If you’ve been living under a rock, you might’ve missed out on the whole Beyonce lip-syncing scandal. Beyonce didn’t sing live at President Obama’s second inauguration. Everyone became outraged and a ton of people got their panties in a bunch.

Well, Bey can sing, everyone. And she proved it at the Super Bowl press conference yesterday.

The lady has pipes. But why didn’t she sing live at Obama’s second inauguration? Beyonce decided at the last minute to sing along to a pre-recorded track.

“I am a perfectionist … I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra,” answered Beyonce. “It was a live television show and a very, very important, emotional show for me … and due to the weather, due to the delay, and due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the President and the inauguration and I wanted to make him and my country proud, so I decided to sing along to my pre-recorded track …¬†And I’m very proud of my performance.”

If you had any doubts about Beyonce singing live at Super Bowl XLVII, she says she’ll “absolutely be singing live.” But she’s staying tight-lipped about a possible Destiny’s Child reunion for the halftime show.

Our fingers are crossed!
