Leave it to Kelly Clarkson to put this whole Beyonce Lip Sync Gate thing in proper perspective.

Asked about the controversy in an interview with K-Frog Radio this week, the original American Idol replied of singing at the Inauguration:

With the Internet abuzz over the Michelle Obama Inauguration dress from last night, let's not forget: The First Lady was not the only fashionable star in attendance at this event.
