Beyonce Admits to Lip Syncing the National Anthem

Beyonce gave an impromptu rendition of the national anthem at the news conference about the Super Bowl halftime show in a bid to end all speculations about her lip syncing at the Presidential inauguration. She admitted that she had sung along a pre-recorded track to avoid any glitches at such an important event.

When asked if she did really lip sync on the Inauguration day, she said, "Typically, they have you sing a pre-recorded track, so I did sing along with the pre-recorded track," reports the Huffington Post. The singer called the day emotional as well as taxing and said that she wanted to make the performance special and perfect for the President.

"Due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk," Beyonce added. "It was about the president and the inauguration, and I wanted to make him and my country proud, 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."

But she also promised that her Super Bowl performance will raise no such issues. "I will absolutely be singing live. I am well-rehearsed and I will be singing live. This is what I was born to do," the 31-year-old clarified.

The singer will be taking centre stage during halftime at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Feb. 3 and with this her name will be inscribed along with celebs like Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Enrique Iglesias and Aerosmith who have performed at the popular event.
