Will Beyoncé Lip-Sync the Super Bowl?

Beyoncé may have lip-synced at President Obama's inauguration, but will she dare lip-sync at the 2013 Super Bowl? “It’s very difficult to sing and dance at the same time,” Mike Stevens, vocal chair at The Colburn School in Los Angeles, told ABC News. “So I would not be surprised if she lip-syncs.”

Lip-syncing may embarrass an artist, but a poor performance can do more damage. ABC reported that The Black Eyed Peas sang live during their Super Bowl halftime performance two years ago, and critics and fans both bashed the band for a bad showing. On the other hand, Madonna lip-synced during the 2012 Super Bowl, and only got a smattering of criticism.

Did she or didn’t she? There’s still no response from Beyonce on whether she was lip-synching her rendition of the “Star-Spangled Banner” during President Barack Obama’s second inauguration on Monday. As the superstar prepares for her Super Bowl halftime performance Feb. 3 in New Orleans, the pressure isn’t letting up. All eyes will be on her, paying minute attention to her performance. So will she or won’t she lip-sync at the game? That’s the big question.

    She wouldn't dare lip-sync again so little time after the last incident. Terribly bad PR if she did.

    Most singers lip sync these events.

    Beyonce rarely, if ever lip syncs at her shows and concerts. Because of the conditions of the situation. Lets not forget, the Inauguration was NOT a Beyonce or Parkwood Entertainment produced event.
    To even mention the Black Eyed Peas and Madonna, really? We all know when it comes to live vocals Beyonce is way above those two acts and in a league of her own. Madonna may have hits spanning an impressive career, but shes known for being provocative, not for her live vocal skills.

    As long as she is lip-synching her own voice, I have no problem with it. It's not like Curly Howard lip-synching Christine McIntyire (sp?) singing the "Voices Of Spring" like I saw in a Three Stooges ep. one time. Curly was TRYING to be deceptive, Beyonce ISN'T.

    It doesn't matter what she does. People act like its a big deal. Its not that serious

    I honestly don't understand the big deal with her lip syncing at the inauguration.....many singers lip sync.

    She was not standing around looking stupid....her lips were moving. Besides, she posted photos the day before of herself in the recording studio recording it so it wasn't a huge surprise to me. She would not have sounded that way outside while singing. We will just have to see how she does at the Super Bowl. I personally don't care....as long as I haven't paid for a concert ticket and she lip syncs....

    I hope that she does and I hope that the voice that she lip syncs to is Elvis Presley.

    If you watched it like I did, you can clearly hear her singing. There was a recording, but it was secondary. This was not Milli vanilli so what is the big deal.
  • tamara gengen 2013/01/30 17:08:28
    Um, I doubt that. Why would a singer have their mic on when intending to lip sync? What you heard was mostly likely the echo
  • gengen tamara 2013/02/04 12:53:55
    What I heard was her singing along with her prerecorded track.

    I'm not certain she has ever actually sung before, at this point.

    I prefer live, if I'm there in person, close enough to hear without speakers and amplifiers. Otherwise, it sounds the same whether live or pre-recorded.

    I don't think she can be trusted anymore. She's moved from being a musician, to being an actress pretending to recite lines.

    I don't think she would want to risk getting caught, after all the criticism she's gotten.

    The "damn anthem?" That's our National Anthem... have a little respect. And she won't be singing it anyway, she is doing the half time show! Alicia Keys will be singing the National Anthem and hopefully she will actually sing it, and do so in the proper, respectable manner.... not as she has described by doing it "my style and my way."

    Most performers pre-record whenever possible. Why not? A foul note or lost timing with the accompaniment can spell disaster for all concerned. And, some who shouldn't be asked can actually listen to their miseries and improve on them which is a great benefit to the audience.
