After gaining attention in the U.S., thanks to the reality show “The World’s Best,” The TNT Boys, comprised of Keifer Sanchez, Mackie Empuerto, and Francis Concepcion, stopped by the Late Late Show with James Corden for a performance.
James is the host of “The World’s Best” and he fell in love with the Filipino teen group when they appeared on his show.
“I’m really excited because one of my absolute favorite acts from the show is here tonight. They’ve flown all the way in from the Philippines, please welcome the cutest boy band on the planet—The TNT boys are here.”

James chatted with the boys on stage and revealed that the boys were big fans of pop star Ariana Grande. In fact, the three boys were excited to meet James, not because he was a famous talk show host, but because he had met Ariana Grande.
“Ariana Grande is my favorite singer,” Frances said. “I love Ariana Grande’s voice and I love her attitude.”
James had the boys wave hi to Ariana because “sometimes she watches the show” he told them. Little did they know, Ariana was watching backstage, ready to come out and surprise the boys.

So the young trio performed their song “And I Am Telling You,” for the audience. Midway through the song, Ariana came out singing.

“Thank you for having me. I’m obsessed with you guys,” Ariana told the boys at the end. “You guys are so incredible. That was so beautiful.”
“Is this a dream?” Frances asked. Lucky for the TNT boys, it was all real.
