I think that an entertainer who is afforded the honor of singing the Nationa Anthem anywhere, and certainly at a Presidential Inaugaration, should actually have the balls to sing the song live. Kelly Clarkson did, James Taylor did. I think this was a total cop out!

You guys are stupid Beyoncé has sang this song a thousand times so why would she just not sing it, something had to be wrong if indeed she did lip sync.

Not surprising O would surround himself with similarly fake people…there’s so much BS that would be revealed if the american people would remember that even the president is not above scrutiny.

Obama lip-syncs so why wouldn’t Beyonce do the same at his inaugural?

This fake Beyoncé deserve an Oscar for this acting………..removing the ear piece, acting like she’s singing for real. Drum role please…………………. and the winner for the biggest fake ever is Beyoncé Knowles. I mean everything about this girl is fake, let me begin, Her pregnancy, the color of her hair, her hair, her nails. I don’t even believe this chick is married cause she’s so fake

Yikes, I knew something was off when I watched her, she wasn’t keeping up with the music. In my opinion it was a dumb move on her part, Kelly sang with no problem, Miss Beyonce “Diva” got cold feet.

pop stars have been lip syncing for a long time in concerts and videos-google for a long list which includes even Michael Jackson, whitney Houston, rhanna, and literally dozens of others on occasion. this is particularly the case in concert performances requiring much dancing or movement on stage.

LMAO, uhhhhh, she didn’t really move that much, and I’m pretty sure no one has lip synced at an Inauguration before.

I’ve been saying for yeeeears that Beyonce does not sing her full songs live, she sings to prerecorded tracks and some songs are half full recorded and half live. EVEN IN DESTINY’S CHILD THEY DID THAT but back then it was obvious because technology wasn’t as good as it is now. (youtube it) Even Kelly Rowland, watch her BET award performance with Trey songz. She was fake ‘talking’ to the music but she forgot to put the mike newr her mouth. The thing is. they even add some fake speech on the per-recorded songs to make it seem as if it’s live. Only Occasionally do these people sing live.

Ha Ha, Kelly Clarkson sang it by herself. She obviously did a better job. Actually, I think RiRi is a better singer then Beyonce!

Lol! The biggest laugh of my life! Rihanna… a better singer? Honey, are you deaf? She can’t sing live. Belive me, watched her. She is so BORING, always using her sexuality to entertaine.
Beyonce, on the other hand actually have a talent. She can dance, act, SING.. you should really get you facts right, and never judge on what you like, but on who of them really have talent and respect..
Once a BEYhive, always a BEYhive, peace :)

Beyonce is definitely more talented. But your claim that she can ‘act?’ Come on, let’s not get carried away here…

a little bit of a disappointment, but… whatevs. she has a good voice, and can do it live, if she just didn’t feel like it, she’s allowed to take it safe. no big deal. it does make kelly clarkson’s live performance stand out more, tho.

be real

Posted at 4:09 PM on January 22, 2013  

she never has clothes on tho- every video is tacky and half dressed. Her Gq cover- Yeah real role models for the hododboogers adn trailer trashers. No high school diploma or education. Wow. I see why America economy is getting worst!!! Bunch of dumb dumbs. next her pepsi cans will turn into coke when you open them fake is as fake does.

maybe if she wasn’t so fake people wouldn’t always side eye her asz- it
tell a lot about how people perceive her and her character- Real
people not drones look at the quality and when half the world think your
pregnancy is fake it says al ot about you and how shady she is- No one
wanted to believe light bright beyonce and her family was stealing from
destiny child but … she got it when he started stealing from her then
she fired her daddy . IF he stole fromhis daughter what you thinkhe did
to those other girls- yeah they so much better pure devils. Crotch
shot queens is not a lady- If she is queen it is queen of the gutter.
Just like her shady asz did not even sing the national anthem” i am too
thru with fake mofos” black folks used to keep it real but all of them
are slaves and their fans are typical dumb drones. LATOYA won her lawsuit last week- knowles been shady since destiny child but we LOVE THE DEVIL!!!!

@ be real – You sound really ridiculous. Maybe you should stop worrying about what goes on in Beyonce’s life, and create one of your own. Seriously, how foolish is it to insult someone else’s intelligence when your grammar and sentence syntax is equivalent to someone still in elementary school?

Well at least she’s good in lip. Synching. Nobody noticed that.

Beyonce must hate her being black. She always wear a wig blonde wig to hide her. True color.

She should come out with her real hair and should be proud of her color

She can’t talk, OR SING! Wonder if she can get pregnant either. Yes, Wendi is 2 faced, but this woman is a true JOKE! Nothing about her is real. Except that she lives off her hubby.
