Beyonce was on a mission today to PROVE she can sing the national anthem like a pro – belting out a LIVE version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” moments ago on TV … without the help of a backing track … and she KILLED IT.
Beyonce was at the news conference for her upcoming Super Bowl halftime show when she launched into the impromptu performance — and when she finished the song, she simply said, “Any questions?”
During the conference, Bey was asked about the lip-syncing situation at the Presidential Inauguration last week, and she admitted she used a backing track — claiming, “I am a perfectionist … I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra [at the Inauguration]. It was a live television show and a very important moment for me.”
