As Sting sang and played "Every Breath You Take" outside the Ed Sullivan theatre in New York, Corden decided to add in some of his own lyrics “to make it a bit ghetto”.

Corden, whose show is based in Los Angeles, paid further tributes to Letterman during his show.

"The idea that we here are able to follow David Letterman's last show is a special moment which is not lost on me or any of us here tonight," he remarked.

"When I got this show I couldn't believe that I would be following David Letterman. I really couldn't. Neither could he. I think it might be the reason he quit."
