Beyonce's Dad Was Right

Hoax, Hoax, Hoax!!!

0422_beyonce_ex_c-1Beyonce
has officially been cleared of all bad singing charges -- the atrocious supposed "board mix" of her performance on "The Today Show" last year was altered after all.

Just as Mathew Knowles told us, the audio clip that many people believed was leaked from "Today" was indeed a fake.

In fact, TMZ found the person behind the prank who was surprised it went as far as it did, saying, "It's a little bit crazy. No one in their right mind would sound like that, and no one would cheer for someone singing like that."

Apparently, the dude never went to an Ashlee Simpson concert...

Who cares?.The bitch is ashamed of her race to begin with.Any black woman that goes for white women flowing blonde hair is a traitor to her race.Beyonce looks more like a white woman that a black woman.Black people want to be proud of their race but the black women turn their back on their race by trying to look like white women more and more.I laugh everytime I see one of these undefined bitches.Neither black nor white but neutral.He,he,he.....

Beyonce does have singing talent and don't believe for one second that the recording of her horrible voice is a fake. Beyonce cannot sing.

Anyone with an ear for music can hear the change in pitch due to post production manipulation.

@"D"# 32. Y'all are so stupid. Beyonce is a vocal genius.

WOW, vocal genius???? I need to remind myself that Beyonce fans are little kids (yes 20's is considered a kid, even though I am 31) and they have NEVER heard REAL singers. Umm, does anyone remember AAliyah??? If she was still alive we NEVER WOULD HAVE HEARD of BEYONCE! She is only popular because this generation has had not talent since the late 90's. Beyonce is a FILLER for the ADD/ADHD world of singers and fans. There is NO REAL MUSIC anymore.
MARY J. BLIGE is a real ass singer, she SINGS during the filming of her videos!!! No lip syncing for a REAL SINGER!!!
Please go grab Anita Baker or Billie Holliday, listen, then come back and talk about real music.

People will believe anything; especially about someone they already dislike! The youtuber who made the video is named "aladdin82" and he's a big Janet Jackson fan. He also altered Christina Aguilera's vocals and that video is still on his page.

This is a complete spin on the original story. I have mixed many live concerts. On live TV they prefer to lip sync for performance and time issues. The band plays over synced tracks. What you are hearing is her singing to the track with no monitor. It makes you almost tone deaf. That is why she sounds like this. There is no way this is faked. I have been listening to her since early Destiny Child tracks and that is her singing. Watch the video and her mic movements. It is perfectly synced.
You cannot believe this is hoaxed if you watch the video and the mouth movements.

She can sing, but at that concert she was tone deaf because of not hacing an earpiece or onstage monitors.
