Ariana Grande and James Corden’s Celebrate “Titanic” With Incredible, Hilarious Musical Mashup


It’s pretty much a fact – James Corden’s brain just works differently from most people. Indeed, the late night talk show host can think up skits and routines and sing-alongs that no one ever has thought of, and pull them off with an ease seldom seen these days.

Heck, he was the one that thought up “Carpool Karaoke.”

So it comes as no surprise that Corden did it again on Monday (Aug. 13) when he teamed up with music star Ariana Grande for a one-take sing-along inspired by the movie “Titanic.” The skit included Corden and Grande singing everything from hits from Hall & Oates and Foo Fighters that seamlessly fit within the much-loved “Titanic” storyline.

The skit concluded with Grande performing an impressive version of Celine Dion’s massive hit “My Heart Will Go On.” And yes, it does one’s heart good to see Grande in such a good place, as she continues to heal emotionally from the May 2017 shootings that took place at a concert she was doing in Manchester, England.

“I hate… yeah… admitting it but it very much is,” she says in a new interview. “That’s what everyone was telling me. It’s hard to talk about because so many people have suffered such severe, tremendous loss. But, yeah, it’s a real thing. I know those families and my fans, and everyone there experienced a tremendous amount of it as well. Time is the biggest thing. I feel like I shouldn’t even be talking about my own experience — like I shouldn’t even say anything. I don’t think I’ll ever know how to talk about it and not cry.”
