Beyonce's Blarney: She Lip Synced N'tl Anthem!

Everyone was raving about Beyonce's rendition of The Star Bangled Banner yesterday.
The plaudits ranged from "spectacular" to "magical" to "f**king unbelievable!"
Turns out the last one was correct.
It was all quite unbelievable because Beyonce wasn't singing live. She pre-recorded the whole thing with the Marine Band and then lip-synced it.
This has now all been confirmed by the venerable Times of London and several other news outlets.
"We don't know why Beyoncé decided to use prerecorded music," a spokesperson for the Marine Band told The Washingtonian this morning. "All music [for inaugural ceremonies] is prerecorded as a matter of course, and that's something we've done for years and years. The Marine Band did perform live throughout the ceremony but we received last-minute word that Beyonce wanted to use the recording."
Our theory: The event, the crowd, the guests, the overwhelming nature of it all scared Beyonce out of doing it live. She couldn't do it.
