Beyonce sings National Anthem live at Super Bowl XLVII press conference [video]


More of Beyonce taking over at the Super Bowl. During her press conference, Beyonce opened by singing the National Anthem Live. After which she simply asked, “any questions?”



During the conference, Bey was asked about the lip-syncing situation, and she admitted she used a backing track — responding, “I am a perfectionist … I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra [at the Inauguration]. It was a live television show and a very important moment for me.”

Beyonce added, “Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk … so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.”

A reporter then asked Beyonce if she planned to sing live at the Super Bowl, and she replied vaguely, “I always sing live” … but she didn’t say whether she planned to use a backing track as well.

Beyonce has a great strategist in her corner. Tackling the problem with talent and not waiting for the inevitable questions. She also said that she’s been rehearsing for her Super Bowl performance for months. I am SO READY for Miss Beyonce.


That’s how you make an exit.
