She said, quote, "We all know Beyoncé can sing. We all know the Marine Corps Band can play. We do not know why she decided to go with the pre-recorded music at the last minute." She added that the band played live for the other performers, like KELLY CLARKSON, but was specifically told to FAKE IT for Beyoncé. A spokeswoman for the Marine Corps Band came out yesterday and said that BEYONCÉ lip-synced her rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" at PRESIDENT OBAMA'S inauguration on Monday. But a Marine Corps spokesman issued a statement saying that no one in the band knows whether she sang live or not. He did admit that the BAND didn't play . . . because they didn't have time to properly rehearse with her.
