Reports Confirm Beyonce Lip-Synced President’s Inaugural Ceremony

(AllHipHop News) Amidst the festivities of President Barack Obama’s second inauguration, reports are surfacing that during the President’s ceremony yesterday, Beyonce lip-synced the “Star Spangled Banner” to a pre-recorded track.

According to Page Six of the New York Post,  a band member in the U.S. Marine band spilled the beans about the behind the scenes details on Beyonce’s hyped up performance.

“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, a rep for the United States Marine Band told Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”

While the news of a lip synched performance comes as a shock to many  in the online world , it’s not uncommon for inaugural performances to be pre-recorded.

According to DuBois, all music for inaugural ceremonies is pre-recorded as a precaution.

“That’s something we’ve done for years and years. The Marine Band did perform live throughout the ceremony but we received last-minute word that Beyoncé wanted to use the recording.”

Beyonce has yet to comment on the situation, but she did post photos on her Instagram, just days before the performance as she prepared a pre-recorded version of the national anthem (pictured below)

    Damn, she might as well sat that one out then. I mean she’s got the super bowl so she coulda just let someone else sing it. She got time to promote her new album later. Its not like there’s a lot of competition in the music industry anyways.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

  • Mike Swiff

    LMAO ok if she did “who cares” Im not a big Beyonce fan I could careless if she sang frying chicken in a video-would we be saying the same thing if Christina Aguilera Lip Synced? Lets not be stupid people I don’t think I’ve every seen anything where Beyonce isn’t Synced… lets stop “acting” like Bee got chopz…she don’t! (oh and for your clownz that looooooooooooove Beyonce she wil be Lipped Synced at the super bowl as well! (most of you Bee fans are only going to watch the bowl for her anyway!) smh.

    • Mike Swiff

      OOOOOH yeah you guys are the same clownz that ride Rihanna and this chick NEVER sings live on nothing not even in the studio! (lol) and you clownz chirp with every song she makes and buy every CD this fool puts out! So what Beyonce Lip Syncs!

  • Tony G.

    Its amazing that all u clowns are on here talking about Bey..yet would smash in a heartbeat (unless ur sexuality proves otherwise)….as stated in the article…music is always pre-recorded..so even if she wasnt singng live..she still sang the song at some point…get off ur high mighty horses like ur life is worth something and stop always downing ur people…

  • I’m sorry but Beyonce is legendary…She is the queen, she can do what she wants to do….She has earned her stripes…..This is when the media start to hate on you and you begin to loose your sex appeal, after giving birth….The media likes you young and sexy and all over the place, the minute you give birth then your career starts to dwindle.

    Everybody on the payroll, they all work for the same people. Pay attention. How Jay-Z gon’ flash triangles and Lucifer skulls in his videos? Rhianna (Jay-Z’s Artist, basically) does it too. Kanye be on that sh*t too. Beyonce is married to Jay-Z. She be on that sh*t too. Then they be hangin’ out wit the President? You can get mad if you want to but who the f**k would do that sh*t for publicity, negative publicity, publicity that’s alleging you of being a satanist, luciferian, sell-out? That’s why they hide that sh*t in their videos, and then people find it and then they deny it but keep puttin’ sh*t in every video but in a more sneaky way, like makin’ music videos outdoors instead of in front of a green screen for the majority of the video. I don’t know none of these people personally but the way they continue to do sh*t is f**ked up, I ain’t feelin’ that sh*t. I understand a lot about what’s goin’ on in the world, so I’m just sayin this because it’s so obvious but ain’t nobody realizin’ the deception and/or the bigger picture. If Jay-Z into Satan/Lucifer then Beyonce is too, Kanye, Rhianna and everybody else that associates with them and that’s why Rick Ross said that to do a song with him you gotta be initiated. But initiated into what? So why the President lettin’ these type of artists be in his presence and/or perform for him? Because he’s a part of it too. If I’m wrong, forgive me, but I don’t think I am.

      Man, you sound like Sam Jack’s character in DJANGO UNCHAINED….questioning why our black president would hang around other black people. Black people should be ashamed at the way we look to tear each other down. Secret Orders have long existed in this world and many everyday people are associated with them. Let’s start with your neighborhood police, and fireman, school teachers, professors, your local physicians (doctors), your united states military. Along with a great deal of people who have completed higher learning (college) around the world. Now, are they all good? Do they mean well? In America you live in a system that has been built around secret orders and the practice has an origin in Africa. The many mind building institutions of this world were formed and many remain as part of secret orders. Initiation starts with simple enrollment and employment to many public and private schools and later career paths we seek around the world. Yes, and many don’t realize the hidden consequence of acquiring dominance and power in this global society. So the new thing is to label publicly successful black people or people of color as satan worshipers? And now another excuse as to why we as a people should not seek and strive to have our own. You must overstand that it is essential that black people begin to better understand the inner workings of global corporate and political power, if nothing else to educate ourselves to the not so obvious objectives of the traditional keepers of global power around the world. How do we combat an enemy you do not understand. Know thy enemy and stop hating yourself and people who look like you, DENIGGAFY yourself!

        I don’t hate our people. It’s just a lot of negativity going on. I’ve been researching the things that I speak on very carefully. I represent God. My purpose isn’t to point fingers at these people just to destroy their character, it’s to make people realize the bigger picture.
