As featured at NFL Network that day, Beyonce opened the Super Bowl press conference at Conference Room C at the Ernest N Morial Convention Center by asking the audience to stand up and performed a cappella of the “The Star-Spangled Banner.” And yes, she sang live and obviously, with flying colors.

“Any questions?” Beyonce asked the press, right after her stunning live performance that silenced the entire room for more than two minutes. It has been 10 days since she sang National Anthem during the Obama inauguration with the US Marine Corps Band, where she allegedly lip-synched the song.

“I am a perfectionist, and one thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed. I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. It was a live television show and a very, very important emotional show for me. One of my proudest moments.” Beyonce told the crowd.

“Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the president and the inauguration, and I wanted to make him and my country proud. So I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry, and I’m very proud of my performance.” Beyonce added.

“I will absolutely be singing live. I am well rehearsed and I will absolutely be singing live. This is what I was born to do. What I’m born for.” Beyonce replied, when asked if she will sing live in the upcoming Super Bowl XLVII this coming Sunday, February 3. However, she did not mention anything about the rumored Destiny’s Child reunion.
