Beyonce has admitted singing along to a pre-recorded track when she performed the national anthem on Inauguration Day.

At a press conference ahead of her Super Bowl performance, the singer said she's a "perfectionist" and wanted her rendition to be memorable.

But, she left no doubts about the power of her voice, belting out a live version for the press.

Jennifer Hudson will join the chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School to sing "America the Beautiful" before Sunday's game.

The chorus features twenty-six children from the school in Newtown, Connecticut, where twenty first-graders and six adults were killed in a shooting rampage.

Lindsay Lohan is suing a company for more than a million dollars she says she's owed for a fashion line.

The actress claims a clothing manufacturer she previously worked with continues to sell items under her 6126 Collection.

Lohan named the line after the birthdate of her idol, Marilyn Monroe.

This is Zara Younis with AP ShowBiz Minute.
