Beyonce Lip-sync Scandal: Celebrities React To National Anthem Drama
Beyoncé’s reputation has been tarnished a bit after lip-syncing the US national anthem at President Obama’s second inauguration.
The pop star’s lip-syncing scandal has dominated the coverage on cable TV news in the past 24 hours.
After receiving great reviews for her performance, it was later revealed that the diva used a pre-recorded version of the “Star-Spangled Banner” instead of performing it live.
Beyoncé has not yet reacted to the controversy and has focused instead on rehearsing for the Feb 3 Super Bowl halftime show.
Michelle Williams and Aretha Franklin have come to her defense telling the world that what she has done is a common practice in the music industry and she should not be held to a different standard.
Whitney Houston who performed one of the most admired renditions of the national anthem in history also lip-synced in 1991 at the Super Bowl.
