According to The Times UK, a spokesperson for the Marine Corp Band confirmed Beyonce's decision to use the pre-recorded track.
"We did pre-record it and it was Beyonce's decision at the last minute to go with the pre-recorded version," the spokesperson said.
"We pre-recorded all music as a matter of course and have done since time immemorial. This is our 54th inauguration… There is no question of there not being any music — it's not because the performer cannot do it."
