Obama’s on fire!

Those were the words recently belted by a certain 14-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys.  One of many acts on hand to serenade the First Family for the inauguration of their return to the White House, Keys lent a fiery version of her most recent #1 album’s title track - ‘Girl On Fire’.

This time, however, with a twist to commemorate the occasion.  See it all below:

        Anybody can take clothes off and then go into a studio to sing a song that was written. produced & arranged by someone else (also then to have vocals fixed for CD)

    She needs to take a 2 week break for the Superbowl. When Alicia is good she is damn good but when she’s bad it’s horrible and hard to listen to. She should take a break and relax her voice for the national anthem.

    Just checked the iTunes charts and this performance has done exactly what I thought it would do for Beyonce (which is absolutely NOTHING). Kelly Clarkson has soared on iTunes, obtaining the #16 spot on the singles chart and the #33 spot on the album chart. Beyonce on the other hand is nowhere to be seen.

    It was so funny seeing THIEFyonce get all cocky when holding the mic, only to deliver a mediocre performance and get slayed by Kelly Clarkson. It was even funnier, after trending worldwide, to see her not reflect this hype on the iTunes charts lmao.

    After the flea hive got all cocky about how Beyonce is slaying, I cannot seem to see this supposed “slayage” reflect on the iTunes and yet Kelly Clarkson, who according to the s*** hive did not deliver as good a performance as their demi-god, has all but soared on the iTunes charts.

    I like her voice, most of the time, and her songs. I can’t stand her attitude though. She comes off like and arrogant b****.

    Beyoncé has been widely praised for her beautiful rendition of the national anthem at Monday’s presidential inauguration.

    But even after seeing her triumphantly pull her earpiece out as she belted out the words, buzz is now bubbling up that the superstar wasn’t singing it live.

    TheTimes of London is reporting that a spokeswoman for the Marine Corps Band says it is standard procedure to record a backing track and that Beyoncé decided soon before stepping to the microphone to use it.

    UPDATE, 5:28 p.m. ET: The U.S. Marine Corps is backing off earlier statements that Beyoncé lip-synced the national anthem, the Associated Press reports.

    According to a statement, the band did not play live, however, Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Gregory Wolf tells AP no one in the band is in a position to know whether Beyonce’s vocal performance was live or pre-recorded.

    UPDATE, 1 p.m. ET: Master Sgt. Kristin DuBois, spokeswoman for the President’s Own United States Marine Band, confirms to USA TODAY’s Maria Puente that Beyoncé was lip-syncing.

    It’s standard operating procedure for musicians to pre-record crucial music such as Hail to the Chief and The Star-Spangled Banner. “You can’t have a presidential inauguration and not have Hail to the Chief and Star-Spangled Banner,” she says.

    And it’s not unprecedented to use the pre-recorded track, as Yo-Yo Ma did last time, classical instruments being delicate in cold weather. But the band performed live for the entire ceremony, except for Beyoncé.

    DuBois says they were “surprised” to be given instructions during the ceremonies that they were to stand and pretend to play their instruments during the national anthem, and they “don’t know” why that decision was made. Or even who made it. Probably Beyoncé. “It’s not what we would have chosen, but we were instructed to do it so we did.”‘

    As for Beyoncé, “we all know she has the pipes,” she said. “It wasn’t because she can’t sing it or because the band can’t play it, because we can. … We performed live, as we have for every inauguration since 1801.”

    She said that every four years somebody wants to write a story about “was it live or was it Memorex?”

    She also says Kelly Clarkson sang live, and that the band’s staff arranger wrote the special arrangement of My Country, ‘Tis of Thee that she used.

    If anyone can handle brutal playing conditions, the band can, she says. “This group of people are such pros, they can make it work no matter what. They are so accustomed to playing under any condition.”

    Washingtonian.com posed the question, too: “Did Beyoncé Lip-Sync the Star-Spangled Banner?”

    Washingtonian’s Sophie Gilbert writes, “To press seated just below the podium, in front of the ‘President’s Own’ Marine Corps Band, it was evident that the band wasn’t actually playing during the song — even though band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn was conducting energetically and the band members mimicked blowing into their instruments.”

    And offering more possible evidence, Gilbert notes that “the day before the ceremony, Beyoncé posted pictures to her Instagram account that appeared to show her in a recording studio. In one, she holds a copy of the sheet music to The Star Spangled Banner in front of a microphone attached to a recording device, and in another she sits in front of recording equipment while members of the Marine Corps Band stand clutching sheet music behind her.”

    Indeed, Beyoncé did share those photos on her website.
