It served the purpose. She wasn't cheating at anything. I don't understand why people get so uptight over things like this.

I really don't think it matters that much. I'm really not a fan of hers, but the SSB is a very difficult piece and with the cold, etc. etc. who can blame her. At such an important event you really don't want to mess up. Look at how everyone always rip those who do mess it up! Seem like she was in a no win situation.

So NOT important in the big scheme of things.

I don't know anyone's "politics" on here but at work the only people that are "outraged" are my conservative co-workers. They have come to me the last couple of days asking me how embarrassed I am, as a musician, that such an atrocious and malicious act such as lipsynching the SSB. That was two women co-workers of mine. Another said to me that everything that's related to the President is fake. LOL!

Some people have their priorities mixed up.

My brother and I were actually talking about this.

I was highly disappointed that CNN was "reporting" about this so much when I was working out. Honestly, I didn't understand the big deal at all (if we're getting all in a twitch about a celebrity lip syncing to a recording she did the night before, then I wonder what the purpose of watching the news is anymore). I'm sure there are bigger fish to fry in the world than one person lip syncing at an event. She's not the first, she's not going to be the last, and honestly, it's not some huge deal like people have been making it out to be.

I dont think its a big deal, even Whitney Houston lip synced the star spangled banner. I think the ridicule of lip syncing is better than her voice cracking or forgetting a lyric

It's not a big deal. I'd think it would have been better though if she would have just sang live.

I wish the news would quit playing the story over and over. I would rather watch honey boo boo, then hear it again

I think mistakes make a singer more human. On one of those shows they played Beyonce singing without the back up track. And it was just fine. No cracking voice.

Dachi, I wonder what real news is being glossed over for this bit of pop culture?

Here's my thought on it: Too often the celebrities sing at these public functions and their voice mat crack or they forget a word or line and we all criticze that - so what if she lip synced - I don't even care why. It presented well - leave it alone

Then you wonder if all her performances are lip synced?

I think I would be upset if I was Kelly Clarkson, because she sang live without help?

Just makes you wonderAshlee Simpson was caught lip syncing and caught a lot of flack for it

Tired of hearing about it. Anyone notice how they latch on to one item and beat it to death? It happened now move on. Everyone is ok. No harm done!! Please bring attention to something that really matters. emoticon

About Beyonce lip syncing The National Anthem?

I think all the news coverage is much do about nothing. We know that she can sing. We know that it was her voice. It is not like she was pulling a Milly Vanilly.

I am just disappointed that preparing for the Super Bowl was considered more important than preparing for the Inauguration.

I wonder how Kelly Clarkson feels about the matter
