Beyoncé stunned the world with her performance of the American national anthem at Obama's inauguration on Monday - but it has now been reported that she mimed the whole thing.
Well, if it's good enough for Cheryl Cole, it's good enough for Bey we suppose.
According to The Times, the singer opted to lip-synch her rendition of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at Monday's event.
A spokesperson for the Marine Corp Band appeared to confirm the speculation over her vocals when they told the paper it was was "standard procedure" to record a backing track, with the Destiny's Child singer only choosing to use it just before taking to the stage.
Kelly Clarkson also sang a rendition of 'My Country 'Tis of Thee' at yesterday's swearing-in ceremony.
