Beyoncé Sings the National Anthem at Super Bowl Press Conference [Video]

Beyoncé

Following the lip-syncing controversy at President Obama’s inauguration, Beyoncé silenced her haters by singing live during Thursday’s Super Bowl press conference. Bey walked on stage in a white dress and before even answering a question, she belted out the National Anthem live.

“Any questions?” she laughed after wowing with her rendition.

She also addressed the lip-syncing rumors once and for all. “I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track,” she told reporters. “I’m very proud of my performance.”

    @Kwayzee, It’s too late now. She robbed the band of their once in a lifetime performance, air tromboning sigh, and when someone is billed to do a live performance, I feel that’s what they are obligated to give people. You don’t think she did this for free do you?

    @Kwayzee, Everyone knew she had the ability, however she still deceived the viewers, sorry too little too late, don’t stand up there with all the hand motions, theatrics if you are indeed lipsyncing. This only proved that she could and should have done it for the President.

    @really, I doubt the president is bothered by this, considering he knows what she sounds like. It was frigid. I don’t blame her for declining to sing live. Oh, and the hand motions/theatrics are what make PERFORMERS who they are.

    @really, ok the term lip singing is being incorrectly used because she did actually sing over her pre recorded track. There was an actual live mic and sound was actually coming from her therefore it was still a live performance. Also, whenever you go to a concert there are always backing tracks in every chorus of a song that performers sing over. Even sometimes when they have backup singers. Lets stop the hate, and move toward understanding a bit more.

    @Mb92, I think she made it live… because she is or was always enthusiastic and energetic and I was impressed by her zeal.

    @really, REALLY? Did she ever say before she sung, this is LIVE. She never addressed it til’ now.

    People can never give this woman credit for being the KING that she is. RESPECT HER TALENT! Like her or not.

    really Reply:

    @Robyn, I actually like her a great deal, purchased her albums and watched her live in concert. She might not have stated she was singing live, but her body language sure implied it. I was disappointed but it is what it is and I am ready to move on to SB sunday.

    @really, She WAS singing live. She didn’t LIP the actual prerecorded version she sang along WITH it. BIG difference between the two!

    Thetruth Reply:

    @Niall, stop yawning and take your ass to sleep. Why are you on here being negative. You have so many other options. She just said she decided to sing ALONG WITH the prerecording so the hand motions and everything were real. It is VERY common for a singer to sing ALONG WITH their prerecorded track due to certain circumstances. Really, if she went up there and didn’t breathe a word, who GIVES A FUCK???? It’s her voice and your recording wouldn’t sound anywhere near her’s. sorry this is so long y’all just make no sense sometimes. Good day.

    @Bea, Only haters still care about that. She sang to her own live vocals. AND as proven by the video, there was no studio magic, AND she could clearly have duplicated what was heard that day, live.

    Just saw this. So damn proud of her. Detractors have brown this whole thing out of proportion. What singer, especially one of her caliber, is going to want to sing live in those temperatures? Beyonce wasn’t pulling a Milli Vanilli, it was HER damn voice. Everyone not living under a rock knows the woman can sing!

    Don’t let these hoes take your shine, baby!

    What exactly is she trying to prove. I mean come on, everyone knows she can sing like no other but that inauguration performance was 100% pre recorded and was confirm by multiple credible sources. But who cares if it was lip synced or not, the girl is a power house and it was her voice…so why is she doing this again?

    [Reply]

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @Meme, because people are attacking her integrity as a performer, that’s why she did it. i’ve always admired her ability to turn a cheek to alot of the foolish gossip people spread about her on a personal level. i can even understand her not addressing pitiful & pathetic rumors that she didn’t really “have” blue ivy. BUT when you start insulting & assaulting my integrity when it comes to my talent, my wheelhouse BITCH, I WILL SHUT YOU DOWN! and that’s exactly why she what she did @ the press conference. as a performer, the ONLY thing she owes the public is good music & stunning performances & she delivers time & time again. now if she were a rihanna, a kim kardashian, a chris brown, a justin beiber … you know these “celebrities” that post EVERY minute of their lives on twitter for the sake of their “career” then that would be one thing however she has ALWAYS been private about her personal life. #goodbye

    @Meme, I completely get what you’re saying but some people don’t look at it the way you do ..
    They see it as an opportunity to down play every accomplishment she’s ever achieved . People even tried to use the performance to down play Obama’s second term . Sad .

    Well, I attended President Obama’s inauguration with my boyfriend so I can attest to the fact that temperatures were very harsh and therefore do not fault Beyonce for having a pre-recorded track. I am still grateful for the opportunity of being able to see her, period (as we had a pretty decent view), so I’m not one of those bitching about what she did and did not do. Black people can be such crabs in a barrel sometimes.

  22. Yep

    If Beyonce lip synced this performance who cares? She can really sing,the inauguration was not the first time she sung the national anthem. She did her thing no matter what. I dont understand why people made it a big deal smh. Like she said at the end of the day it is about the president not her.

    [Reply]

  23. JJ

    Omg!!! Live or not who gives a shit!! The inauguration was another day to go down in history and people made it into a debate over Beyonce lip synching instead of celebrating Obama and the fact she was invited to perform. Lemme know how y’all got her to put you on payroll cuz you have to be getting a check to be that damn pressed or concerned. Get a life. Sheesh!!

  28. flawda

    The only people who have/had a problem with Beyonce’s singing at the inauguration where people who were looking for a reason to have a problem with her. We’ve seen this girl sing the national anthem live before at the Superbowl a few years back.

    The sad thing about this is it’s her own people (black people) who are the biggest crabs in a bucket.

    [Reply]

  29. You Thought It I Post It

    OMG not this again, another national anthem performance? Beyonce you lip-synced it over in the past everyone know you can sing live so what was the point of this performance at a conference? This was unnecessary! I know Beyonce and her team are increasing the anticipation to her Superbowl performance and the Superbowl itself but has been and still is a Beyonce overload soon we will overdose! This is why sometimes it’s bittersweet when she returns to the seen because she’s everywhere, what is she trying to do turns us off! There’s so much we can digest at a time not to mention the media and blogs making it worse!

    I cannot wait until the Superbowl to be over smt i forgot she has that documentary and coming out with an album! I’m truly exhausted reading and hearing about her i mean she has become bigger than the show!

  37. Aliciasahomewrecka

    The problem is, no one questioned Beyonce’s ability to sing. This is why people could not understand why she lip-synched in the first place. Does she not get that??? I said it before and she said it in so many words: she didn’t make time to rehearse. People were upset about it all because since she didn’t put in the time to give an authentic performance, and when I say authentic I mean live vocals AND live music like everyone else did…she could have declined the invitation and allow someone else to do it. I don’t care if it’s common place in the industry. You can’t call yourself “Queen” or “King” and expect people to expect you to settle for common place antics. She just said in GQ magazine that she works harder than anyone she knows in the industry. Then of all the acts that performed for the President SHE should have been the main one giving an authentic performance. Any questions??
