Steven Tyler Gives Beyonce

HOT PASS

on Fake National Anthem

EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce could've done a sock puppet lip-sync of the "Star Spangled Banner" -- as far as Steven Tyler's concerned -- as long as her smoking bod was in plain view at the Inauguration.

Steven was outside the Viper Room, and when we asked about B's lip-syncing debacle he said ...  "Beyonce's so hot she can do anything. Let's just get real."

Aerosmith's frontman didn't seem the least bit bent about the controversy, and even belted out ... "Whatever gets you through the night" ... LIVE, mind you.

So, has Steven ever, y'know -- faked it?

Check the clip and get the answer straight from those famous lips.

Steven love you!!! Beyonce? Not my thing but better to pre record than to blow the anthem. NOW that is always a big story.

Personally, I feel if an A-list performer like Beyonce who makes millions off her voice (and looks) cannot set up to the plate and perform live for one of the naations highest honors, it is just plain pathetic. There are no excusable "passes" allowed in this regard. She should be ashamed and embarrassed of herself. Yet, people will "excuse" her because she's "Beyonce". -so what-. She fell off the charts on this debacle..or farce is an appropiate term for this particular situation. Maybe you should stop spending so much time with the Obama's...they are rubbing off you on "B".

Well here we have that dream re-enactment inauguration (he took the Oath Sunday, well he took AN oath we are told), fluffed it by not completing the complex words "United States" then propelled us towards an affirmative lip-synch faker warbling 200 extra syllables "Cos da sound better". Get over the entire pointless fake Triumph of the Will battlement block party, and get on your knees to your leader. Ja, wir können.

This is the Tyler who would "eat the rich" unless the rich are himself and the entertainers with whom he hobnobs.

No matter what the National Anthem deserve respect a lot of our soldier gave their live for our freedom and Beyonce should off thought about given honor to those fallen soldier and friendship to the Obama. Beyonce probably was worry of screwing up the song and decided to edit or pre record so she doesn't make a fool of herself in front on millions of people. The National Anthem is not an easy song lots of singers screw up sometimes..

At JFK's inauguration, the temperature was just 22 degrees with a wind chill that made it feel like minus 10. And yet: Marian Anderson, an African-American contralto and one of the most celebrated singers of the twentieth century, was able to sing the National Anthem LIVE.

How come Beyonce couldn't when it was 45 degrees out? What a mollycoddled ersatz *cough* celebrity.

At least if Beyonce's gigantic fake bolt-on two halves of a canteloupe hooters hummed a few bars, it would have had serious entertainment value. But this was just tacky.

What the hell does Steve know? He can't sing either. He screams! Beyonce never sings from her gut. She trained her voice to carry a tune. I wasn't expecting a great live performance and to my surprise it wasn't even live at all! Rest in Peace Etta James.

I've been to two Aerosmith concerts and believe me ... he didn't lip sync at those shows. Steven usually sounds awesome unless he's been abusing his vocal cords by smoking, drinking too much, not warming up, no drinking lots of water, not using the special throat lozenges, etc.

I hear he had to get vocal cord surgery because of all of his "live" singing over the years. Steven has one of the best "pig squeal" voices in rock and roll history.

I'm sure Steven is proud of all the "live" singing he's done in his career. I bet privately he thinks Beyonce should have put on her "big girl pants" and got up there and risked sounding a little imperfect at the Obama inauguration.
