Nailed it or Lip-synched it? Beyoncé on the lip sync Scandal…

Barack Obama Sworn In As U.S. President For A Second Term

Anyone watching the Presidential Inauguration last Monday and watched Beyoncé Knowles perform to sing the National Anthem was in awe after she “nailed” it all the way to the end.

If you remember, towards the end of the song, she had to pull her earpiece out (nobody knows why) and continue on to finish the song.  It was clearly admired and if you looked at Huffington Post’s entry about the performance, it was headlined it as “NAILED IT!” immediately soon after.

But did she really nail it?

Soon afterwards, rumors started flying because of a comment allegedly made by a member of the Marine Corps band that since Beyonce didn’t have time to practice with them, she went and pre-recorded the song.

I’m no expert and I didn’t even notice it until the rumors started flying – and I watched it as it was happening.

Jennifer Lopez, appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, defended Beyoncé. 

“Sometimes it happens when you are in certain stadiums and certain venues and things, they do pre-record stuff because you’re going to have that terrible slapback.”

Aretha Franklin came to Beyoncé‘s defense as well saying:
“I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather…”she told ABC News. “When I heard that I just really cracked up. I thought it was really funny, but she did a beautiful job with the pre-record.”

Steven Tyler had the best response:

“Beyonce’s so hot she can do anything,” he said. “Let’s just get real.”
