Kelly Clarkson

Sorry Beyonce,

I Sang LIVE at Inauguration

Kelly Clarkson doesn't compare to Beyonce -- because Kelly actually sang her song LIVE yesterday at the Presidential Inauguration ... TMZ has learned ... unlike Beyonce, who lip-synced to a pre-recorded track.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Marine Corp Band -- which provides the music for the Inauguration -- tells TMZ, Beyonce mouthed the words to a pre-recorded studio version of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

But the rep added, Kelly sang "My Country 'Tis of Thee" WITHOUT the help of a backing track.

The rep said it's standard procedure to record a backing track before a live performance such as this -- you know, just in case -- and Bey decided at the last minute to rely on the studio version instead of winging it in person.

The rep added, "We all know Beyonce can sing ... We don't know why she chose to use the pre-recorded track."

Explains why Kelly didn't do so great. It's hard to sing live outdoors like that with echoes & no acoustics. Beyonce is smart! Whitney did the same at the Super Bowl.

Bounce can't sing and she does fake singing all the time. She lets the machines do all the work while she thinks her cellulite fugly rear looks good. Bounce needs to bounce.

America puts her trust in her weapons of war! She threatens the nations of the earth and has Obama assassinating Muammar Gaddafi. What has he done?

My people, They said they were only going over there for humanitarian reasons -- and we believed that. You've been deceived! You talk about a man killing his own people, When you lie to the American people saying that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. When you lie and then take innocent young men who come to serve their country, and send them to die in Iraq, in Afghanistan, over lies, that's a murderer in the White House. I believe it was either Nixon or Reagan who authorized my killing so i wont speak out. If you strike me down, i shall become more powerful then you can ever imagine!

Kudos to Kelly Clarkson. If Beyonce sang a recorded version, why did she take out her earpiece at the end?

That's why she looked so nervous and wasn't screaming uncontrollably over the song because she Brit lip synced it!
