While Beyonce has yet to say anything publicly, insiders claim she is very disappointed by the scandal caused by her decision to use a backing track for her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner for the 2013 Presidential Inauguration...
From Us Magazine
...a source confirms to Us Weekly that she did, in fact, use a backing track for her performance in front of the U.S. Capitol. "She didn't think there was anything wrong with it," the source explains. "Pavarotti has done it! It was freezing out, and if she messed up just one note, that would have been the story."
Continues the source: "Everybody uses these tracks, and the music director advised it. Any big outdoor live performance is almost always with some kind of track."
Still, the insider clarifies that Beyonce didn't completely lip-sync the song: "She did sing, but used a track."
The source concedes that Blue Ivy's mom -- most recently spotted in New Orleans -- is disappointed by the so-called controversy: "A technicality which everybody does took away from the beauty of the moment."
