James Corden is known for getting his guests to participate in hilarious acts on his show, The Late Late Show with James Corden. And Thursday night (March 14) was no different. The talk show host enlisted the help of Kate Beckinsale and Milo Ventimiglia to act out the lyrics to Bruno Mars songs.
“What?” You ask yourself. Well, Milo, Kate and James portrayed lovers in a soap opera. The actors could only speak the lyrics of Bruno Mars songs such as “24K Magic, “Uptown Funk,” “Locked Out of Heaven” and more.
The sketch was called “The Bold and the Lyrical,” written by Bruno Mars and the trio went to town creating the scene filled with his lyrics.
The premise of the story is that Kate is in a relationship with Milo, who is a Billionaire (according to Bruno lyrics) and she was having and affair with James Corden. Milo returns home early and Kate is forced to hide James, who is eventually uncovered.
“What was that sound?,” Milo said
“Turn around and just tease me baby,” Kate responded.
‘You had your eyes wide open. Why were they open?,” Milo said.
“Because your sex takes me to paradise,” Kate said.
The lyrics just keep coming. However, at one point, Milo throws in a Lady Gaga lyric from the song “Shallow,” because he says the song has been stuck in his head since the Oscars. After an apology, they carry on. The witty sketch garners laughter from the audience throughout and now doubt a few laughs from the actors themselves.
