Since the lip syncing controversy caused when Beyonce pre-recorded and then lip synced while she sang the national anthem for President’s 2nd Inauguration ceremony on January 21, 2013, her half-time performance during this year’s Superbowl was very much anticipated . After her vocal abilities were called into question, many wondered would she deliver a “touch down” performance by singing live and not lip syncing to a pre-recorded track?
Interestingly, this same trio of popular female singers Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys also all performed during President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration events.
Beyonce’s name will once again be attached to the scandal of the Superbowl. Right after the huge production of Beyonce’s half-time performance the Superdome experienced a total blackout. The power outage delayed the game for at least 35 minutes. The social media comments all seemed to suggest that Beyonce drained all the power with her mini-concert.
By the way, it turned out to be a nail biting football game with the Baltimore Raven’s defeating the San Francisco Forty-Niners, final score of 34 to 31.
What did you think of Beyonce’s half-time show?
