Beyoncé opened her Super Bowl press conference this afternoon with a flawless two minute live rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner."
"Any questions?" she asked reporters.
Take THAT, haters! Watch AFTER THE JUMP ...
Beyoncé said that she will "absolutely" sing live during Super Bowl Sunday. The performer also responded to the faux controversy surrounding the inauguration, reports USA Today.
"I am a perfectionist," she explained when asked about the inaugural performance, explaining that she chose to use "a backing track" due to a lack of sound check and the high stakes surrounding the event. "I'm very proud of my performance," she added.
She'll be ready come Sunday, though. "I will absolutely be singing live," she said of the Super Bowl performance. "I am well-rehearsed. This is what I was born to do."
