Josh was with his brother Chris, who will also celebrate his birthday this weekend (you all know they were both born on Feb. 27, right?) and next to Josh, the man in the glasses, is George Lopez, comedian and entertainer.
looks like they all had a great time!

Wait.....what?!

I would sit on anyone who asked me who he was. Seriously. Sit on them HARD until I'd played them all his albums. Twice. And then make them eat one of my socks......



just sayin.

That was, without a doubt, the best he ever sang the anthem. Just like it was written..no fancy stuff. I am so proud of him. I loved it!!!! He showed them how it should be done. Amen.

Thanks to everyone for the pictures and videos of the performance! I was on pins and needles all weekend waiting for this performance. I thought he sang beautifully and flawlessly and he looked great. His voice was so strong and the low notes were amazing. He showed the world and all the "vocal gymnasts" the right way to pay tribute to this great country. One reviewer of Josh's performance paid him a great compliment. He said Josh's performance was the blueprint for all future performances. The next person who sings this at a big event is going to have to do a great job because they're going to be compared to Josh. I've never heard Josh sing acapella before and it was wonderful. It shows he really takes care of himself and his voice. I'm glad Chris was with him. Josh said events like these are more special when he has a family member with him. Thank you Josh for your stellar performance. You made my day!

Gorgeous pics everyone - I especially like the relaxed ones, after the performance, - which was of course fantastice. That's how it should be done!

@Kittyboo - I agree totally with your comment. How could anyone not know who he is????? I mean, I know he's not that well know over here in the UK, but I thought in the States he was a megastar?

It's funny, I STILL run across ppl who don't know him at all, untill I mention YRMU :angry: and it makes me mad bc he has so much BETTER and more PWERFUL stuff, I never was a fan of that song...it's OK, but I'm sick of it now.

I feel strange trying to explain what a Grobanite is to a non-Josh fan, they look at u like it's a disease, and then I tell them, "No, that's 'Groban-ITIS' which is cured by his singing, and I'M a Groban-ITE which means I am a die-hard fan of him! They give me funny looks but I don't care.

Saved all these...There's probably a thread for them, but I saved all Miranda's or who ever posted them! They're Gawgeous!!!!!! :P

What irks me about this statement, is not the statement itself, it's that IMO, people should know by now who Josh is...I mean, he's been in the music industry now for a little over ten years, sold millions of records, had the biggest selling album of 2007 and people still don't recognize him?? I just don't get it. :blink:

Body language speaks volumes. What does this pic say about Josh versus Chris? Any psyche majors out there?

I know!!
some time ago someone posted a tweet saying: gosh, is Josh Groban a real singer? I though he was a made up character on Glee...
I am used to people in my country not knowing who he is, but rather baffled that there are still many in his own country who don't know... things like the NBA game or the spoof he did on Jimmy Kimmel keep putting him on the map. :)

Violet, maybe Chris was sitting leaning with his elbows on his knees and just straightened his back to clap... he does not necessarily look tense or ill at ease to me

Violet, I don't know much about psychology, but I'd have to say that due to how both men are sitting, that, in itself, may be somewhat representative of their personalities. Josh's legs are crossed at the ankles, could be for a couple of reasons...

1. He knew he'd be photographed, since he sat court side and he chose to sit with his legs crossed.
2. Comfortable position for him.

Chris is sitting with his legs slightly open...again could be a comfort thing or it could be nothing at all...maybe he sits like that all the time.

Again, this is pure speculation on my part.

I think it's just two guys sitting courtside.The others around them are sitting in different positions.It's no big deal.It's making something out of nothing.
