A little kid adorably battled through the hiccups while singing the Australian National Anthem before a baseball game.

Don't you just hate getting the hiccups? For one thing, they always seem to strike at the most inopportune moment. And for another, just when you think they're gone, they come out of nowhere to—hic!—strike again.

The next time it happens, you may want to follow the lead of 7-year-old Ethan Hall, the kid who caught a case of the hiccups while belting out the Australian National Anthem in front of a packed house before a baseball game over the weekend.

Impeccably outfitted in red vest and tie, the little boy was performing the "Advance Australia Fair" at Cooper's Stadium in Adelaide on Friday night when the hiccups started pretty much right from the get-go.

But instead of breaking into laughter, stopping mid-performance, or running off the field to grab a much-needed sip of water, the little pro just kept right on going, even as players from both teams struggled to maintain their composure.

Major props!

Ethan finished the amazing performance to a huge round of applause from the crowd, plus several well-deserved high-fives as he ran around the home team's dugout. And now, of course, the video of his amazing performace is going viral.

How cute is that brave little dude?

"They're gonna have a hard time following that tomorrow," the announcer can be heard saying towards the end of the video, which now has more than 1 million views. "That's the best I've seen all year and I don't think anything can top it."

Neither do we!
