Posted on Jan 28, 2015 | 12:00pm

Some of the most beloved CBS characters have some serious singing talent. These epic songs and performances that have appeared on your favorite shows deserve to be recognized for their outstanding achievements.

1. Best Rock Performance: “Sweet Bernadette” by Howard Wolowitz from The Big Bang Theory
(Watch The Big Bang Theory Thursdays at 8/7c)

When Howard Wolowitz made a fool of himself by proposing, he sings this song, with his own lyrics, to apologize to Bernadette while she is working at the Cheesecake Factory. This song was originally recorded by the Four Tops entitled "Bernadette," but clearly Bernadette thinks Howard's is way better. Bernadette even describes it as the most romantic thing that has ever happened to her.

2. Best Children’s Music Album: “Happy Birthday” by Caroline Channing from 2 Broke Girls
(Watch Mom Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c)

Max Black could not have cared less about a couple celebrating a birthday in a diner, but Caroline was happy to show off her chops with a rousing, slightly-out-of-tune, arpeggio version of “Happy Birthday.”

3. Best Rock Performance: “Piano Man” by Derek Morgan, JJ, Dr. Reid, Penelope Garcia and David Rossi from Criminal Minds
(Watch Criminal Minds Wednesdays at 9/8c)

The BAU team rallied around David Rossi when his favorite karaoke bar was on the verge of closing. The group threw a surprise bash at the bar and invited the entire Bureau. The true surprise, however, was signing Rossi up to perform his favorite song, “The Piano Man” by Billy Joel. The group joined him onstage in a rousing rendition of the classic soft rock tune.BAU — "Piano Man" 2.gif

4. Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media: "Who Are You" CSI: Crime Scene Investigation Intro
(Watch CSI Sundays at 10/9c)

After 15 amazing seasons, you can’t hear “Who Are You” without immediately thinking of the iconic intro to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. The lyrics of The Who’s hit song perfectly sync with the show. The CSI team may not know who you are at the beginning, but you better believe that they will know - and catch - you by the end!

5. Best Pop Duo / Group Performance: “If I Didn’t Have You (Bernadette’s Song)” by Howard Wolowitz ft. Entire Cast from The Big Bang Theory
(Watch The Big Bang Theory Thursdays at 8/7c)

Howard Wolowitz writes this beautiful tune for Bernadette for the anniversary of their first date. He invites his friends to perform with him in the hospital, where Bernadette gets quarantined due to careless mistake when handling raccoon virus. Nothing swells the heart like a personalized song — or a dangerous raccoon virus.

6. Best Spoken Word Album: “Reflections of Desire” by Penelope Garcia from Criminal Minds
(Watch Criminal Minds Wednesdays at 9/8c)

Penelope gives a resounding performance onstage about a woman that killed her lover. Her final monologue is a spoken word poem that is not only deep, but causes the audience to truly pause and reflect: "I believe humanity was born from conflict. Maybe that's why in all of us lives a dark side. Some of us embrace it. Some have no choice. The rest of us fight it. In the end, it's as natural as the air we breathe. At some point, all of us are forced to face the truth. Ourselves."

7. Best Comedy Album: "The Elements (Song)" by Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory
(Watch The Big Bang Theory Thursdays at 8/7c)

Everyone knows that jumping on stage is a lot easier after drinking some liquid courage. Well, Sheldon did just that when he broke out in song when receiving a prestigious award from the University. He sang this rousing (and scientifically appropriate) song to his colleagues, which tallies off the entire scale of chemical elements. Originally written by musical humorist and lecturer Tom Lehrer, naturally the tune should be covered by another scientific genius.

8. Best Choral Performance: “You’re a Douche Song” by Walden Schmitt & Ensemble from Two and a Half Men
(Watch Two and a Half Men Thursdays at 9/8c)

Because of Alan’s enthusiasm for Broadway, Walden imagines himself in a musical after he comes clean to Kate about his true identity. The two break out in song after leaving a cafe, but are soon joined by the community around them. This elaborate musical number, including a jazzy-handed flash mob, focuses on Walden’s lowest point of self-reflection: that he was a douche for lying.
