The Late Late Show host James Corden showed off his "new toy" on Thursday night, a giant floor-piano like in the movie Big/the depressingly defunct toy store FAO Schwarz. He had Sean Saves the World and Will & Grace star Sean Hayes on to celebrate, and they kicked it off by reliving Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia's "Heart and Soul" duet.
Then they sprung for something, in Corden's words, more "hip, down and groovy with the kids." Twas "Sorry," Justin Bieber's No. 1 song off Purpose. "Do you know Justin Bieber?" Hayes asked as a lead-in, presumably speaking of the guy's music. "Do I know him?" Corden retorted. "He drives me to work almost every day." It's a Carpool Karaoke reference; the two installments with Biebs earned Late Late Show 79 million views in 2015.
Back to "Sorry," though. Corden and Hayes slayed the banger, hands down. Feet down, actually. Too fun to even fault Hayes' breathless delivery. Hopefully Corden keeps this new toy handy.
