Everyone's favorite momma Beyoncé started off a Super Bowl press conference in her usual diva style.

She may have lip-synced the national anthem on one of the most important stages (President Barack Obama's second inauguration, and yes, she admitted it), but she won't when she hits the Super Bowl halftime show stage, which has one of the largest audiences in the world.

And at Thursday's press conference, she set out to prove it.

Before anything was said, she walked onto the stage, asked everyone to stand, and sang the Star-Spangled Banner live.

I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra; it was a live television show... Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check... I did not feel comfortable singing live."

But she did reassure everybody that she would "absolutely be singing live" for the Super Bowl.
