Hay if you go to the part where he says “No TV wait wait” you have all the adults and and proper people and then there is Sophia Anne carouse (Lydia from beetlejuice) with her PHONE On stage in her right hand. but I know what you are about to say but a lot of the people have their phones to but when she walks on stage she is typing on it on national television

Hurts like a bitch to watch this now- an expertly crafted number about live musical theater and how there’s nothing better. Even with things opening up, it’s gonna be a while before I can catch something on Broadway.

James can definitely sing in Carpool Kareoke, so I expected some bigger notes, but he still did good, writers were impressive. Best Late night talk show hosts currently:
1. Graham Norton
2, James Corden
3. Conan O"Brian
Brit hosts can handle multiple guests at one time, less scripted, im Canadian, unbiased

hadestown deserved more stagetime in that opening tbh, and the lil bit of song sounded more like beetlejuice than hadestown's actual soundtrack

There are a lot of videos hating on celebrities on the internet. James Corden is one of those celebrities people like to hate. When you see this, you can’t hate him. Especially with that last look at the end.

I agree with the decade's Best Musical Tony winners -- except that rollicking original MATILDA should have won over much ado about platform heels KINKY BOOTS, NEWSIES (which was only okay) should have won over chick-flick meets snooze-fest ONCE -- and MEMPHIS (which played like the PG-13 version of HAIRSPRAY ) won simply because it had no competition. None. Still, I loved seeing all the shows. Bring back Broadway!

Ok I need to know.
Who’s the guy at 4:20 (lol) who is to the right of James?! He’s fantastic! Helps he’s hot but still, his dancing is so sharp and pointed
