Did Beyonce lip-synch or not? That’s the question.
Reports Global Grind:
Beyonce’s performance of the National Anthem during President Barack Obama’s Inauguration on Monday was surrounded by controversy, after reports came out that Bey lip-synched her performance.
Master Sgt. Kristin DuBois of the U.S. Marine Band told numerous outlets yesterday that Bey requested to use a “pre-recording” of her voice for the National Anthem and that she “did not actually sing.” Kristin also added that “we don’t know why the decision was made.” She also added that using pre-recordings were not uncommon.
However, after making these claims, a Marine Corps. spokesperson spoke out and started to backpedal…somewhat. The spokesperson said:
“Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter’s vocal performance. No one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded.”
The spokesperson did confirm, however, that the music was pre-recorded, saying:
“There was no opportunity for Ms. Knowles-Carter to rehearse with the Marine Band before the Inauguration so it was determined that a live performance by the band was ill-advised for such a high-profile event.”
OK, just to clarify: the Marines can’t confirm if Beyonce lip-synched or not, but they can confirm that the music behind was pre-recorded. Got it.
