She has one of music’s most angelic voices but, for the first time, thanks to an inauguration lip-syncing scandal, the nearly angelic image that has followed music superstar Beyonce throughout her career is taking a hit.

No sooner had the inauguration balls ended than the post-inauguration buzz surrounding Beyonce’s star-spangled serenade in front of the first family and a worldwide TV audience was quickly overshadowed by questions of whether The Queen Bey really belted it out.

    We all know Beyonce has an Awesome voice ! We have so many serious problems too worry about in this country why care about something small like lip-syncing ? Besides I'm sure she had her reasons if she did.

    We can always tell when news is slow when the media has nothing more to do but worry about lip syncing, fake girlfriends, and other fluff stuff that amounts to zip,zero, and zilch, to the majority of the sane populous. Ok folks turn off the stupid or change the channel the idiots are trying to dumb us down and those that find this news need to relocate to the asylum. ABC has ran this story since Monday. They need to get a grip.

    I do, but they all pretty much do it, so I can't be biased. If I wouldn't be upset at others, I can't be upset at her. I should note that I lost respect for her not long ago, so it doesnt really matter what I think of her at this point.

    She was paid a lot of money to sing live during the inauguration. If she is a true professional singer, she should have done it rather than using a pre-recorded track of her own voice. It is called fraudulent singing. Today, one anonymous inaugural official finally admitted that Bey did not sing live due to the fact that "she did not have enough time to rehearse". Another fake excuse. She knew for months, perhaps a year that she was contracted to sing the National Anthem live. Most of her fans gave her a pass owing to her beauty and "talent" and that we who are her detractors are just haters.

    I care that she lied, took our tax dollars and faked singing. Get a CD next time and not pay her high fee.

    It's bad for your voice to sing in the freezing cold. If I were her I wouldn't want to risk my voice that way but even then she could've rearranged the song so she wouldn't have cracked or lost her voice half way through. We all know she can sing but I guess people just lost respect because of her dramatic part of taking off the ear piece which could have looked genuinely sincere had it been live, but it made it seem shady and kind of unnecessary.

    A great moment in history required a great voice. Beyonce doesn't fit the bill of a great voice. Where in the hell was Patti Labelle, Jennifer Holiday, or Mariah Carey? Those ladies do not need to lyp-sync in front of a massive audience because of their powerhouse voices.

    Beyonce doesn't have the type of vocal talent that ladies like Patti Labelle, Mariah Carey, Celine Deione, Whitney Houston, Angela Winbush, Shirley Murdoch, Jennifer Holiday, Jennifer Hudson, and Chaka Khan has. She is not amongst the world's best voices. She is a highly trained entertainer. There are trained singers and people who were born with great voices. There is a huge difference.

    Yeah, I don't think enough people know the difference between an entertainer like Madonna and a real singer like Celine Dion... One needs massive amounts of props and dancers to keep you entertained and the other just need a microphone.

    Finally, someone who gets it! When you put someone on stage without the props and just a microphone and that singer releases bone chilling vocals, that is a born singer. When the audience is distracted by many backup dancers and an overly elaborate stage design, that performer is simply an entertainer with a trained voice, enhanced by auto tunes. I have heard music by Mariah Carey, Patti Labelle, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and Jennifer Holiday that stopped me in my tracks. There voices are naturally powerful and their music will transcend through generations. Beyonce does not fit in that category. She is a modern day pop culture performer.

    In your opinion. We all process sounds differently. The bottom line is: If you come to sing, then sing, do not lip-snyc!

    Haters? If you come to sing then sing. Do not play a recording of your voice and pretend to sing by taking out your ear piece and lifting your hands while the military pretends to play the instruments. These entertainers of today are not as authentic as the ones of yesterday. Everything about them is either manufactured in a studio or at the plastic surgeon's office.
