1. She did a very beautiful job, (from someone who is very critical of how the Anthem is often sung.)

4. I also am generally critical of how the anthem is often sung, but I agree she did a perfect job.

So many singers can't even hit the notes right! And then others think they need to embroider or jazz it up, and I hate that.

11. Absolutely flawless- and you're right, I hate when they try to add their own super-embellishments

So many moments of grace to cherish when the Obamas are involved.

7. Had never realized Beyonce could sing so well and were so

beautiful. These are so obvious that even a deaf man should be able to hear and a blind man see.

9. She will be doing the half time show for the Superbowl...

I am not that big of a fan, I will probably be puttering around in the kitchen, making a sandwich around then!

12. Confirmed: Beyonce DID lip-synch at the inauguration

All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, a rep for the band tells Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”

It's the NYP, but this is the kind of story they usually get right.
