Watch James Corden Become Taylor Swift's Worst Backup Dancer At Jingle Ball
By Billboard Staff
December 8, 2017
James Corden isn’t shy and he’ll try anything for a laugh, even at his own expense. Witness the spectacle of the British funnyman bursting into Taylor Swift’s practice room backstage at our 2017 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One.
Corden lets it all hang out in an unflattering fishnet outfit as he inserts himself into TayTay’s lineup of dancers. “I’m ready. I’m ready. Use me. I’ll slot right in,” he affirms, offering way too many suggestions for how the performance should go. And he kinda does, as he slots right in as a backing dancer as Swift and Co. rehearse “Look What You Made Me Do.” It’s a real belly laugh.
Elsewhere in the "Take a Break" skit where Corden slips into the General Manager gig at L.A.'s Forum, he gives Niall Horan a terrible massage, confuses Demi Lovato with way too many hand gestures, tries to intimidate Ed Sheeran's bodyguard and generally makes a nuisance of himself backstage (while also making the grossest footlong deli sandwich at catering).
If you missed out on all the action, consider this your holiday gift. You'll be able to relive the night on The CW during a special 90-minute broadcast on December 14th and 25th at 8 p.m. ET/PT -- so put on your Santa hats, grab some gingerbread cookies, and tune in!
