James Corden And Neil Patrick Harris Sang Show Tunes Competetively, And It Was Perfect
They cover everything from Guys and Dolls to Hamilton, and it's all so wonderful.
Neil Patrick Harris and James Corden, both Broadway veterans, had a Broadway riff-off on The Late Late Show, and it was every theatre nerd's dream come true.
It all started when Neil Patrick Harris crashed James Corden's opening monologue.
Apparently, NPH had to settle a score.
He reminded James that he's not the only TV star who is qualified to host The Tony Awards.
And James quickly reminded him that he, too, is a Tony winner.
But Neil still had to one-up him.
So, naturally James laid out a challenge.
Backed up by a capella group The Filharmonic, James got things started with a classic from Guys and Dolls.
And NPH followed that right up with the iconic "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from Gypsy.
In the second round, the men show off their serious vocal skills. First up, NPH kills with Sondheim's "Being Alive," which is just gorgeous.
And James brought down the house with a beautifully sustained high note at the end of "On My Own" from Lés Miserables.
Then, it was time to bring the sex. James did just that with this hot little number from Chicago.
But of course, Neil just crushed everything with "Sugar Daddy" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
Finally, the two gentlemen joined forces to give us the greatest gift — a duet of "My Shot" from Hamilton.
Seriously, just watch the whole video and bask in the glorious voices of these two treasures. You won't be sorry.
