Beyonce stole the show during President Obama’s
inauguration on Monday, but was it fake? A spokeswoman for the Marine Corps
Band revealed that Beyonce and the band both faked it for her
performance, while they went live for the other artists that decided to
actually sing, like Kelly Clarkson.
The spokesperson said that no one in the Marine Corp band was ‘in a
position to assess’ whether or not Beyonce did it live or went with a
pre-recorded track but she decided to have the band use the pre-recorded
music because they didn’t have enough time to rehearse.
Now of course, everyone knows that Beyonce can sing but singing at the President’s inauguration while 40mil are watching
is the biggest gig of their career. You can listen to pre-recorded
stuff all the time on the radio, when you see a performance, you expect
it to be live.
