During their papal coverage FOX News went there with the “bitter” remarks:

These are people who are not “clinging” to their religion in any way.
…The crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to the 81 year-old pope!

UPDATE: Kelly Clarkson sang “Ave Maria” for the pope today during the ceremony.
She did an excellent job.
