Video: Beyonce Sings National Anthem at Inauguration

A lot happened at the Presidential Inauguration today, but we can all agree that the best video footage to emerge from the festivities was of Beyonce singing the national anthem. Actually it was Chuck Schumer droning on about something while everybody waited for the president, but I couldn’t find the video. So here’s B.

As for what actually happened, the Onion has a pretty good rundown:

  • 12:00 a.m.–11:59 p.m.: Secret Service freaking out
  • 8:42 a.m.: First of many decisions by an onlooker to just go, right here, rather than lose his spot
  • 9:58 a.m.: Half-shaved Obama tears down White House stairs after having slept through alarm
  • 10:21 a.m.: Mitt Romney lets out a momentary sigh in between pulling up his first and second pant leg
  • 11:15 a.m.: Vice President Biden sworn in on 1991 Playboy featuring the Barbi Twins
  • 12:30 p.m.: Tank filled to brim with stew is rolled out for all in attendance
  • 1:30 p.m.: Presidential dog, Bo, barks national anthem
