Those who got goosebumps with Beyonce's performance at the inauguration yesterday may be feeling dupped today since the cat is out of the bag regarding her lyp-syncing during the Star-Spangled Banner. According to a U.S. Marine Corp Band spokeswoman the music and the vocals of Beyonce's "flawless" performance were pre-recorded just in case, and the singer “decided shortly before her performance to rely on the studio version” instead of singing live.

However, Kelly Clarkson was indeed brave enough to sing without any help, according to the spokesperson. Watch both performances below and tell us what you think, who made the better choice?
