Beyonce faced the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Thursday, and sang the National Anthem, not only live, but a capella!

To spread the icing on the cake, the singer, who has been hammered in the media for lip-syncing at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, laughed lightly when she was done and asked, ”Any questions?”

 “Well, I am a perfectionist. And one thing about it is that I practice until my feet bleed,” Beyonce said. “I did not have time to practice with the orchestra.

I am very proud of my performance.”.
