BEYONCE’ SAYS SHE WON’T LIP-SYNCH SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The two big questions for Beyonce’ as she faced the press in advance of her Super Bowl performance: did she lip-synch at the presidential inauguration, and is Destiny’s Child going to show up? Beyonce admits she did sing the national anthem to a recorded track at the inauguration.
She says she didn’t have time to rehearse with the orchestra and she wanted to make President Barack Obama and the country proud of her. She promises she will sing live at the halftime show on Sunday.
Beyonce’ even poked fun at reporters by opening the news conference by singing the anthem a cappella, then saying, “Any questions?” And when asked if she’ll have any collaborators on Sunday, Beyonce’ coyly said she can’t give any details.
