        This is a Monumental Achievement and "LIVE" Jezze, this Man has more talent then God Gave Him! BRAVERY/TALENT/BALLS/ARTISTRY/ and a sense of fun that grown-ups and Kids alike can revel in... JC is the Modern CHARLIE CHAPLIN, NO KIDDING... there exists no other example... this performance would take most Actors half a lifetime to REHEARSE Let alone Actually DO... His place in our Hearts is very well Earned... I Love James Corden and I am a Man, am I gay?

              If we're honest, Corden's singing is pretty sad.

                        James Corden had to work damn hard to get where he is today. This was an exceptional opening! Perhaps he could bring that same fun back to the Academy Awards. :)

My son was in a wheelchair since being born with a birth defect. We were told at his birth to treat him as if he had no physical disability. When people with disabilities are included in things this makes it so much easier. Because of people like you this was possible. Thank you
