James Corden Ruins Titanic

Is nothing sacred? On Monday night’s edition of The Late Late Show with James Corden, he and Ariana Grande performed a medley of classic and modern-day songs that could’ve soundtracked Titanic, in a performance complete with set pieces mimicking scenes from the movie.

At least it wasn’t karaoke in a claustrophobic automobile, but this is obviously blasphemy. The performance (13 songs and nine sets) started with Styx’s “Come Sail Away” and included Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance,” *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” (“There’s no room for me up on that door/Baby bye bye bye,” Corden sang) (Could he have fit on the door or no?), and Nelly’s “Ride Wit Me” (a white people fav). It ended with Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” which Grande sang beautifully and is the only song that should be associated with Titanic.

I never know why you guys accepted James Corden but you did us a great service taking him off our hands and off our TVs and we’ll be forever grateful- the U.K.

P.S. what exactly do you find about him appealing? just curious

Edit: Managing to get through 2 min of that video, my thought is, the only good thing that I think comes from his existence is such incontrovertible proof that a mediocre white man can literally do anything he wants in terms of career/success.
