James Corden is gearing up to host the Tony Awards Sunday, so Wednesday night he ran some of his ideas by Seth Meyers while appearing on Late Night.
Because The Late Late Show host has to keep everyone entertained during commercial breaks, Corden told Meyers he was thinking about getting the audience involved. "I thought, 'Why don't we have a big, sort of karaoke-type sing-along in the Beacon theater?' Because there's all these incredibly talented people in there," shared Corden, who hilariously wore memorabilia promoting his own late-night talk show.
Although he wants everyone to start singing, there's one person in particular whom he'd like to get onstage. "So I might go out and give them some drinks and then see if I can get, like, Barbra Streisand to sing something," Corden continued, adding that his karaoke special (note: not carpool karaoke) would take place only "during the commercial breaks." Unfortunately, commercial breaks don't last that long.
"This is a great idea, but here's my genuine fear—if Barbra Streisand is singing, and then you say, 'No, you have to stop because the show's coming back on, [everyone is] going to be mad at you," Meyers warned.
