Beyoncé sings national anthem live in New Orleans
Beyoncé's had a busy year -- the singer, performing at Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show, delivered a memorable, and memorably less-than-live, rendition of the national anthem at Barack Obama's inauguration last week. For the first time since the lip-synching scandal, the singer opened the floor to questions at a pre-Super Bowl press conference in New Orleans -- but not before belting a live rendition of the national anthem to assembled reporters.
The a cappella anthem didn't stop the questions from a generally reverent press. "Did any sound come out of your vocal chords during the inauguration?" asked the most aggressive of the group.
