Washington, Jan 24 (ANI): Former Destiny Child's member Michelle Williams came to Beyonce's defence for her lip-syncing controversy during the R and B singer's performance at the President's inauguration.

Williams was quick to speak out in favor of Beyonce when asked about the incident, saying that it's not the first or the last time that someone has had to lip-sync, Fox News reported.

Her greatest singer of all time, Whitney Houston's anthem was in fact lip-synced, she told ET.

"It's their personal preference. With big crowds and echoes, you know when it's a big historical moment, you don't want any room for any mistakes so I can understand why it was done," she added.

Similarly, when asked about the lip-sync scandal, the queen of soul and past inaugural performer Aretha Franklin said she laughed when she heard Beyonce hadn't sung live.

Jennifer Lopez also said that she understood situations in which singers opt to lip sync, and she didn't seem fazed by the scandal when asked about it on 'The Daily Show.'

Katy Perry also stood by Beyonce's side, telling X17 "she didn't lip sync."

Former 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler told TMZ.com that whether or not she sang live really didn't matter because, well, it's Beyonce.

"Beyonce's so hot she can do anything," he said. "Let's just get real." (ANI)
