But her earrings weren't, they were worth 1.8 million. Her and a bunch of the other 1% partied till dawn, probably on our tax dollars.

Re: even oblamos singer was a fake

Why don't you guys find something really important to complain about.


"All inaugural music is pre-recorded in case weather conditions or other circumstances could interrupt the program.


A source very familiar with the situation tells CBS News that Beyonce performed the national anthem live, but she pre-recorded a track of the song to sing over. The source said this is a standard performing practice.


The source added that her microphone was on and her voice was audible and the pre-recorded track was for backup/safety purposes.


A public information officer for the Marine Corps told CBS News: "The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) requested that the Marine Band accompany Beyonce Knowles-Carter in the performance of the Star-Spangled Banner at the 2013 Inaugural Ceremony. However, there was no opportunity for Ms. Knowles-Carter to rehearse with the Marine Band before the Inauguration so it was determined that a live performance by the band was ill-advised for such a high-profile event. Each piece of music scheduled for performance in the Inauguration is pre-recorded for use in case of freezing temperatures, equipment failure, or extenuating circumstances. Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter's vocal performance, no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded."


A representative for Beyonce did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Kelly Clarkson's representative said she sang live to perform "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." A rep for James Taylor also confirmed he sang "America the Beautiful" live.


The use of a recording is typical in big events. In 2009, cellist Yo-Yo Ma was questioned about "hand-syncing" for Obama's first inauguration. Ma said instruments weren't functioning properly in sub-freezing weather.


Even in good conditions, producing good sound can be a challenge in a large open space.


Some artists choose to lip-sync. Whitney Houston's memorable performance of the national anthem in 1991 at the Super Bowl was sung to a track."
