That settles it, right?

After the media maelstrom that erupted surrounding Beyonce‘s decision to lip sync the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration, the singer took a stand today (Jan. 31).

At a press conference for the NFL, Queen Bey opted to perform the song live to silence all her haters.

“I am a perfectionist,” the R&B superstar said. “I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra. This was an emotional show for me, and due to the weather I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. This day was about President Obama.”

In the press conference she also addressed whether or not she will be performing live at the Super Bowl.

“I will absolutely be singing live,” she said. This is what I was born to do.”

Watch her deliver on a live rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” below, then ask the reporters — ahem, the doubters — in attendance if they had any questions. Notably, none did.
