VIDEO: Beyoncé Sings National Anthem Live at Super Bowl Press Conference

February 1st, 2013

Two things happened earlier today: Beyonce admitted at a press conference in New Orleans that she lip-synched The Star Spangled Banner at President Obama’s inauguration and then she proceed to silence her critics by singing it live right then and there.

“Any questions?” the Grammy-award-winner superstar asked afterwards. Watch the amazing video for yourself below – she kills it. In a very classy way, I might add.

While most never actually doubted Queen B’s singing abilities (I certainly didn’t! I love Beyonce and it didn’t matter to me either way), some questioned why someone with such a powerful voice used a backtrack for such an important event.

She explained, ”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.”

I think it’s time to leave this in the past and look towards the future, this Sunday, more specifically. The entire country is waiting to see Beyonce’s Superbowl Halftime Show.. myself included!

Will you be tuning in to watch Beyonce this weekend?
