As Zooey Deschanel took to center-field in Arlington, Texas on Sunday night, you could hear the skepticism of Rangers fans begin to take hold. Dressed as one part girl-next-door and one part wedding cake, the singer clumsily heeled her way past home plate for an a cappella rendition of the National Anthem.

And from note number one, she nailed every freakin' part.

Deschanel is currently working on her Fox television show 'New Girl,' in which she plays everyone's favorite MPDG, Jess. Even though the show's hilarious antics are shining light on Deschanel's comedic talents, it was last night's performance that probably solidified the She and Him frontwoman as America's new "it" girl, as she roused millions at home with some exemplary patriotism.

Admit it. You were at home, ready to see how Albert Pujols would fare against 25-year-old Derek Holland, and that's when you saw the steely blue eyes of Zooey Deschanel -- eyes that peered across amber waves of grain, directly through your television and into your beer-guzzling soul, unleashing your inner unicorn.
