WELL THAT'S DISAPPOINTING!
If you think Beyonce sounded a little too perfect singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at President Obama's inauguration on Monday, you'd be right. ABC News confirms that she lip-synced her performance. Master Sergeant Kristin DuBois of the Marine Corp band, which backed up Beyonce on Monday, tells ABC News that the singer decided to lip-sync to a pre-recorded track. Said DuBois, "We all know Beyonce can sing. We all know the Marine Corp Band can play. We do not know why she decided to go with the pre-recorded music at the last minute."
However, a later statement from the Marine Corps said, "There was no opportunity for Ms. Knowles-Carter to rehearse with the Marine Band before the Inauguration so it was determined that a live performance by the band was ill-advised for such a high-profile event....Regarding Ms. Knowles-Carter's vocal performance, no one in the Marine Band is in a position to assess whether it was live or pre-recorded." A hint that Beyonce did not sing live can be found on her Instagram account. On January 20, the singer posted pictures that showed her in a recording studio, holding a copy of "The Star Spangled Banner" sheet music. Pre-recording a performance before a big event is not uncommon, as a safeguard in the event there are technical difficulties or other unforeseen circumstances. ABC News confirms that Kelly Clarkson's performance of "My Country 'Tis of Thee" was live.

Sledding Derby Rules
Only regular cardboard, duct tape, masking tape, scotch tape and paint may be used to construct the cardboard sleds.
Only corrugated cardboard may be used - no industrial pressed cardboard, no plastics of any kind.
Sled can't be wrapped in plastic material.
Sleds must have a front, rear, bottom, and two sides.
No wood, glue, industrial adhesives, staples, ropes, twine or wire will be permitted on the sled.
Keep designs family-friendly. No profanity.
How to Build a Sled
Step 1: Determine which materials you need for your sled.
Make a plan. Create a simple blueprint or drawing of what you would like. For something simple, use a rectangular piece of corrugated cardboard with a rounded front. Include an extra layer of cardboard at the base to increase durability and longevity Have Fun! Pick something wild or goofy!
Step 2: Collect corrugated cardboard, duct tape, scissors, and any decorations you want to use to personalize your sled. Try to gather like cardboard: thickness, etc. When you think you have enough tape, triple the amount!
Step 3: Cut your cardboard according to your new blueprint and try to make the edges as clean and straight as possible. Choose a piece with a rounded edge for the top front of the cardboard. Using a design that includes folding the cardboard could weaken the overall construction of your sled, just keep that in mind.
Step 4: Add sides by cutting out cardboard pieces that match the length of your sled. Make them as high as you wish and attach using tape and reinforce with more duct tape. You can also include a roof and make a any car, spaceship, Bat mobile, or design you would like.
Step 5: Get creative! Paint and tape it up to your very own specifications, and dream!
Step 6: Use decorations such as emblems, logos, glitter, or stickers to personalize your sled. Don’t forget to decorate your pilot’s helmet and find a fun costume for him or her!
