Watch Anne Hathaway hilariously beat Kelly Clarkson at her own karaoke game

Anne Hathaway knocked Kelly Clarkson off her feet in a game of "Sing That Name That Tune."

If there's anyone you don't want to go up against in a singing contest, it's Kelly Clarkson. The singer who made "American Idol" her success as much as it was theirs is arguably one of the most talented singers alive today. Who would dare to go up against those pipes in a competition?

Anne Hathaway, apparently.

Hathaway proved herself to be no slouch in the musical world with her performance as Fantine in "Les Miserables," but still. We're talking Queen Kelly Clarkson here. It would take some serious guts to compete with the Queen, no matter how well you can sing.


But Hathaway not only agreed to some friendly competition on Clarkson's show, she actually slayed it. Not by besting Clarkson's vocal chops, but by recognizing songs and singing them before Clarkson could—including, as it turned out, one of Clarkson's own greatest hits.

The game was "Sing That Name That Tune," in which Hathaway and Clarkson competed to see who could start singing karaoke to a song after just hearing an intro. Whoever recognized the song first and stepped up to sing it would win the round. In the first two rounds, Clarkson stepped up first, but she didn't get the songs right. (Well, technically, she got the second song right but couldn't sing any of the lyrics, so Hathaway took it.)

"Can you play a fricking song I'll know!" said Clarkson. So the band did. Her hit song, "Since You've Been Gone." And Hathaway still beat her to it.

Watch:

First, kudos on the belting. That's not an easy song to sing. Second, Clarkson's reaction was hilarious. Classic Kelly Clarkson. And Anne Hathaway's cool confidence made a perfect contrast. So fun.

People joked about Anne Hathaway being a theater kid and how that experience led her to this very moment.

It actually gets better when you watch the whole segment, because the song that followed "Since You've Been Gone" ended up creating an awesome David Bowie and Vanilla Ice mash-up.

Was it all scripted? Who knows. It's fun nonetheless and Kelly Clarkson's response is already being made into a GIF, which we'll surely start to see everywhere.

Three people engaged in conversation at a party.

There are some people who live under the illusion that everything they say is deeply interesting and have no problem wasting your time by rambling on and on without a sign of stopping. They’re the relative, neighbor or co-worker who can’t take a hint that the conversation is over.

Of all these people, the co-worker who can’t stop talking may be the most challenging because you see them every day in a professional setting that requires politeness.

There are many reasons that some people talk excessively. Therapist F. Diane Barth writes in Psychology Today that some people talk excessively because they don’t have the ability to process complex auditory signals, so they ramble on without recognizing the subtle cues others are sending.

It may also be a case of someone who thinks they’re the most interesting person in the conversation.

One of these things is not like the other.

Sometimes, life can unexpectedly snatch you away from safety and thrust you into imminent danger. Other times, life can just as quickly turn a dire circumstance into a heartwarming miracle.

Such was the case for a baby hawk who went from being dinner to being adopted by a family of bald eagles near the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia, Canada. The amazing moment was captured by a 24-hour livestream webcam run by GROWLS, a nonprofit organization that helps rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife.

The video shows the seemingly doomed baby hawk being tossed into an eaglet’s nest. Pam McCartney, a GROWLS volunteer who had been watching the livestream at the time, braced herself.

"Usually when I watch, like, David Attenborough and his shows, I can close my eyes or fast forward or whatever, but this was live at the time, and I was just like, oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh," she told CBC.

Much to her surprise, nature seemed to have something else in mind.
