(Washington, D.C.) It may seem trivial to some but others are very disappointed to learn Beyonce’ lip-synced the National Anthem during the Inauguration Monday.
The U.S. Marine Band has confirmed the much-lauded performance was pre-recorded.
“We don’t know why the decision was made,” U.S. Marine Band spokeswoman Kristen DuBois said. “She did not actually sing.”
The Washingtonian reports Beyonce’ may have given a hint to the recording when she posted a photo Sunday showing her in a recording studio with members of the Marine Corps Band.
Speaking of the band, apparently they too were faking it during the performance.
This is not the first time an Inaugural performer has performed to a recorded track.
