Default Beyonce can't sing. She has a history.

She did not show up to the rehearsals either. Just another pretty face that can dance but cant sing without expensive hardware, Digital signal processors and a slew of specially trained professionals to process her voice into something usable for the masses.

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...aylor-did-not/

Kelly Clarkson, James Taylor sang live at inauguration, even if Beyonce did not

http://theurbandaily.com/178891/ouch...t-really-sing/

Radio shock jock Howard Stern came up on the board feed of a Beyonce performance from the Today Show. During Bey’s live performance the audience heard polished pre-recorded tracks and the sound engineers heard what sounded like a hyena giving birth.

Somebody leaked the unedited audio of what the former Destiny’s Child lead singer sounds like when she’s not being monitored and, of course, Howard Stern and his crew had a field day with it. I’m sure she can really sing if she wanted to but damn- just hum next time. She tried getting into it like the audience could really hear her. Good thing they couldn’t. If you can’t tell Beyonce is singing along to “If I Were a Boy”.

Knowing how crappy her stuff sounds even after extensive processing and 'fixing', I can only imagine how bad the 'real' singing is. <shudder>

Are you guys serious?

I'm not even a particular fan of Beyonce (or any pop music), but even I know she can actually SING.

This isn't Britney Spears.

Didn't know that she lip synced. How'd she get that gig anyway, so why not real singers like Mariah Carey or Alicia Keys?

This is seriously bad. She's not even remotely in tune. I'm having a really hard time believing that this is not a prank by Howard Stern et al...

She can actually sing, what are you on about?

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xix...acapella_music

Whitney Houston Lip Synched her National Anthem in 91 too.

Is she talentless too?

And actually, the lip sync is just a backup. They can still sing up there.


If you are really going to go off what that stupid Band Spokesperson chick said..you should atleast note that the committee already shot down her statements because it was actually the band that was not performing live because Beyonce couldn't rehearse with them and that the band had no idea if she was singing live or not.
