Chris "Birdman" Andersen and Mike Miller Performed "Ice Ice Baby"

The Miami Heat's Shane Battier hosted his second-annual "South Beach Battioke Celebrity Karaoke Contest" on Monday night.

The event has turned into a must-see as members of the Heat get up on stage and sing karaoke for charity, with proceeds going to the Battier Take Charge Foundation.

And while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade performed some Michael Jackson and members of the Heat performed Whitney Houston's "The Greatest Love of All," the night belonged to Mike Miller and newly acquired Chris "Birdman" Andersen.

The duo performed Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby."

Because of course they did.

And it's kinda awesome.

Hot Hot Hoops got a front-row seat of the performance, and the result was, well, what one might expect from Mike Miller and Chris Andersen.

(Because they're white, you see.)

The greatest takeaway from the video -- aside from all the awkward whiteness (Mike Miller is wearing a cardigan and a big-ass dollar-sign neck chain!) -- is that Chris Andersen is fully ensconced as a member of the Heat.

Here's to hoping that he's the rebounding fiend we're all longing for and that his ten-day contract gets extended the rest of the way.

Until then, sit back, relax, and enjoy the crazy whiteness!
