I will be honest…I didn’t watch the Inaugural Ball. I was busy watching ‘The Big Bang Theory’ reruns. (No Aunt Yetta, ‘The Big Bang Theory is not “one of them sex shows.”)
I did, however, dig up the important stuff. Bill Clinton photo bombed Kelly Clarkson, as pointed out by the lovely staff at The Superficial. Alicia Keys performed ‘Girl on Fire’ while adjusting the some of the lyrics to “He’s president and he’s on fire,” “Everybody knows Michelle’s his girl,” and “Obama’s on fire.” (I will resist the urge to add “liar liar” to the lyrics.)
Clarkson sang ‘My Country Tis of Thee‘ to an appreciative crowd.
Beyonce busted out “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Now, The Times is claiming that Beyonce lip synched the entire performance.
“A spokeswoman for the Marine Corp Band Kristen DuBois said it was standard procedure to record a backing track and Beyoncé decided shortly before her performance to rely on the studio version rather than risk singing it live on the Capitol.”
At one point in the song she is seen pulling out an ear piece. That would usually signify technical difficulties. What do you think?
