12/21/2010 3:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shaquille O'Neal conducted the Boston Pops orchestra last night ... and it's hilarious.

The Diesel threw on his finest bow tie ... grabbed the baton ... and led the symphony in "Sleigh Ride" and "We are the Champions."

Dude seems to have a lot in common with Leonard Bernstein ... you know, 'cause they're both Jewish.

sideshow, you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Conductors are extremely important in the preparation and performance of music. I assure you, Shaq had nothing to do with any of the preparation that goes into putting on this concert and, like I already said, popular Christmas music like this is done every year so little performance conducting is needed to keep all the performers together. Non-musical people have no idea what goes into putting a concert together so you should just keep your mouth shut before you show your ignorance to the world. Conductors are like sports coaches. Other people actually play the game but someone has to come up with the strategy and keep everyone on the same page.

I'm glad that my friend Keith Lockhart invited Shaq to be a special guest as a conductor for the Boston Pops at The Boston Smyphony Hall.
Shaq did wonderful job as a guest conductor for The Boston Pops.
