What Do You Think About Beyoncé's Lip Syncing Drama?

The country has been abuzz with talk of Beyoncé's lip syncing drama, where it has been said she lip synced the national anthem during the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. She had recorded to tape a day or so prior, and then instead of singing live on Monday, January 21, she elected to use the track. So she did sing it; she just didn't sing it live at that moment.
People are freaking the fuck out over the fact that she chose not to sing live. It could have been a variety of reasons that she elected to go with the tape. It was cold. Her throat may have hurt or it may have been dry. Or she may have had a raging case of nerves, since so many people flub the song in high pressure situations like the one she was in. We know Bey is usually flawless, but she is human and prone to things like nerves and anxiety, which could have come into play here.
The truth is we don't know, as the diva has yet to comment on the situation.
That said, she did practice and record with the Marine Corps Band in advance. She just chose to use the recorded version when the time came.
Tell us your thoughts. Do you think it was a big deal? Was it cowardly? Was it her right? Is it silly that people care this much? Are you angered that she didn't do it live? We want to hear from you on this hot topic, which will be forgotten in a few days!
