Say what you want about Beyonce. Lord knows, plenty of you do. But, you absolutely can not say that she doesn't know how to put on a show. And, she proved it once again yesterday when she sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama and killed it despite experiencing some pretty major technical difficulties. Even in the freezing-cold weather down in Washington, D.C., Bey managed to cause quite an uproar on the Internet for her electric performance of the nation's anthem.
"The camera picks up Joe Biden smiling a big open-mouthed smile," a critic wrote on Gawker after the performance. "The U.S. Marine Band closes us out. And Beyonce is now the President."
Pretty much. When it comes to performances, Beyonce runs the world. It's one of the reasons that, in addition to the Presidential Inauguration, Beyonce will also be making headlines in less than two weeks following her performance at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. And, how do we know this? Well, because just about every single time Beyonce performs in front of a large crowd, she steals the show.
