Kelly Clarkson’s visit to the Mix studio with Gregg Daniels, Fast Freddy and Sue Brady continued with a talk about the 2013 Presidential Inauguration, where Kelly performed. She commented on the great honor of performing, and also addressed the lip-syncing controversy surrounding Beyonce’s performance at the event.
Kelly defended Beyonce, even praising her lip-syncing ability: “She lip-synced the hell out of that!” she exclaims. “That’s like a skill in its own,” she added.
She makes a good point. One of the main reasons the Beyonce lip-syncing controversy continued for so long is viewers weren’t even sure whether or not she was singing live, which Beyonce later admitted she wasn’t.
