Now that it’s been confirmed that Beyonce lip-synched her flawless performance of the national anthem at yesterday’s presidential inauguration, we can all just crawl up into a hole and cry ourselves to a sweaty, nightmare-laden sleep.

Ok, it’s probably not the worst thing to happen. But I’m getting the feeling that people are feeling pretty betrayed by the superstar. Why am I getting this feeling? Twitter, of course.

Here’s why it’s pretty much confirmed: The NY Post grabbed this quote from a representative of the U.S. Marine Band:

“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day. We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given. We don’t know what the (sic) reason why.”

To crush us. That’s why.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions about the lip-synching fiasco:

And if you want to relive the lie, here it is:
