Beyonce Admits to Using Backing Track for Inauguration



OK, so Beyonce isn't perfect ... but her performance of The National Anthem moments ago at a press conference for the Super Bowl was pretty darn close to it!

The singer just confirmed reports that she did, in fact, sing with a backing track during Barack Obama's Inauguration last week ... but before that, performed a live version of the song for the crowd.

She then took the podium and asked "Any questions?"

While she could have just dropped the mic and walked off, Beyonce took questions from the press, talking about game day, Destiny's Child rumors and the possibility of a tour in the near future.

Knowles blamed bad weather, a delay and the lack of a proper sound check for her singing along to a pre-recorded track on Obama's big day.

"It was a live television show and a very important moment for me ... I did not feel comfortable taking the risk so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track," she said.

Despite the Internet backlash, Beyonce said she was "very proud" of the performance.

She stayed mum on rumors that Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child would be joining her for game day ... but hinted that she'll be going on tour soon.

She told fans to tune into her Super Bowl performance for a big announcement after her set.

Oh, and if you're wondering: Beyonce has a blue and white toothbrush.

Yeah ...  that was the last question of the presser.
