Looks like Beyonce lip synced the whole national anthem.
"It was the most celebrated rendition of America’s national anthem in a generation, but Beyoncé had left nothing to chance.
Hundreds of thousands who were huddled on the icy Washington Mall erupted in cheers when she hit the notoriously difficult climax of the Star-Spangled Banner. As she ripped out her ear-piece and reached for the peak, the plaudits rushed in from around the world. President Obama was among the first to offer his congratulations with a kiss on the cheek.
Unbeknownst to millions of viewers, however, The Times has learned that the perfect note had been struck in advance: in a recording studio on the eve of Inauguration Day."
Even the Marine corps band was just pretending to play.
"Colonel Michael Colburn was energetically conducting the Marine Corps Band as she performed butWashingtonian magazine reported rumours that band members seemed to be mimicking the action of blowing into their instruments.
“We did pre-record it,” a spokeswoman for the band admitted to The Times last night. “It was Beyoncé’s decision at the last minute to go with the pre-recorded version.”
That's all ok, because Obama and the Democrats are only pretending to govern.
