Did Beyonce Lip-Sync 'Star-Spangled Banner'?Popular YouTube channel, Bad Lip Reading (B.L.R.), is once again in the spotlight after creating a parody of Beyonce Knowles lip-syncing the National Anthem at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama.

As previously reported by NewsOne, media, fans and foe of the pop diva worked themselves into a tizzy upon the discovery that Knowles chose to sing over a pre-recorded track instead of singing live for such a momentous occasion.

“We did prerecord it and it was Beyoncé’s decision at the last minute to go with the prerecorded version,” United States Marine Band representative, Kristin DuBois, confirmed to Times of London. “We prerecorded all music as a matter of course and have done since time immemorial,” she said. “This is our 54th inauguration .… There is no question of there not being any music — it’s not because the performer cannot do it.”

“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” DuBois said to Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know the reason why.”

Everyone from Aretha Franklin to Anderson Cooper weighed in on the “issue,” as conflicting reports began to emerge. Did she or didn’t she,  and to what extent? Did she at least sing over the track or did she just mouth the words? Various media outlets ping-ponging from one statement to the other until the final word came from CNN, that she did, in fact, lip-sync.

While fans defend her and critics bash her, B.L.R, who has tackled everything from political debates to movie scenes, steps into fray without perhaps the most relevant addition to the conversation: “La Fway.”

With hilarious lyrics sang perfectly in sync with Beyonce’s mouth movements, it didn’t take long for B.L.R.’s video to become a YouTube sensation.

Whichever side one falls on Bey-augural Gate, one has to admit, this is pretty funny!
