Page Six is reporting that a rep for the United States Marine Band has confirmed that Beyoncé lip-synched the National Anthem at President Obama's inauguration on Monday.

“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, a rep for the band tells Page Six. “We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the reason why.”

The confirmation comes just hours after the Washingtonian published a piece posing the question in response to a picture that Queen Bey posted of herself and members of the Marine Corps Band in a recording studio.
