    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.

      His little character break at the end during the standing ovation was so cute! 😊

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

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

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