The late-night host and actress gave Lionel Richie and Diana Ross a serious run for their money Tuesday night when they performed their own unique rendition of the 1981 classic, "Endless Love." However, this time, it would be "Endless Glove."
Though the stars sang about a long, red satin glove, the quality of the tune was worthy of a Broadway stage. While the sketch was intended to inspire laughter, the two sounded so good in unison that all we could do was watch in awe. Someone get these two an album together, ASAP.
While the actress is an accomplished Grammy-winning songstress already, she's not so keen on rapping. As Deschanel described to Corden, her "I'm Coming Out" rap in Trolls was not what she had in mind.
"I was like, wait, I'm sorry. I didn't realize that the rap was supposed to be me rapping. I thought that was for somebody else. Of course it wouldn't be me. I'm not a rapper," she recalled. There's a first time for everything, Zooey! To make matters more intimidating, she had to perform the rhyme in front of Justin Timberlake.
"I just want to let you know I'm really nervous about this—not just because I don't know it, but also because I'm really bad at it," Deschanel quipped.
The silver lining? She felt like an official member of Timberlake's '90s squad. "I was like the first female 'NSYNC member."
