It was wrong to lip sing. It was a disgrace to the nation and to the President. Deceiving the public isn’t a good thing to do. As a professional, I was appalled. If you’re a performer, you perform. If you can’t do it live – then don’t take the gig.

The marine corp band also used a precorded track.
The fact is Beyonces voice is her instrument, her tool.
She was protecting her money maker cause once that’s gone, that’s it.
She obviously has no other talent.. I.e. goldmember and her makeup commercials.
When ur making millions per song, you do everything you can to make that money train last.
The haters out there obviously don’t live in places where it gwts below freezing. I’m from Wisconsin. . Its hard to talk in the cold, let alone sing. Once that cold hits ur throat, it hurts.
The Marine Corp was protecting their reputation and image by using a recording, why not beyonce?
Props to Kelly Clarkson for singing live and making the right choice for her. Beyonce made the right choice for herself as well.

Haters stop hating. When u have a multi million dollar voice, you can judge.

Well said. Leave her alone. She looked and sounded great — recorded or not. WHO CARES. Well, I know who cares — those with no life!!

those of us who value honesty and professional performances care. There were hundreds of other singers who would have welcomed an opportunity to sing before the nation – live. Apparently, you don’t mind being deceived!

Pretty disappointing that SO MANY OTHER singers that ahem… SING…. would have rocked it!
You have one job…. to sing a song… no one is asking you to write a documentary about yourself, directed by yourself about how you like to… SING…. so… sing right? I mean technically she practically paid Obama to get herself in a position to be invited to sing, that’s what happens when you give someone 4 millions dollars to put them in office… just saying… but “I struggle with how much of myself to reveal”… you must REALLY be struggling! p.s. yes, whitney lip synced so it must be ok…. but whitney also smoked crack…

BeyonPhony… Its for the the President. our Country. To Lipsync?? Why? Not cool to fake that :( Why not just mail in a CD wrapped in fake hair extensions? Thats Beyonce… has she ever even sang live? Who knows, right? Any studio can make anyone sound good. Maybe shes just fake vocals, fake hair… JUST FAKE!!!

Some people are so pitiful. You take one simple thing and run with it. She has sang a cappella on numerous occasions. So get your facts straight before you question the woman’s talents (HATER)! Did it ever dawn on you that maybe she prerecorded it just in case something happened (e.g. sore throat, cold, etc.) and didn’t want to mess up the song on such a special occasion? Stop judging other people and take a look at your own short comings. Everybody has them. If you think she is fake, then don’t support her. Plain and simple.

FAKE IS FAKE–NOT A TRUE ARTIST-IF YOU CANT SING LIVE–STAY IN THE STUDIO WITH THE OTHER MACHINES—IF YOU ARE TO SING LIVE THEN DO SO–DONT GIVE US FAKE LIP SMACKING—-MAKING MILLIONS BY CHEATING AND STEALING—IS SHE EVEN REAL–IS THERE ACTUALLY A PERSON OR SHE JUST A MACHINE WALKING AROUND—

True singers sing the anthem live. It’s such a cop out to lip sync. She may as well have stayed home and let a real singer with a much better voice do the job RIGHT. She sounded weak to me and to show up in person and not sing live is pathetic! BOOOOO!! Kelly rocks!

I don’t know what the big deal is that she lip synced. After all, its her own voice that she did sing she’s not Milli Vanilli for goodness sakes.

Beyonce is an amazing performer and has an amazing voice. Go watch her concerts if you don’t believe. Its awesome that Kelly sung live and she did awesome but Idk why it bothers anyone that she she choose to lip snyc to a recording of her OWN VOICE prob recorded the day before. She prob didnt wanna ruin the amazing moment of the inauguration by her voice cracking cuz the cold . But yall know she can sing. Youre just being haters. And ot the person who said her hair was fake. EVERY person in the industry wears fake hair at some point. And I’m sure your girl Kelly had some too.

Does this woman do anything for real…when ppl question whether or not ur really preggers, then you are in big a trouble. Her hair was fake, she is fake and you btr believe she didn’t know it would get out. Yay Kelly, you sounded fantastic LIVE!

Not everyone lip synchs.. and this wasn’t the super bowl. When she fesses up that she was afraid to f up then it would be okay. Don’t take glory where it isn’t do. Kelly Clarkson I am sure was just as nervous and she had the guts to sing live. I give her a lot more credit.

Whitney did NOT lip sync at the superbowl. Check your facts before you spread lies.
