When fans go to a concert venue or event to see their favorite artist sing, chances are, they’d prefer to see them sing live. But in what has become common practice, more and more singers lip sync, and while that’s okay under certain circumstances, these artists were criticized for faking it to the music.
When he was sworn in for the highest office of the land for the second time, President Obama decided to have none other than Beyoncé sing at the inauguration. She gave such a great rendition of the national anthem that her flawless performance left some in tears. But it turns out that the flawless performance was actually a recording. Queen Bey opted to “sing” over a recording because she didn’t have time to properly rehearse with the Marine band, who was backing her up beforehand.
