For the second straight year, people are talking about the singing of the Canadian national anthem at the MLB All-Star Game.

Thankfully, this year’s rendition was much less controversial.

Canadian singer/songwriter Jocelyn Alice was tasked with singing O Canada before the Midsummer Classic on Tuesday in Miami. No, the Calgary native didn’t change any of the lyrics, but she did add something extra: a giggle.

Wearing a Toronto Blue Jays jersey, Alice appeared to giggle after singing the lyrics “God keep our land,” before continuing with the rest of the anthem.

Did Twitter notice, you ask?

OH YOU BETTER BELIEVE TWITTER NOTICED.

So did Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak.

Watch for yourself:

This is the second straight year of controversy concerning the singing of O Canada at the MLB All-Star Game. Remigio Pereira – now formerly of the Tenorschanged the lyrics to include “all lives matter” before last year’s game in San Diego.
