Lip Syncing For Her Life

beyonce101

Do I care that Beyonce lip-synced the National Anthem at the Presidential Inauguration? Not really. I do somewhat mind that I was duped, as I proclaimed my love prematurely on Twitter, saying that I was a new fan based on that performance – but in the end I’m relieved because now I can go back to not being a fan, which is always where I’ve stood regarding Ms. Knowles. (Or is it Ms. Z?) Anyway, I can’t pass too much judgment, as I recall some killer performances being lip-synced in service of production – but that didn’t seem to be the case here where understatement and honesty were the marks of the scene. We’ll see what Beyonce does for her own Super Bowl performance. She’s got a tough act to follow, and I don’t envy anyone having to fill those heels.
