How much did tickets cost?
The music director who worked with Whitney claims she didn't lip-synch the National Anthem at the SB. He said with the crowd noise and fly over of the jets it would be impossible for her to keep her pitch on unless it was performed live. He said because there was some talk of her lip-synching the National Anthem to quiet everyone down she sang it again at another event but did so acapella which is without any instrumental and she once again nailed it.
I don't think Houston syned it either. That girl could sing in a driving rainstorm.
Performing the National Anthem live especially at a SB in front of the world or at an inauguration can be terrifying for even the most accomplished singers. It's been flubbed many times but it can be screwed up when lip-syncing to live music if everything isn't synchronized. The timing has to be just right between the live band and the recorded voice or it becomes obvious the song is pre recorded and being lip-synced. Many at the inauguration noticed the band wasn't really playing they were faking it which is what got everyone wondering if Beyonce was lip-syncing.
This wasn't the case during Whitney's rendition of the National Anthem at the SB the band was clearly playing their instruments plus she was having to deal with crowd noise. If you go back and carefully listen to Whitney's performance near the end of it as the crowd begins to cheer she raises her voice right at that moment. It's impossible to time that out if the song wasn't done live. To me that was clear evidence that she was actually singing that night. The only reason some still think Whitney lip-synced the National Anthem was because her performance was so perfect. Even in a studio it usually takes a number of takes to get a song just right.

I think she really sang it...
Not embedding for some reason
Whitney did lip sync and I don't care if Beyonce did it also
Where's the proof? The music director who worked with her claims she didn't.
I was there. She lip synced.
How do you know? It seems no one who shares your opinion can provide any proof she lip-synced. She was asked if she lip-synced and denied it and the music director who worked with her on the National Anthem also denied she lip-synced. Her rendition of the National Anthem at the 91 SB was one of her greatest performances because it was sung live and she nailed it. That performance would have never received the attention it did had she lip-synced. Are you going to tell me the band that was performing was also faking it that night?
Why do people care?
Why have the performer there if they're just going to lip sync? If that's the case then just play the music over the sound system and be done with it.
Maybe you should just close your eyes during the performances and pretend that's exactly what's happening. :laugh2:
Because gazing at her is part of the draw?
BTW, if it hasn't been suggested already, the lady, if indeed she didn't vocalize live, might well have been concerned foremost with protecting her brand. Many a SNAFU can rear its ugly head in these thrown-together events, and I reckon she wanted to play it safe. IOW there's a fear perhaps that her adoring fans might not be so enthusiastic had things gone awry. Safe to say that Image/perceptions do greatly matter in that business.
Besides, Ifn I didn't know better, I'd say this was a publicity stunt to ensure the folks are talking and tweeting about her. Crazier things have happened...
If you were referring to Beyonce she did lip-sync the fact the band was faking playing their instruments confirms it. I got caught up talking about Whitney Houston's performance at the 91 SB and thought you were referring to her.
