NEW YORK | Thursday, January 31st, 2013 8:24am EDT

A footage was released showing the diva and her team preparing for their performance at the 2013 Super Bowl.

Behind-the-scenes footage shows Beyoncé and her dancers preparing for their much-anticipated half-time performance at the 2013 Super Bowl which is scheduled on Sunday.

The short video, entitled “Countdown to Touchdown” and uploaded to the singer’s YouTube page, features Beyoncé working on a laptop, while her team of dancers perfect their moves ahead of the big performance.

The 31-year-old pop diva will be taking the stage at the end of the week at the Super Bowl and he fans cannot wait to see the performance.

It has been earlier rumored that Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will reunite with Bey, Michelle spoke out saying the news was “not confirmed” and that she would be performing at the Super Bowl, reports Just Jared.

However, the musical’s site claims that she will not be performing at the half-time of the highly expected event.

Of course, Super Bowl details are released in order to distract the diva’s fans and detractors from her performance at Monday’s presidential inauguration which resulted in scandal.

Beyonce’s incredible performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the Monday’s inauguration was lip-synched, Page Six has confirmed. A rep for the United States Marine Band revealed to reporters that the famous singer decided to perform to a pre-recorded track at the last minute.

“All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day,” Kristin DuBois, a rep for the band tells Page Six.

“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.”

Although the diva hasn’t commented on the issue yet is, sources familiar with the matter said she was upset the scandal had detracted from her historic achievement, reported The Daily Mail.

However, Aretha, who performed at Obama’s first inauguration ceremony four years agi, told reportersw that the singer had ‘done a beautiful job with the pre-record’.

She said: “When I heard the news this evening that she was pre-recorded I really laughed. I thought it was funny because the weather down there was about 46 or 44 degrees and for most singers that is just not good singing weather.”

“When I heard that I just really cracked up. I thought it was really funny, but she did a beautiful job with the pre-record.”

Aretha went on, adding that she had never even thought of pre-recording when she was ask to sing the country’s anthem back in 2009.

She said: “I wanted to give people the real thing and pre-recording never crossed my mind.”

Beyoncé’s Destiny’s Child bandmante Michelle Williams defended the singer, though, telling reporters: “I will say this, it’s not the first or the last time that someone has had to lip-sync.”

She continued: “My greatest singer of all time, Whitney Houston, it came to light that her anthem was in fact lip-synced.”

Williams also mentioned artists who constantly use back-up tracks for live performances: “It’s their personal preference,” she said.

“With big crowds and echoes, you know when it’s a big historical moment, you don’t want any room for any mistakes so I can understand why it was done.”
