1. No link, but what I read elsewhere...

Is that it's customary to have the Military Band and the featured vocalists pre-record the songs.

I can imagine they do this in case there are any last minute hang ups or tech problems, but that sometimes they can choose to use the pre-recordeds.

Scratchy throat, missing oboeist? Use the back up tapes!

2. To herself.

A recording she made for the event. Forgivable because of cold weather on a singer's throat/vocal chords. Yo-Yo Ma did the same 4 years ago. His instrument doesn't perform well when cold.

3. Yeah, I believe she did. But it's not a big deal.
