Such feudin' and fussin'! Did she Lip-sync? Was that a bad thing?
I have but one thing to say. Who cares?
I am usually the first to state my displeasure with modern singers who take peotic license with the National Anthem by changing the tune or going for high notes where none have been before. That was true until I heard Beyonce' sing the Anthem at the inauguration. She broke every rule I mentioned above and I loved every note of it! I have never heard a more stirring, honest,beautiful rendition by anyone. If that was lip-sync, I didn't notice. I was too busy enjoying the fabulous talent of a beautiful young American talent.
