DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Was it live or was it Memorex?

Reports say when superstar Beyonce sang the National Anthem for the inauguration of President Barack Obama Monday, it wasn’t live.

Her soaring rendition drew raves around the world, but the Washingtonian website says it was able to confirm she was only miming the words. As evidence, they cited the fact she pulled her earpiece out halfway through the song.

“We don’t know why Beyoncé decided to use prerecorded music,” the Washingtonian quoted a spokesperson for the Marine Corps Band as saying. “All music [for inaugural ceremonies] is prerecorded as a matter of course, and that’s something we’ve done for years and years. The Marine Band did perform live throughout the ceremony but we received last-minute word that Beyoncé wanted to use the recording.”

So, what do you think Detroit: Is it OK that she lip synced?
