Harris & Corden: A Delightful B’way Duet

While the rest of late-night television was freaking out over Donald Trump’s feud with Meryl Streep, James Corden and his guest Neil Patrick Harris went in a different direction. Interrupting Corden mid-show, Harris accused him of blowing up his spot by “acting like you’re the only TV star who can sing Broadway show tunes.” Joined by the LA-based Filharmonic a cappella group, the two Tony Award winners faced off in an epic battle that began old school with a song from “Guys and Dolls” and moved into a ballad from “Les Miserables” before transitioning to some sexy dancing from “Chicago.”

The “riff-off” ended where we all knew it would: with the two actors joining forces for a tour-de-force performance of “My Shot” from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton. More than anything else, the whole thing just proved how much better either Corden or Harris would have been at hosting the Golden Globes than Jimmy Fallon.
