Proof That James Corden Should Be Zayn Malik's Replacement In One Direction

*drops mic in British accent*

Grace Helbig's new show on E! (aptly named "The Grace Helbig Show") recently featured late night television host James Corden and former N*SYNC member Lance Bass. They played a game called Boy Band-oke in which they were given the challenge to make up a boy band song based on a random title they were given.

James starts us off with "Popcorn on Your Futon" / Via GRxnxG

He started out with a slow rap, realized he need a little more of the boy band factor, and transitioned into a beautiful falsetto ballad.

Then a miscommunication led to the gem "Two Steps in My Heart" / Via

The title on the screen said "Two Step Into My Heart," Grace told him it was "Two Steps Into My Heart," and then Lance created "Two Steps in My Heart." You win some, you lose some.

It got a million times better with "Strawberry Cream Cheese" / Via

The piano, the picture of the bagel, and James' passion. Magic. / Via

Even Lance can't help but feel moved by such a work of art.

Then Lance took it to a sexual place with "OMGGG" / Via

Grace's face says it all. "WE WANTED THIS 15 YEARS AGO, LANCE. NOW IT'S TOO LATE."

And finally, James Corden brought the house DOWN with "Retweet My Heart Bae" / Via

I hope he records this song in full one day because I would definitely buy it. And just look at those dance moves. LOOK AT THEM.

And to finish it off, we went back to a weird but wonderful place with Lance in "Why Didn't You Reply to My Texts 3 Years Ago"

As much as I love Lance, James KILLED IT. He's got the voice, the creativity, the moves, and even the accent to pull One Direction through this dark time. Please James, give the fans what they deserve.
