      James Corden is pure talent. Funny, witty, you can see his passion and dedication he put in, in every show especially in this performance. He earned everyone's respect in the audience.

                When did it become so difficult to just enjoy a thing?

                Or at least silently ALLOW other people to enjoy a thing. Who knew?

                            I'm sorry, bit when theseblatw night show hosts start doing musical numbers at these events I find it cringey. Why can't they do a funny monologue? Jeez

                                      It was alright. You people need to go watch some of Neil Patrick Harris or Hugh Jackman's openings.
