Howard Stern

Exposes a Screeching Beyonce

4/22/2009 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you've ever wondered what a cat sounds like when it's being strangled, then you're gonna love the supposed raw, unedited, "board mix" of Beyonce Knowles from her "Today Show" performance last year -- courtesy of Howard Stern.


The King of All Media ran the supposedly leaked audio clip on his Sirius radio show yesterday.

Talk about something "fierce"...

Any "singer" that "sings along" with a backing tape can't be good. There's no excuse for backing tapes but "I can't sing live". They are all like that, Madonna, Titney, Rihanna. They could at least have used some Auto-tune, it's not that expensive.

7. there is something wrong here, it sounds like it was messing up in the machine or something.... can someone verify she actually sang this badly or was it an error?? otherwise someone is making her look bad for nothing and could potentially be sued? she sang beautifully for Obama and that was live.....

Hey, Folks can you belive how naive this post-hag is. "She sang live" for Obama.
There is no "live" the uninformed douche. If it's on TV it's manipulated... first of all there are delays used with "live" programming... so they can edit and any performance can be lip-sinced. THose classical bozos who played their fiddles for Obama were pre-taped and Britney does her "LIVE" shows lip-sined. If you're this stupid pleass stay away from TMZ and keep buying Beyonde-words music... you must really love the ANONYMOUS singer who is her "REAL" voice.

All studio, no talent!!! She sounded flat, off key and tone deaf the entire time, singing with her own track you would think she would sound much better. Goes to prove she's manufactured material!!! No raw talent there at all.

First, it's spelled LIP SYNCED not lip sinced.

Second, if you heard the clip, Howard Stern was explaining that she was lip syncing, but singing along to the audio track-- the cd version of the song that was heard by the audience and those at home. She had her ear things in, so she couldn't hear the "good' version.

And she isn't the only one who does this, most artists do.... So even though the performance is live... her singing may not be. They do this on Award shows too....

She sang with Hugh Jackman at the Oscars in March, I think, and she was clearly lip syncing then too!

TMZ, it is very clear that this video was altered. I am not a huge Beyonce fan, and I believe that she is not the most talented, however this is flat our ridiculous, she is not this bad.

If you read my comment then you would know that I didn't say she lip sinked on the Stern clip... I'm simply explaining that this hag lip-sinkt for Obama and probably all of her "LIVE" gigs.
Secondly, singing along to the existing audio track or not... you don't sound like that if you can truely sing... please...I was married to a famous female singer... I know.
Thirdly, Professor, if you feel the need to isolate my typos then maybe you should check your grammar (Howard Stern was explaining that she was lip syncing, but singing along to) you write like an illegal immigrant.
Now go back to your sandbox and have a cookie...

I have always thought she sang awful ,I never could understand the big deal over her anyway, and from what I hear she is a major diva.
