President Barack Obama was sworn in as President for the second time on Monday January 21st, 2013.  The inauguration event was star studded with performances from Kelly Clarkson, James Taylor, and a spirited rendition of the National Anthem from Beyoncé.  Reports are now emerging that Beyonce lip synced her performance.

United States Marine Band rep Kristin DuBois told Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”  Earlier in the day, Beyoncé posted a photo to her Instagram account holding the sheet music to “The Star Spangled Banner” in a recording studio.

One of the most celebrated National Anthem performances was by Whitney Houston at the 1991 Super Bowl.  This performance was also lip synced.

Here is Beyoncé’s performance at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration Ceremony.
