Beyonce was recently criticized for lip-syncing The Star Spangled Banner. She had been mum about the whole issue, only replying with a picture of herself with the inscription “Can I live?” on her sweater.
She however prove she could sing when she did an acapella rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at a news conference for the super bowl on Thursday and admitted that she sang to a prerecorded track at Obama’s inauguration.
In her words:
“I am a perfectionist and one thing about me: I practice ’till my feet bleed. I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra it was a live television show … Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check… I did not feel comfortable singing live.”
She says that she is prepared and ready to sing at the Super Bowl and will “absolutely be singing live.”
