Aretha Franklin on Beyoncé Lip-Syncing: She “Did A Beautiful Job with the Pre-record”

R&B legend Aretha Franklin on Beyoncé lip-syncing at President Obama’s inaugural said: “When I heard the news this evening that she was pre-recorded I really laughed. I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather.” She told ABC News, Beyoncé had ‘done a beautiful job with the pre-record.’ LOL.

“But, when I heard the news this evening that she was pre-recorded I really laughed. I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather,” Franklin told ABC News in an interview. In fact, the weather was even colder than that Monday, around 40 degrees.

“When I heard that I just really cracked up. I thought it was really funny, but she did a beautiful job with the pre-record … next time I’ll probably do the same.”

Wow, so much for the good old days when actual singing talent meant something. I doubt if the majority of young singers can actually sing live and dare I say, a Capella.
