'Stranger Things' Cast Join James Corden For Motown Medley

With season 2 of Stranger Things done and dusted, everyone's talking again about what an incredibly talented bunch of actors those kids are.

However, their skills don't stop there. It turns out they're all pretty solid singers, too, as we found out on last night's episode of The Late Late Show, when the crew "reunited" with host and former bandmate James Corden to perform a brilliant medley of Motown hits.

OK, so obviously the young actors weren't really in a band with Corden - well, not until now anyway. Who knows, they might get signed after that performance.

The segment starts out with a montage of the Stranger Things guys on various red carpets, before explaining that prior to getting their big break on the hit Netflix show they had been in a Motown covers band with classmate Corden.

According to Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Corden had been held back and wound up in the same class as the boys at school, where they had formed their group.

"The boys and I, we have so much in common," beams Corden. "We play video games, we love taking naps...most importantly, we all love Motown."

After a successful rehearsal, Wolfhard exclaims: "When people see this performance they're going to lose their shit!" To which Corden responds by ordering him to put some money in the swear jar.

After a bit more background on the band - named The Upside Downs - Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas) reveals that he and his pals got picked up for Stranger Things when a Netflix exec saw them perform. Sadly, Corden didn't get cast.

Ah well, at least we got to see them one last time. But don't read on if you don't like spoilers.

Even if The Upside Downs did manage to strike a record deal, the guys probably couldn't take it up as it looks very likely that they'll be returning to Hawkins for a third, a fourth and maybe even a fifth series.

"They've shut the door on the Mind Flayer, but not only is it still there in the Upside Down, it's very much aware of the kids, and particularly Eleven," Ross Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter.

"It had not encountered her and her powers until that final episode. Now, it knows that she's out there."

Executive producer Shawn Levy was less cryptic about the future of the show, telling Entertainment Weekly: "The truth is we're definitely going four seasons and there's very much the possibility of a fifth.

"Beyond that, it becomes I think very unlikely."
