In a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the hilarious late-night host admitted that when he was a kid, he wasn't exactly sure what the national anthem meant!
So to see if today's kiddies are more knowledgeable on the true meaning behind The Star Spangled-Banner, he sent a reporter to Hollywood Boulevard to quiz some unsuspecting children!
Jimmy Kimmel and his crew didn't go easy on them either, as they stumped the little ones with questions like who wrote the national anthem and what the heck a rampart is! We're gonna go out on a limb and say there's more than a few adults who don't know what a rampart is! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the cute clip (above)!

Why didn't anyone step up to help this poor girl?? The whole crowd had to do something near the end, after an agonizing few minutes!!
A lot of people give singers flak when they mess up the national anthem, knowing that everyone's been singing it for years (and still, this woman might be Canadian, we're not positive!) — but guess what?? Just because you've known it since you were a kid doesn't mean that you've been singing it in front of thousands of people staring at you since you were a kid!!
We TOTALLY feel for this girl during the Memorial Cup Halifax vs Portland match, where she flubbed the anthem to the point of making everyone cringe (and some awful people laughed!) — but we can't blame her at all!
Keep your head up and learn from your mistakes! Next time might be better, and we hope you DO get a next time!

Out of all this things in her closet, THIS is what she chose to wear?!
Emmy Rossum may have nailed the National Anthem at the New York Mets opening day, but we can't say the same about her style.
The Shameless actress hit the field in a not so take me out to the ball game-friendly cobalt blue Rebecca Taylor frayed tweed dress with leather sleeves and Rupert Sanderson sandals.
Even worse than the strike out of a dress were Emmy's curly extensions. It's like her hairstylist clipped them in and sent her on her way.
Sigh. We know you can do better, Emmy. We're just waiting for you to prove it!

Is there anyone more on top of the world than Beyoncé??
You’d be hard up to try and find someone who could beat out Beyoncé’s last couple months that included singing the National Anthem at President Barack Obama’s inauguration and ruling the Super Bowl halftime show.
And now, Queen Bey isn’t slowing down as she’s all set to headline one night at the ESSENCE Festival.
Beyoncé will be back at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans over the July 4th holiday to do her bootylicious best once again.
Time to buy a plane ticket!!
The festival couldn’t be more excited to have snagged the superstar for what will be an AH-Mazing performance as Essence Communications President Michelle Ebanks commented:

Ugh! This really chafes our chode!
At least one TV producer wasn't happy with Alicia Keys' absolutely amazeballz rendition of our national anthem before last night's big game!
In fact, her or she went so far as to call Alicia's performance "disrespectful"!
Was the talented songstress off key? Or out of tune? Did she mangle the lyrics? Did she drape herself in the flag of Soviet Russia?!
No! She was a Girl on Fire — her classic kick-off to Super Bowl XLVII was FLAWLESS!
So what was the problem!?
Well, one TV producer said

INCREDIBLE! AMAZING! PERFECTION!
Beyonce just proved, once and for all, that she is indeed the Queen B of music!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to watch Bey sing the National Anthem LIVE at this afternoon's Super Bowl Press Conference!
And to all the haters out there, let us just echo Bey's beautiful sentiment that she made during the Q&A:
"Love haters! NO SHADE. NO HATE!!!"
Bow down to our Queen!!!!

From one incredible singer to another, we’re just dying to know what Alicia Keys is thinking!
And boy does she let it be known when finally talking about Beyoncé’s lip synching drama in regard to her still totes powerful National Anthem performance for President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
Ch-ch-check out Alicia’s no holds barred comments (above)!
And remember, Alicia will be singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl!
Yes, the very same Super Bowl where Bey is performing the half-time show!
Will Alicia try to top Beyoncé's National Anthem? Will both ladiez go live? Or will Alicia lip synch to make Bey feel better?
We’ve never been so ridiculously pumped for the Super Bowl!!
