Twitter Reacts To Beyonce Lip-Syncing At Barack Obama's Inauguration
Check out some of the best reaction from Twitter to claims that the 'Crazy In Love' star mimed 'The Star Spangled Banner'.
Twitter users have been responding with both amazement and anger at claims Beyonce lip-synced her performance at Barack Obama's inauguration in Washington DC.
The singer performed US National Anthem 'The Star Spangled Banner' as Obama was sworn in as president for a second term on Monday (21st January).
Her performance was initially widely praised before reports emerged yesterday (22nd January) that she had actually lip-synced to a pre-recorded version of the song.
The Times newspaper said Beyonce decided shortly before the ceremony that she would use the studio version rather than performing live herself.
The news has prompted a barrage of tweets about the revelation, with many people saying it didn't matter if Beyonce had mimed, while others are seemingly outraged.
