During the conference, Beyonce admitted that she used a pre-recorded track during her performance at the inauguration. She said, "I am a perfectionist. One thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed and 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. On of my proudest moment. Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the 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." (
When asked if she will be singing live this Sunday at the Super Bowl, she said, "I will absolutely be singing live. I am well rehearsed and I will absolutely be singing live. This was what I was born to do. What I'm born for."
On whether Destiny's Child and Jay-Z performing with her at the Super Bowl, she said, "I can't really give you any details. I'm sorry."
