Will Ferrell and Boxer Manny Pacquiao Sing 'Imagine' on 'Kimmel' (VIDEO)

Will Ferrell and Boxer Manny Pacquiao Sing 'Imagine' on 'Kimmel'Will Ferrell has a musical soul. True, he doesn't have much musical talent -- but he makes up for it with his lack of shame. Plus, he's ready to sing anytime, anywhere ... even if it would be better to stay silent.

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), the comic did a duet of John Lennon's 'Imagine' -- along with Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao. The boxer is a nine-time world champion ... but he's not known for his vocal abilities either. Why were the two of them singing? Well, Manny is a recording artist in the Philippines. But English isn't his native language -- and, well, his singing career is a little sketchy.

Would Manny and Will score a "knockout" with their rendition of 'Imagine'? ... Not really. But they gave it their all.

Ferrell kicked things off in his usual style: "Imagine there's no he-eaaven," he began, as his voice cracked. Then Pacquiao chimed in: "Imagine there's no count-rieess." Wow. Not so great. It's hard to tell who butchered the song more, but we definitely can't "un-imagine" their rendition of the classic ballad.

Still, we're going to stick to making fun of Mr. Ferrell, and declare Manny the winner of their sing-off. It's safer to go with Manny here. After all, would you want to tell one of the toughest fighters in the world that he's off-key? ...No? We wouldn't either.

Will Farrell is a TOOL. A complete hack. He should be in the shitecan with Dane Cook.

I thought it was funny. Manny didn't sing too badly, considering English is not his primary language, and Will meant to be a little off key. That is what comedians do.

Unlike Bob Dylan & Joan Baez, Lennon didn't know when to shut his yap. He might still be alive but he was just too controversial/communist.

Moronic statement by Texas NDN. First, Dylan never shut up for anybody. Second, it is the narrow minded idiots like Texas NDN who cause contoversy.

Loved it! Nice to see a few of you are so in touch with your hatreds this morning. How the words of that timeless song must annoy you! Now go vote and pass that hatred along.

Wow, not only are you a bigot, but you're a stupid one at that.

Will Ferrell is Catholic.
Jimmy Kimmel's middle name is Christian, so that should give you a clue to his relgion.
Manny Pacquiao is a Catholic.

So which one is the "Jew fagot" again?
Oh yeah, fagot is actually spelled faggot.
Moron.
