To shut up all the haters, Beyonce did a live rendition of the national anthem during a Super Bowl press conference.

Here is what she said about the lip synching controversy during the inauguration:

On her decision to pre-record her National Anthem at the Presidential Inauguration

I am a perfectionist. And 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 tv show and a very, very important, emotional show for me. One of my proudest moments. Due to the weather, due to the delay and lack of proper soundcheck, I did not feel comfortable taking a 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 to a pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I'm very proud of my performance.

Personally, I found this unnecessary.  Everyone knows Beyonce can sing.  I think she should have just ignored it and kept it moving like she does with everything else.
