| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It's true, Beyonce admits: She did have recorded help during her "Star-Spangled Banner" performance at the presidential inauguration.

But just to shush the doubters, she opened her press conference Thursday afternoon with a live rendition of the national anthem. And of course, it was perfection.

"Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk [at the inauguration]," she said, according to TMZ.com. "So I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I'm very proud of my performance.

She was promoting her halftime performance at this Sunday's Super Bowl.
