An inaugural official who asked not to be identified told CNN Wednesday that pop star Beyonc233; lip-synced her performance on Inauguration Day.
"She did not sing live," the official told CNN. A pre-recording of the artist's rendition of the National Anthem was played instead. What was heard by spectators and viewers was the sound of that recording, according to the official.
The official said Beyoncé made the decision herself the night before Inauguration Day.
Quick Clicks Famous lip-syncers caught in the act Beyoncé arrived so late Sunday night she did not have time to rehearse with the U.S. Marine Band, which was asked to accompany the pop star's performance, according to the inauguration official.
"Because she didn't have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band," the official added. "It was all Beyoncé."
The official was somewhat puzzled by Beyoncé's decision, noting when she made the pre-recording, "she was spot on."
She recorded her part separately from the band and her rendition was married with the band's music, the official said.
The taped performance should take nothing away from her skills as a live artist, the official said. "She's actually a very good live singer," the official added.
CNN has still not received comment from Beyoncé.

Who cares? We didn’t watch, listen or care about the whole affair.
Couldn’t watch. Had my flu shot, and I didn’t want to take any chances.
What a great distraction from Obama’s homo speech...Almost like it was planned.
Apparently, even a Marine Corps spokesman has been corrupted and co-opted by Obamatons:
Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf says no one in the band is in a position to know whether Beyonce’s vocal performance was live or pre-recorded.
Bouncy Carter Knowles is too good to practice with the Presidents band.
Say, what’s a Beyonce’?
Fake singing by a fake star for a fake president.
Ask not what you can do for your country.
Another proud moment for February!
CNN hasn’t received a comment from Queen Diva Beyonce. As IF she’s going to say anything. How could she possibly bring herself to be honest after being such a phony in front of millions of people. She’s disappointing in so many ways.
Why didn’t she just do what Obama does by reading the lyrics off a teleprompter?
This is at least the 2nd thread you started on this earth shaking news. Since it will be covered by at least 98 more newspapers, we are looking forward to seeing the next 98 threads you start.
Kelly Clarkson didn’t lip synch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3LYZlDwRJ4
OK. I gotta know. What’s the big deal???? Let me guess. The media (and some dupes) want to discuss Beyoncé. Why? It’s a good way to draw attention from the confrontational content of President Obama’s speech! The president apparently plans to double down on everything he did wrong in his first term, and we’re outraged that Beyoncé prerecorded the anthem? Seriously?
I guess this news helps distract the low-information voters away from that lesser known personality, Mr. Ben Ghazi.
I would make a small wager, she didn’t know the words, so went with the version sung with words in front of her.
FAKE singing of the National Anthem. FAKE birth certificate. FAKE selective service card. FAKE President.
and a FAKE Inagaural...
and she has to show at the Super Bowl next month...
In keeping with the Food Stamp President’s administration’s policy of “fake but accurate”.
Can we be deadly serious here for just a moment?
