”
Beyonce added, “Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk … so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.”
