Beyonce Says, 'Take That" by Belting National Anthem at Press Conference
Ever since Beyonce lip-synced the National Anthem at President Obama's inauguration, people have been trash talking her. So Thursday in New Orleans Beyonce put all the trash talking to rest at a press conference. She belted out an a cappella version of the song then took questions. She said she will "absolutely be singing live" during the Super Bowl half time show. As for lip-syncing the anthem, Beyonce said there were a number of reasons she chose to do it....weather and the fact that she didn't have a chance to rehearse with the orchestra beforehand.
Former "Idol" Judge Kara DioGuardi A Mommy

Jennifer Hudson to Perform with Sandy Hook Students
Beyonce may be doing the half time show, and Alicia Keys may be doing the Star Spangled Banner, but I have a feeling it will be the singing of "America the Beautiful" that will steal the show. According to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson will join 26 students from Sandy Hook Elementary School for "America the Beautiful" before the game. Each student will represent one person who lost their life at the school shooting in Newtown in December.
