Did You Know The National Anthem Is Actually Really Long?! Watch The Patriotic Hijinks HERE!

Filed under: Broadway BabiesSilly!ZportzBaseballFunny

Anyone who's ever been to a sporting event knows they all start the same way: with the Star-Spangled Banner!

But there's one thing sportsball fans might not be aware of. The version they usually hear is actually just ONE verse of the national anthem!

So when Kinky Boots star Lena Hall was asked to sing before a Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball game, she decided to give the attendees a little something extra!

Just as the words "And the home of the brave" were leaving her mouth, fans were preparing to put their hats back on and the players started heading back to the dugout! That is, until Lena started singing ANOTHER verse!

Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious reactions to the extended version of the national anthem (above)!

Jimmy Kimmel Asks Kids About The True Meaning Of The National Anthem!! Watch HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsSilly!Jimmy KimmelHolidazeCute Kidz

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!

Listen To The Boston Bruins Crowd Join The Star Spangled Banner! CHILLS!

Filed under: InspirationSad SadRunningViolenceHockey

Boston's Marathon tragedy wasn't enough and would never be enough to keep the city and the nation from continuing on with their lives, just as strong as ever! This gave us the right kind of chills AND made us tear up!

That's why the Boston Bruins game — the first major event since the attack — meant so much to the city. Not only did they have an amazing turnout of fearless spectators, but when the Star Spangled Banner started to play, it was a moment so powerful, so moving, that you just have to watch and listen for yourselves.

So much inspiration, so much resilience!

Atrocious acts like on Monday could NEVER, EVER defeat us!

Beyoncé FAKED IT! National Anthem Lip Synching Confirmed By Inaugural Official!

Filed under: Music MinuteOops!BeyonceBarack Obama

YEP! It's true!

Empress Beyoncé lip synched to her own beautiful voice during President Obama's inauguration!

An inauguration official CONFIRMED our suspicions when they said in a statement:

"She did not sing live. . . Because she didn't have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band. It was all Beyoncé."

Ah well, she may not have sang the Star Spangled Banner live, but what came out of that microphone was pure GOLD to our ears!

And we're sure Lady Bey will more than make up for this not singing live business when she brings her A game at this year's Super Bowl halftime show!

We know you can SLAY live, girl! Don't sell yourself short!

Beyoncé is under some SCORCHING fire after speculation that she lip synched her Star Spangled Banner performance at the presidential inauguration, but at least she has Jennifer Lopez and LeAnn Rimes to help put out the flames!

J.Lo and LeAnn agree that President Barack Obama's BFF probably didn't have a choice!

The country singer took time away from throwing Brandi Glanville shade and told Jimmy Kimmel:

"I'm actually taking up for her on this one. There are times when people will ask you to do it, and they will not let you do it unless you do it because they want control over what happens."

For once, LeAnn is actually making sense!

And during her interview on The Daily Show, Jennifer admitted:
