James Corden has hit his highest note yet.
The man synonymous with Carpool Karaoke took on the Big Apple for a Tony-themed segment of the beloved late-night sketch. As he navigated the bustling streets of Times Square with Lin-Manuel Miranda (you know, the Tony-winning creator and star of the sold-out Hamilton), Corden's past and present collided in an all-too-perfect way.
While he may be this year's Tony host and the current musical conductor of the Carpool series, the 37-year-old British native is a 2012 Tony Award winner himself and starred in the silver screen adaptation of the Sondheim musical, Into the Woods. So, who better to sing along with Broadway's most celebrated stars, like six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald, than this guy?
It was a magical moment as he and Miranda performed a rendition of Hamilton's opening act, "Alexander Hamilton." The group, which grew with She Loves Me's Jane Krakowski and Fully Committed's Jesse Tyler Ferguson, continued belting theater's most memorized songs, including Jersey Boys' "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" and the timeless Rent classic, "Seasons of Love."
