The initial moments of Beyoncé's inauguration performance were fraught with confusion, after she opened her mouth to sing the national anthem and everyone realised that God had replaced the artist formerly known as Beyoncé with an actual living angel whose voice was more heavenly than a thousand Hallelujah choruses.
I came here from Jackie Evancho for healing my ears !
Michelle Lee
Lol Obama tried to go in for the double cheek peck and she said BYE
Travis C
Back when people stood for the pledge without it being a problem...

Elma Lin
She looks so pretty
wow she really looks like her mom
Brian Kim
I thought u weren't allowed to have hats on during the national anthem. Why r the military guys wearing hats? I'm just wondering, cuz at the football games we take our helmets off and everybody in the stands with hats on take it off. I'm guessing it's just the military people who wear them??
Jay'Rell 4Real
She sang with a track she's not just up there moving her lips can clearly hear two voices
Maxwell M
Don't watch this after 2017 Inauguration day, word of advice. You're just hurting yourself. Oh, and remember: there was such less people in the audience in 2017 compared to 2013 because of "the rain, and the bad filming of the event by the dishonest media", as President Donald J. Trump said during his speech at the CIA HQ...
igzoyzyododyy xoyoy6odoydyod
she killed it!!!
bon-bon the bunny
we will miss obama.
How can ppl tell she lip synced?? I've been watching and I can't spot it! 🤔
Caz PK
Beyonce at her usual FAKE best.

Parisian Guy
I can't believe Barrack Obama and Joe Biden are leaving the White House...Will this make me sad forever? Great anthem, great singer, great country. Greets from France
Cave Johnson
The lady behind President Obama is just lifelesd
Araxia Mikaelyan
Beyonce, you should have sang in the super bowl instead of Lady Gaga, you would have nailed it like this one.
SplitYT Nebulous
At the end she ripped off her bluethoot transmitter
Jeskyaa Lee
Yes the audio is better in this than it was with Jackie's but what would you do if you were 16 and received death threats. She has sung it perfectly before
Dody Mahulette
I really expect the 2017 inauguration's national anthem would be like this, or even better than this. so sad
stere herman
Next time I hope to be sia
Matthew Cameron
She sang live at the Super Bowl conference
Queen B!!! Sorry Trump!!
Joyce Belfort
Has Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston done this before? I wonder who would slay this better.
Nandi Matope
Who came here to compare beyonces national anthem version to the girl who did trumps ?
"Beyonce" is the most overrated performer of our generation!
Jeff Brooks
great singing, shity presidency.
Stop changing the anthem and sing it how it is so EVERYONE can sing along! I'm SURE Beyonce can sing a beautiful traditional version but she chose NOT to. Sadly, it seems to be a rare thing to find a traditional powerful version these days. Check out this: "USA National Anthem Traditional Michael Bellis".
Brittany Wilson
Beyoncé lipscincs 🙂 Justin Berber lipscincs 😡
official geo
She sang good, but Lady Gaga sang it better.
Hotaru Tomoe
Remember when they revealed that it was all lip synced? Lol She CAN sing but it was pre recorded
Shady Grady
to hell with the traditional melody of the national anthem, right Beyonce?
Ugh, that poor girl bombed the national anthem today.... had to come here to cleanse my brain of that mess.
Jennifer Johnson
Yep. That's how it was meant to sound..
Anthony Sanders
People are really stupid. lip syncing is when you mime the lyrics, to be appear to be singing. Beyonce was singing along to a prerecorded track which is technically not lip syncing. You can clearly see her take her earpiece out of her ear. smh😒
Wow, poor Jackie, now that I rewatch this.
keepingupwith jee
Y'all need to stop saying Beyoncé is a living legend y'all funny as hell lmfao
I was researching about The Great Gatsby and now im here plz help

kaylin lopez
Ok lady's now let's get in formation.
Gregg Johnson
She isn't patriotic towards this "racist" nation. Disgraceful.
Syifa Fathoni
At least it was her real voice..
Tatum Mahon
Whitney Houston was better, but this is still amazing!

Breonna Crockett
Go girl
Deionte Harrilla
Lip sync or not she still had to record it with her, keyword her, voice!
Grace Mwangi
I watched this just to compare with that little girl Jackie
Γιάννης Λουδοβίκος
for a minute i thought we had monarchy!QUEEN!
vedant entertainment
Hi I am an Indian but still I like this anthem
Ray Tate
Lip-sync. She can't actually sing. On all her albums her voice is electronically adjusted for pitch. Talent fraud.
Roseand Stem
Such a beautiful, lip sync performance by Beyoncé
Brad K
Lip-sync!!! Why would any body lip-sync for? She should have performed this live and whatever happens, happens.
Mr Perfect
salute from pakistan
Jonathan Piper II
Because of trumps whatever everyone came to rewatch this 😂💀💀
Elma Lin
I have to learn the American anthem cause me and my school choir are gonna sing the Canadian Anthem and American at a hockey game in Toronto. The marlies game
Go listen to Whitney Houston's version..... That version will make you go to war proud to be an American...... Not beyonces fault but Whitney is just flat out overall better rendition... It's straight to the point and just inspiring...... Maybe it's just the signs of time..... Many of is Americans seem suspicious about our governments agenda.
Luna Ib
Throwback to when Obama was our president:(
Christian Hernandez

Thx Donald Trump!
I <3 Biden. 1 <3 Obama. I <3 Beyonce. I will begrudgingly be patient for Trump in office.
Beyonce is the best singer.... Just like President Obama is the best President.... Hands down....
Arianators 4LIFE
Beautiful ❤️
Beyonce confessed it was playback but she's still perfect .
I wonder who's gonna sing in Donald Trump.
Rick Ducastel
Mariah Carey's better
when i listen to this anthem i see millions murdered children and innocent people in vietnam, iraq, lybia, syria...
I don't care what anyone says. Lip-Syching the National Anthem for our first black president's inauguration was VERY cheap and classless of Beyoncé. And she calls herself some type of entertainer? Give me a break! I have never liked the song, but when done correctly it sounds good. Like Prince said, REAL musicians do not believe in lip-syncing! They should have put Whitney Houston, the greatest female vocalist of all time, on the jumbotron and skipped this shit. But this is what you get when you deal with the bullshit "entertainers" of today. God only knows how any of their voices really sound. Gone is the day of the spontaneity and excitement that a true live performance would bring; when you never knew what your favorite artist would do to make that particular performance unique. That's why I've been a collector of live performances since I was 9 years old, for the spontaneity! As good as Beyoncé might look, her work ethic is shit for pulling this. And that's how the music industry is operated nowadays, SOME people might look good but the music is shit. It's like making a cake of shit and slapping icing on it and calling it chocolate. You can make it as pretty as you want but when you get done decorating it, you are still left with a plate of shit, and there's no way around it. And unfortunately, that's what the industry has come to.

now this is a proper wayto inaugurate a president, not that shit show Donald trump served up
Silver Schooner
Isn't this the Beyoncé lip-sync? That's not a performance, that's a deceit.
