Beyonce’s Lip-Synching Hasn’t Actually Upset Her Fans

So, Beyonce lip-synched “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Presidential Inauguration on Monday and now the public can’t seem to get over it. Or can they? Truth be told, Beyonce’s fans and the general public don’t seem too upset by news that Bey sang-a-long to a backing track she’d recording earlier. On the other hand, every morning show in America continues to dedicate time to re-examining the topic, while most others seem ready to move on. See some reactions below.

Whitney Houston’s rendition of the national anthem (regarded as the greatest we’ve ever heard from her) in 1991 was also lip-synched, and somehow we’ve managed to move past that.

From Twitter:

@drinlow: Who cares whether Beyonce lip-synced at the inauguration. It was her voice and it was beautiful. Move on folks.
