She is just a scale singer. They can make her sound any way they want in back tracking. Of course, people like this for some reason think they have accomplished something by cheating.
How appropriate that a fake rendition of the National Anthem be rendered at the Inauguration of a fake President - and a fake American to boot.
Is of no importance to me. Didn’t watch it live. Won’t watch it on tape. The TV didn’t budge off of ESPN and other non-news channels yesterday. I had no desire to see anything I ate yesterday twice.
Rats. Now Kanye will have to crash Taylor Swift’s next award presentation to give props to Beyonce again.
And since Hussein’s not looking for votes this time, the “jackass” will be the White Hut’s special guest at the Wednesday taxpayer-funded bash afterwards.
Shows like this are always pre-recorded to avoid mistakes...
So is the superbowl
I thought you might find this amusing.
who cares what that skanky ho sung or didn’t sing to her butt boy Obama.
No. She pulled the reader out of ear after being restrained and let it all out.
Loved her rendition and she is one hot woman.
You are right. It is far more common than people realize.
I’ll have to watch the video a couple-hundred times, then I’ll let you know.
I have know members of “the Presidents Own Marine Corps Band, I do not believe they would do this. It is not uncommon for a singer in a public event like this to have a backup voice on tape while singing. But it is wrong to insult the marines just because the president is a bozo. These are not fake marines, they go though the same training as all marines and deserve more respect than to be accused of faking it.
I don’t get why this is news. Let alone, big news.
I’m not sure about Beyonce, but it’s clear that Obama lip-synched caring about the national anthem.
The song needs a re-write anyway. We’re not going to be the “land of the free” much longer, and as for “home of the brave” ...
By the time 2016 rolls around I think the National Anthem will be “I want my MTV.”
I try not to listen or watch, and if they are lurking, and horse they rode in on, for being in sink with his neuvo-facism.
Didn’t Vanessa Williams do this at a sporting event once (where the single was already recorded to be released after “the public demand”)? Sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s?
Didn’t see her performance ..but Kelly Clarkson sure belted it out ....was definitely NOT lip synched.
Fake song, fake ceremony. Just as well since the woman can’t sing. Her voice is on par with a dull file sliding over the edge of a piece of tin.
FR really needs a ‘Like’ button :-)
None of these people can sing, they just gargle phony pathos in that strained melisma-heavy American Idol style. It’s a blight.
Lip Sync-fest with Beyonce’ lip-syncing a song and Obama lip-syncing a teleprompter.
Yes, even live tv is fake and produced . .
Was there a Fly-By? If so then she has to have it recorded and start at a certain time. The pilots turn in for the Fly-By at the point in the timing when the singer hits the home of the brave.
The top 10 plays are the top 10 plays because they’re fun to watch. Makes no matter what color it is of the guy making the play.
I’m sick of Obama, sick of the fawning media, and sick of politics at this moment. But please don’t drag this down into some racist muck. I’m just not in the mood. To be blunt.... shove it.
Hey can ya tell me who's gonna win? I need some big bucks...................
LOL With the technology they have they can make me sing well and I sound worse than that girl.
Exclusive: Beyoncé lip-synched Star Spangled Banner at inauguration
“Shove it” — based solely upon the post to which you responded?!
Ah, but then I took a moment to read many of your recent posts.
I think FR is done.
Does this really matter? I think not. It is very common for performers to record performances (even of the Star Spangled Banner) in advance to mitigate potential problems that can arise during the live performance. The cold weather and other factors could lead to a less than desirable vocal performance.
We need to choose our battles and not be out here making fools of ourselves by pointing out something so insignificant and truly unimportant. It makes us all look petty. Come on?!?
A lot of great performers have pre-recorded the Star Spangled Banner for large events. Whitney Houston, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and many more pre-recorded it for their Superbowl performances.
The criticism of Beyonce is justified, but criticism of the band IS NOT.
The performance was SUPPOSED to be live.
Beyonce did not show up for rehearsal with the band as scheduled. So at the last minute she decides she wants to lip synch it. So the band has to spend Sunday evening until late in the recording studio laying down the track with her.
Then the band members have to report for duty at 4 AM on Monday morning to assemble for the inauguration.
After sitting all morning at the inauguration, the band was required to assemble at 1:30 PM for the parade. They stood for three hours waiting for the parade to start. All the marchers stood and waited in the cold for that long - little kids, high schoolers, etc.
The parade was delayed for an hour or more because the luncheon went overtime due to the long winded gasbag speakers and all the time allotted to wardrobe changes, hair, make up, etc.
The band members are consummate professionals and follow orders to a T without a complaint.
**ding**ding** Winner! The post that says it all!
Get a room
...nothing so far.
Maybe because I wasn’t surprised by the Milli-Vanilli “scandal”? The Monkees? The Ed Sullivan Show? Queen performing Bohemian Rhapsody “live”?
Yeah, shove it. Does EVERYTHING here have to be racial? ESPN is picking the top 10 plays now because of the color of the guy making the play? yeah... right.
I can’t stand Obama because he’s an arrogant prick who has no clue how the free market works, and would rather drag everyone down to a government-mandated level of shared mediocrity and misery instead of letting individuals succeed and prosper. He’s a nightmare for the country. I couldn’t care less what color he is.
If I recall, Yo Yo Ma was faking it at the last inauguration due to the extreme cold and the effect it has on his cello......
So sick of singers that can’t actually sing. Beyonce sounds like a goat singing through a box fan. Taylor Swift can’t hit a note live. Both are studio manufactured products. My daughter is near pitch perfect and makes me cry every time she sings the anthem.
He is the Color Purple
I didn’t know that. Even their guest fake it.
Alright, since you brought it up, please demonstate how ESPN’s top 10 “plays of the day” have a skew towards black athletes?
Or are you just throwing crap against the wall because you have nothing?
Saw that and I’m trying to open the site but it loads slower than a herd of arthritic turtles stricken with emphysema ....
Guess she did fake it and so did the band.
Must be pretty disappointing in bed.
Still, I’d hit it just to find out.
This afternoon, a spokesman for the Marine Corps band revealed that she was indeed lip syncing to their studio pre-recorded national anthem........
There was nothing to rehearse and there was no last minute decision to lip synch since her singing of the NA had already been pre-recorded in a sound studio with the USMC band.....
As a side note, how do you expect these public performances, along with Super Bowl entertainers, to provide sound studio quality acoustics in an open air public venue? They can't, it's impossible.
