We wish we would've taken ourselves out to this ballgame!!

On Wednesday, the LA Dodgers played against the Colorado Rockies, and even though the Dodgers lost 7 - 3, the game was still AH-MAYZING because it was a star studded night.

Everyone from Julianne Hough, her parents, Bob and Cokie Hough, Ginnifer Goodwin, Chris Tucker, Arsenio Hall and Paula Abdul were in attendance, so the night was definitely full of sparkle.

And seeing that the ballroom dancer and the Once Upon a Time actress even got to go on the field to throw some balls, the matchup was that much more spectacular!

We love it when celebs go to sporting events!!

Darren Criss And Jane Lynch Re-Create The Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey Feud On Glee! Listen To The New Songs This Week HERE!

Aw, man! Sh-t is about to get SERIOUSLY real on this week's upcoming episode of Glee, you guys!

And when say real, we mean hair-pulling-"Oh no she DIDN'T!"-bestie vs. bestie-REAL!

That's right, Mr. Schue is now entirely aware of what exactly his former student Finn Hudson pulled on his run-away bride lady love right before their wedding, which sets the scene PERFECTLY for what to expect from our friends in New Directions and beyond…a good, old-fashioned Feud!

But the fighting isn't isolated to just Matthew Morrison and Cory Monteith!

At least, as far as MUSICAL fighting is concerned, anyway!

Because Darren Criss and Jane Lynch - yes, you heard us correctly, JANE EFFING LYNCH - will be duking it out in the spirit of two divas who have certainly had their fair share of disagreements, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, in an EPIC mash-up of I Still Believe and Super Bass…which you can enjoy (above)!

Meanwhile, make sure to check out Blake Jenner and Alex Newell teaming up for Elton John's The Bitch Is Back and Madonna's Dress You Up; Naya Rivera giving her best Paula Abdul in Cold Hearted Snake; Dean Geyer and Lea Michele doing Marina and the Diamonds proud with How To Be A Heartbreaker; and Blake teaming up with Jacob Artist for Tegan and Sara's CloserAFTER THE JUMP!!!
