OP, you're being silly. Beyonce obviously decided to not over sing the song. She had some interesting runs and notes, she looked pretty and I think it was a good performance. If anything, she seemed a little nervous.
You all were kissing her ass big time last inauguration day when she sang AT LAST.
And like the last time, you'll be back to badmouthing her within a week.
I don't like or dislike Beyonce - but she was FANTASTIC singing today at the inaugural.
She really did an excellent, splendid job.
And Kelly Clarkson was fantastic too. Really great!
Senator Schumer of NY stood up and said WOW! about Kelly Clarkson's singing.
Not a Beyonce fan so I wasn't expecting much. She did a nice job. James Taylor was okay. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir was the music highlight. They were fantastic.
The off-pitch Kelly Clarkson moaning was almost barf-inducing. Only Taylor Swift could have done worse.
She did a nice job, but Nippy set the standard. That has yet to be broken.
B and KC both sucked ass.
I wasn't kissing her ass at the last Inauguration. She was shitty then too. She is just too contrived, artificial and ultimately mediocre.
Although she IS A MUCH BETTER SINGER THAN JANET. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Let me fix that for you.
she IS **NOT** A MUCH BETTER SINGER THAN JANET

And yet I've inspired her in SO many ways...
Oh PLEASE. That mike is enhancing her voice. They use those things on cruise ships and third-rate nightclubs.
Even with the enhancements, Janet still sounds like a contestant on Mediocre Idol. The big guy on the piano has a stronger voice than Janet.
R27 is an idiot who knows NOTHING. Inhancing her voice? Beyotch, please!
Unlike you, R36, I LIVE in the present on Planet EARTH...not sitting in front of my computer watching dated Janet videos. Videos about her vocal range. Ooooh, peaches, you gimme the giggles!! You'd have more luck finding Kim Kardashian's hymen.
I dunno, R37, is that supposed to be an insult? I mean, I think it is, but you kinda lost me with the "peaches" thing. Anyway, not only are you sitting in front of your computer watching Janet, but you're so obviously pressed. LOL!
R37 Janet is SO fabulous that one could only hope that the divinity of her whisper would touch your ears, darling.
Enjoy The Singing Wig, though....if that's possible.
J Hud sounded dreadful.
Beyonce's pre-recorded national anthem was better than the version by Roseanne Barr from a few years ago.
When I saw KC above I thought it was KC and the Sunshine Band. I've never heard either of those two gals sing but I'll take the disco era KC any day.
R8, Texas has double the population of Illinois, so that Obama barely received more votes in Texas than Obama in Illinois is not much of a recommendation. Of course, they are lying about the Census. This year just 30% of Texans cast ballots, vs. 44% of Floridians, resulting in more than half a million more votes for president in Florida than in Texas, despite the latter's 7 million population advantage.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
