Beyonce: Star Mangled Banner

FOR millions watching on television, Beyoncé's soaring rendition of America's national anthem was the highlight of the presidential inauguration.

But the performance was not live. Doubts about the widely-praised performance of The Star-Spangled Banner were raised after some guests noticed that her lips were not perfectly synchronised.

The secret was confirmed by the Marine Corps Band, which provided the backing music for the ceremony and had itself been accused of miming : "We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyoncé was to use the pre-recorded vocal track."
