Singing the national nnthem has become practically a singer's true test—from American Idol alum Pia Toscano to Idol judge Steven Tyler and even Christina Aguilera, who flubbed the lyrics but still sang her brains out. And these aren't the only stars who offer their vocal cords to America's "The Star-Spangled Banner" with style.

R&B icon Toni Braxton wowed the crowd this week with her vocals (and her fine self) at the 3rd Annual Sugar Ray Leonard Big Fighters, Big Cause Charity boxing night, which benefits the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation, at the Santa Monica Pier in Souther California.

And the Brax gets some special props...

...for doing the anthem sans shoes!

Seems Toni was so comfortable with the crowd that she ditched her platform heels and opted to belt out the tune barefoot.

Make the jump to hear who kept their shoes on, and to see loads more celebs get their Star-Spangled on in our patriotic gallery.

Avid hockey game rooter Pia Toscano opted to keep her pumps on when she hit the ice as the St. Louis Blues took on Los Angeles Kings in game three of the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Staples Center in L.A. Pia looked totally nice on the ice by mixing the flashy footwear with her killer Kings jersey (which she later showed off on E! News).

To see what celebs like Zooey Deschanel, Scotty McCreery, Demi Lovato and Jessica Simpson donned when they took to the mic, check out the whole gallery below!
