Beyonce lip-syncing at the inauguration: Musician Mike Doughty says she was singing live. — I'm hoping for a flurry of retractions. A Marine spokesperson said yesterday that she couldn't confirm or deny that Beyoncé wasn't lip-syncing, and pretty much every media outlet assumed that was an admission. On NBC Nightly News, Brian Williams said that Beyoncé wasn't lip-syncing, but, "in effect, lip-syncing"; Jon Stewart's jokes...
The proof is in the Veep RT @Glinner: Beyoncé wasn't lip-synching.
Wait, wait, hope is not dead! Maybe Beyonce WAS singing live after all:
Sure, I could mock the obsession with the lip-sync "scandal," but I'm sort of enjoying all the pictures of Beyonce:
Collective Soul's Mike Doughty has a delightfully technical post on why Beyonce wasn't lip-syncing:
My mom emailed me @Mike_Doughty_'s Beyoncé piece, subject line "Take that you queen B haters!!!"
"For me, the most compelling evidence that Beyoncé was doing it for real is the HELL YES smile on Joe Biden's face."
Will our long national nightmare never end? RT @mattyglesias Mike Doughty says Beyoncé wasn’t lip-syncing:
"It's difficult to ignore her thighs, but, please, focus solely on the lips"
Though I'm not a huge fan, everyone hating Beyonce for "not singing" at the Inauguration is absurd. People, read this:
Mike Doughty(!) makes a strong case that Bey wasn't lip-syncing, so we can all stop talking about that now.
@tpetruno one to 4, especially since it now looks like she didn't lip-sync
@RachelSB: Right or wrong this is a fascinating read on the science of live singing that concludes Beyonce was.

I wont pretend to know the truth here, but this is a persuasive case that Beyonce didnt lip sync:
Care or not, a delightful read: RT @elisefoley Beyonce maybe WAS singing live after all "The K2 of national anthems."
This guy has detailed description why Beyonce was NOT lip-synching. I put my money on him.
I love @Mike_Doughty_ for defending Beyonce. Sometimes Sasha Fierce is not available for security detail I'm sure.
Okay maybe read this too. Lots of evidence that #Beyonce was singing for realz:
My thoughts exactly MT @mrbutterworth I could care less whether Beyonce lip-synced, but I enjoy a smart take like this
"The national anthem is a bitch to sing—it’s the K2 of national anthems." (via @rosiegray)
