Whoops! A new video of Beyonce forgetting to lip-sync during a Sept. 12 concert in Paris has surfaced, proving that even Queen Bey isn’t so perfect. Watch it here!
During a Paris performance of “Partition,” as part of her On The Run tour with husband Jay Z, Beyonce, 33, dropped low to greet a few excited fans in the pit on Sept. 12, but she stopped mouthing off the lyrics, as a vocal track continued to play in the background.

The Instagram video was posted by flowpest, who witnessed the lip-sync fail firsthand.
After the major stage flub, Queen Bey quickly snapped the microphone back to her lips, whipped her hair, and continued her mission of taking over the world.
Despite the snafu, we can’t help but feel bad for Beyonce. She must be exhausted after performing 20 shows since June.
However, this isn’t the first time Beyonce has been accused of lip-syncing.

At the time, Beyonce said, “Well, I am a perfectionist. And one thing about it is that I practice until my feet bleed. I did not have time to practice with the orchestra. Due to the weather, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. I decided to sing along with my recorded track, which is a common practice in the industry. It was one of my proudest moments. I am very proud of my performance.”
Beyonce also sang the National Anthem live during the press conference. At the close of the song, she asked, “Any questions?”
It’s pretty clear that Beyonce can sing, with or without a vocal track, so we couldn’t care less if she lip-synced. But, of course, we want to know how YOU feel!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should singers be allowed to lip-sync?
