Report: Beyonce Didn't See Anything Wrong with Lip-Synching

Though she remains silent, a source close to Beyoncé Knowles says the “Single Ladies” songstress didn’t see anything wrong with lip-synching the National Anthem at President Barack Obama's inauguration on Monday (January 21).

"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."

According to the source, the Grammy winner decided to record a track at the last minute due to the cold weather and on the advice of the musical director in charge.

Coming to Ms. Knowles' defense was fellow superstar Aretha Franklin, who sung at the 2009 inauguration, saying, "The weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather."
