On the other hand, Kelly Clarkson, an “American Idol” winner, sang “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” WITHOUT the help of a backing track, TMZ reports. Um, true talent. Patti Labelle sang the National Anthem live standing on ice at the 2012 NHL Classic. Talk about a true professional.
What’s preposterous is the connection by right wing lunatics Beyoncé lip-syncing somehow shows that President Obama’s second term is a sham. SMH. As much as I hate the idea of lip syncing, I must ask if the outrage over Whitney Houston lip syncing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl when the U.S. had just begun the Gulf War in 1991. Was that connected to the Bush Administration?
