After getting a ton of flak for singing over a pre-recorded version of the National Anthem for President Obama’s inauguration, Beyonce wanted to let everyone know that it wasn’t for a lack of talent. As you’ll recall, Beyonce stunned the crowd in attendance for the inaugural ceremony, but later received a backlash of negativity after it was found that she didn’t actually sing live.
So to prove her point that she does have talent, Beyonce held a press conference ahead of her Super Bowl half-time show. She sang a phenomenal live rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner”, thus silencing her detractors once and for all. You can watch the video of her performance below:
From the AP’s video description:
Beyonce opened her press conference in New Orleans with a live rendition of the national anthem. The singer, who’s performing at the Super Bowl, admitted that she did lip sync on Inauguration Day.
She proudly ended her performance asking all in attendance, “Any questions?” What did you think of her pre-recorded Inaugural performance? Do you think that her performance at this press conference makes up for the fact that she opted not to sing live for the President on the day of his Inauguration?
