Amidst the festivities of President Barack Obama’s second inauguration, reports are surfacing that during the President’s ceremony yesterday, Beyonce lip-synced the “Star Spangled Banner” to a pre-recorded track.
“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, a rep for the United States Marine Band 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.”
While the news of a lip synched performance comes as a shock to many in the online world , it’s not uncommon for inaugural performances to be pre-recorded.
According to DuBois, all music for inaugural ceremonies is pre-recorded as a precaution.
“That’s something we’ve done for years and years. The Marine Band did perform live throughout the ceremony but we received last-minute word that Beyoncé wanted to use the recording.”
