New Video Shows Beyonce Both Sang and Lip Synched


Airdate: 01/24/2013

A new video of Beyoncé surfaced that seems to prove that she did in fact sing the national anthem at the inauguration.

The Wall Street Journal obtained the video, on which you can hear audio directly from Beyoncé's microphone. You also hear a second track that has been prerecorded. 

US Weekly magazine quotes a source close to Beyoncé as saying, "She did sing, but used a track. She didn't think there was anything wrong with it. Pavarotti has done it! It was freezing out, and if she messed up just one note, that would have been the story."

INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney showed the new video to audio engineer Tom Gardner of The Cutting Room Studios in New York. He said give Beyoncé a break.

McInerney asked, "What is the purpose of her singing live to a pre-recorded track."

"The purpose really is for her to lip synch successfully. I'm surprised that it's blown up this much because I think it happens all the time," Gardner said.

We all know how talented Beyoncé is, but if a singer needs a little help, there is magic that can be done in a recording studio. McInerney tried her best to sing and test the magic of a recording studio. But, no amount of technology can make McInerney sound like Beyoncé.
