Beyonce's National Anthem Inauguration Performance - Watch Now!

Beyonce's National Anthem Inauguration Performance - Watch Now!

Beyonce stuns the crows as she belts out the National Anthem at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration held at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on Monday (January 21) in Washington, DC.

The 31-year-old entertainer, who closed out the show with her breathtaking performance, was accompanied by her husband Jay-Z to watch President Barack Obama get sworn in for his second term as the Commander in Chief.

After her performance, Bey kissed the President on the cheek and shook hands with Vice President Joe Biden.

Bey and Jay-Z have been avid supporters of the President – they even threw him a fundraiser before his re-election to help show their support.

FYI: Beyonce is wearing an Emilio Pucci dress.

10+ pictures inside of Beyonce performing the National Anthemm at the Inauguration…

She did good. I saw her put a bit of Whitney on the ending. But as always she made the song about herself. sorry that was all I was thinking. Kelly did better in the sense that her song was more emotional.

But they both did very well.

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny she’s one hell of a performer. She’s AMAZING live. Dances and sings at the same time like no other. And in heels! I admire her for that. And she has decent vocals which is a plus. Beauty is relative but me, personally, I think she’s beautiful. I don’t always like her weaves and wish she’d embrace her real hair more but whatever pleases her….. she’s still pretty IMO. That was good!

She did amazing. Absolutely amazing, she’s a great performer. And all of that isn’t weave, Beyonce’s hair is actually fairly long. She just adds some hair pieces. Every race adds fake hair to their hair, saying she needs to “embrace” her hair doesn’t make sense to me, given the fact that she has good hair. Great performance as always.

They were both fantastic…but Kelly sounded a bit nicer because she has a better voice and is a better singer…she makes it looks so effortless…IMO…but i still liked Bey’s performance a little more…go figure!

@@#8: this isn’t a kelly clarkson post. it’s Beyonce.

That was beautiful.

She did really good

@DULC€: You wouldn’t sound so stupid if you tried harder. Just because schools out today doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be using this time to study. Remember you barely passed to the 8th grade last year so get off the computer and get to cracking!

Overdone. Too much vocal virtuosity, like Aguilera.

Neither Beyonce nor Kelly are great singers. They may be great performers in concert but their vocal abilities are not out of the ordinary.
.
It takes so little talent to please and impress some people.
.
Beyonce is lovely however.

@groundcontrol: Are you out of your freakin mind?!!! Kelly is an excellent vocalist. Even Simon Cowell couldn’t deny it. If you listen to her songs, her voice is powerful. I love Beyonce, but except for her dancy big hits, I’m not much a fan of the way she sings. Her voice is too dramatic. But she is great for what she does. And she is also an amazing performer. What an honor for the both of them!

SHE LIP SYNCED, you will see in the other videos that focused on her mainly that she was lipping and she made it about the ear plugs to divert attention. kelly upstaged her, there was no emotions or soul from beyonce.

and why is she wearing an evening attire, so ghetto and out of place, still rocking that blonde wig. YAWN. over HYPED and OVERATED.

so disappointing

I thought she is gonna pay tribute to Lana del Rey’s National Anthem

I hope Beyonce is prepared because looking at the pictures of JAY..well he is not going to age well. He looked so old for some reason

@jen:

You are obviously deaf. She did by far the best rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, with the RIGHT meaning in the right places, than I have heard in over 10 years/

As for those comparing her with Kelly – I thought Kelly s last verse was great, the rest was so so and too low in tone for her voice, Beyonce hit it out of the PARK and the ANTHEM sounded like the anthem of a GREAT COUNTRY when she sang it…

I used to like her, but she seems to be all about shoving her photoshopped body in skimpy clothes in peoples faces now, which I find very off-putting. Plus she lost her ability to sing now. Once they reached a certain level of celebrity and wealth unfortunately most of these people are just about shtick rather than talent and dedication.

fundraiser? is that the same fundraiser held in las vegas the day IMMEDIATELY after the benghazi attack?

People these days… All I can do is laugh! You’d have to be deaf to think that Kelly Calrkson did anything remotely close to what Beyoncé did today and to those who said Kelly Clarkson is a better vocalist… To each his own, but my ears don’t lie and neither does a crowd of 700,000. All you have to do is listen to the difference in the crowd reaction between the two performances, BEYONCÉ delivered, Kelly is a sweet girl and she’s a good singer, but she was mediocre at best and she decided to rev it up on the last verse of the song (after she realized no one could here the first part of it). I’m not saying she did a bad job, and I never respond to the comments on these blogs USUALLY, but some of you have gone AO far out of your way to make it seem like Beyoncé didn’t stun today… But you know you watched this video more than once – get real!

She doesn’t look happy. Not smiling..I guess there’s sth wrong in her family..or maybe financial problems))

she did a great job !

That’s how you sing it Christina Aguilera!

why didn’t she kiss joe biden?

Natasha (Nataliya) Stasyi @ 01/22/2013 at 9:48 am

@Luiza: Oh, “thank you”. How nice you are!!(( What about Carrie (#30), she also “liked much”. lol

Silence Dogood @ 01/22/2013 at 1:22 pm

Lipsynced….

fake pregnancy, fake singing, fake all around

oh, and apparently, fake marriage, if you believe the new “blind”
the goop all up in that stuff….yuck

@XxXxX: It isn’t very hard to sing and dance the same time (even in heals) when you’re lipsyncing.

Oh Yeah!!! @ 01/22/2013 at 5:18 pm

flawless
