Milli Vanilli 'Singer'

So WHAT If Beyonce

Beyonce
didn't do ANYTHING wrong by lip-syncing her way through the national anthem at the Presidential Inauguration -- so says one of the most famous lip-syncers of all time ... Fab Morvan from Milli Vanilli.

Fab tells us, "It's hard to believe, in this day of auto-tune, that people are still acting surprised [by Beyonce lip-syncing.]"

He adds, "Everyone knows Beyonce can sing. Everyone should just step back and relax. There are far more important things to worry about. But I can certainly relate to what she's going through."

You can say that again -- but we still gotta ask ...

It's not about whether she can sing or not. Singing is her job so is performing for crowds. Why bother having an actual live thing at all? Mitt Romney would be more than happy to lip-sync for free.

Kelly respected this moment in history; Beyonce didn't. What did Beyonce have to hide? The fact that she cannot sing? Its also kinda hard to remember the words with only a 5-grade education. She has nothing on Whitney. I doubt Whitney would've lip synced at an event such as this. Beyonce so hungry from all of that work chowed down in New Orleans, waiting for her next lip syncing event at the Superbowl. Faking pregnancies and singing. Stick with songs like "put a ring on it" and you will be alright.

If you are a Singer Lip synching is unacceptable. I am blown away that Beyonce thought that it would be OK to do this during a huge event as the President's inauguration. Shows no class, and pure laziness. Celebrities think they can do whatever they want. Ugh!

the fact that others (kelly clarkson) DID sing live and beyonce didn't says a lot about beyonces 'talent'....I think what pisse* most people off was the fact that beyonce went to great lengths to make it appear that she was singing - even the fake ear plug pull out - why does she continually try to deceive everyone?! fake photos, fake performance, fake pregnancy....the list goes on!!!!!

She should not have lip-synched.

Singing the national anthem is a challenge for even professional singers.

At the president's inauguration, she should have embraced that challenge. Beyonce has been OWNED by every single highschooler who sang that national anthem before their school's football game.

Its time that allof these stars and performers get real. If they are being asked to appear and perform, then they should perform. No excuses, no fall backs, no sound tracks. Nobody hires or invites a specific performer to come to my event and lipsync a sond. There is no difference between that and simoply playing a tape recording of their music. I for one find it disgusting. They get paid to sing, that does not mean they get to lipsync, that is clearly not performing, it is faking a performance. Its time for the industry to come clean. For what these peopke get paid it is for a real performance, not a taped performance.
