James Corden and Tom Cruise get standing ovation after singing on final Late Late Show

James Corden is certainly going out with a bang on the final ever episode of The Late Late Show.

Viewers have finally been given an insight in the time the British talkshow host managed to get Tom Cruise and himself performing at The Lion King musical.

The pair sang 'Hakuna Matata' in front of a real crowd on Broadway and their performance was so good that it got a standing ovation.

People were absolutely blown away by the footage while watching The Late Late Show.


One person said: "Happened to be in the audience of @TheLionKing when James Corden & Tom Cruise surprised the audience filming for *tonight’s* finale of @latelateshow . It was pretty genius."

Another added: "Imagine paying to see Lion King and James Corden and Tom Cruise walk out on stage."

A third said: "Tom Cruise singing 'Hakuna Matata' with James Corden in front of a real musical audience and then Can You Feel The Love Tonight is why he is one of a kind."


Corden has opened up on why he's leaving the show and America after eight years of making people laugh and sing.

Speaking to Zoe Ball on Radio 2, he said: "It's a strange one, I haven't really felt like this before.

"I remember when we did last episode of Gavin and Stacey, I remember sitting with Ruth jones and crying, but that was done in blocks, we'd film it, go off and then come again.

"But The Late Late Show has been a pretty consistent, it's been 8 years, tomorrow will be 1,200th show - crazy!"


He added: "I feel good about it, I just know in my core its right thing to do for so many personal and professional reasons.

"We're really gonna try and go out with a bang, the last few shows we've done has been brilliant, the atmosphere in the studio is great, we've got some really big guests come down and do stuff, tomorrow's show is gonna be great!

"I wanna cherish it and not spend the whole day crying, I wanna feel the pride and gratitude for it all."
