Word just hit that Lady Bey was indeed lip-synching her now infamous rendition of the national anthem. Beyoncé apparently made the last-minute call to use the studio version of the ballad shortly before taking the stage, and the band followed suit with the pre-recorded backup tunes. While we totally get the stresses that can come with serenading the Prez (and hundreds of thousands of onlookers), we have to say we're a bit bummed.
