Washington, Jan 24 (ANI): A day after her triumphant rendition of the National Anthem at the Inauguration ceremony in Washington, DC on Monday, a rep for the US Marine Corp Band revealed that Beyonce chose to lip-synch the song over a pre-recorded track at the last minute.

Although the Grammy winner and her team have remained silent about the 'Star Spangled Banner' fracas, a source told Us magazine that she did, in fact, use a backing track for her performance.

"She didn't think there was anything wrong with it. Pavarotti has done it! It was freezing out, and if she messed up just one note, that would have been the story," the source said.

The source added that everybody uses these tracks, and the music director advised it.

Any big outdoor live performance is almost always with some kind of track, the source said.

The insider clarified that the R and B queen didn't completely lip-sync the song. She sang, but used a track, the source said. (ANI)
