James Corden and The Late Late Show hit another out of the park with this parody of the current White House tenants ‘back when.’
Composer Tim Minchin, Ben Platt (Dear Even Hansen), Abigail Spencer (“Timeless”) and host James Corden perform a parody of Matilda’s “When I Grow Up” playing the roles of Donald Trump, Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon, respectively, wondering what running the world would be like as adults.
James Corden, fresh from the holidays, takes time to honor music icon George Michael, who passed away recently.
In addition to Michael’s music, Corden acknowledges the iconic singer’s 2011 participation in the birth of a comedy skit that what would evolve into Corden’s now uber-popular “Carpool Karaoke” segments.
US Weeklyraves about the “carpool karaoke” episode we’ve all been waiting for The Late Late Show‘s James Corden to deliver:
Bitch, she’s Madonna. New York City drivers, beware: The Material Girl does not like to be cut off when she’s driving. The Queen of Pop joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show on Wednesday, December 7, and the segment began with their black SUV getting cut off by a Manhattan bus. “Let’s drive up next to the bus. I want to give him what’s what,” Madonna, 58, told the host before calling him a p–sy. “You let people get away with bad behavior, they’re gonna do it again.”
First up came “Vogue,” as the pair began singing and striking poses, including a mile-high leg in the air from the singer. Then she began twerking as “Bitch I’m Madonna” played. Then they discussed whether her children liked her new music, and the Grammy winner admitted that while her four kids “are quite rebellious,” she’s “quite square.” “When I go home, I’m Julie Andrews,” she insisted.
Corden, 38, then changed the subject to men and marriage and asked what it was like hanging out with the late Michael Jackson. “You want me to kiss and tell then, don’t you?” she teased before admitting that she had kissed the King of Pop (with tongue), after getting him to loosen up with a glass of chardonnay. “Baby, I’ve been around,” she said.
Lady Gaga, who only recently received her drivers license, is the latest superstar to join in the James Corden’s “The Late Late Show” Carpool Karaoke fun.
Along the way, the way the duo sing through Gaga classics like ”Perfect Illusion”, “Edge of Glory”, “Bad Romance”, “Born This Way”, “Poker Face”, and “Million Reasons”.
The banter includes her upcoming appearance at the Super Bowl, the story behind writing the lyrics of “Bad Romance”, her famous collection of Michael Jackson’s clothing, even a parade of her past costumes including the “meat dress.”
First Lady Michelle Obama brings it as she joins The Late Late Show‘s James Corden for a sassy serving of “carpool karaoke” cruising around the White House last night.
Stevie Wonder’s “Signed Sealed Delivered,” Beyoncé’s”Single Ladies” were on the song list, and even Missy Elliott dropped in for some “This Is For My Girls.”
The First Lady shares that this is only the second time that she’s ridden in the front passenger seat since her husband became president. Apparently, the other time was when daughter Malia was learning to drive in 2014.
Last night on CBS’ The Late Late Show, David Schwimmer and host James Corden threw down in a “Drop The Mic” rap battle, and some hilarious rhymes were dropped.
Corden began with this: “Millennials, let me introduce you to this guy. His name is David – he was famous in ’95. He was on TV then. Now it’s 2016, and he has no Friends.”
Referencing Schwimmer’s new role in The People v. O.J. Simpson against him: “He was a Kardashian on TV, but that was only for pretend. You played Robert, and that was a great combo. But you were so white, you shoulda probably played the Bronco.”
Schwimmer was not intimidated, opening his salvo with this: “We all know as an actor your roles were all the same: the heavy best friend, the humorous side-kick with a belly so big you can’t find your own –.”
Along the way, the former Friends star took aim at Corden’s weight (“They know me in Japan; they know you at In & Out”), and TV pedigree (“You’re late night; I’m prime-time. You’re cola, I’m fine wine.”)
The battle looked like a draw until Rebel Wilson crashed the party with rap attacks for both Corden (“Carpool Karaoke, you think it’s your big thing. But everyone is thinking, ‘Shut up and let Adele sing.'”) and Schwimmer (“David, your career – it’s a huge mistake. It’s like Ross and Rachel; it’s ‘on a break.'”).
