Last night, Beyoncé received mass appraisal from critics and fellow celebs for her ‘amazing’ rendition of ‘The Star Spangled Banner’. The singer “belted” out the national anthem at President Barack Obama‘s inauguration yesterday afternoon. It was beautifully sung of course, except, she didn’t sing it live, according to The Times and NY Post.
A spokeswoman for the Marine Corp Band said that it was “standard procedure” to record a backing track. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s peer Kelly Clarkson was applauded for singing 100% live and slaying. Well yikes, talk about putting a dampener on such a triumphant evening!
