Was Beyoncé lip synching the "Star Spangled Banner" at the inauguration?
The magazine says Beyoncé used pre-recorded vocals and music.
Beyoncé pre-recorded the National Anthem the day before the inauguration. She even posted photos of the recording session to her Instagram account.
The Marine Corps band accompanied Beyoncé, and a spokesman says, "We received last-minute word that Beyoncé wanted to use the recording...We don't know why Beyoncé decided to use prerecorded music."
The band actually mimicked playing their instruments when the anthem was played during the live Inaugural ceremony.
