Adam Lambert Serenades James Corden With Queen Song On ‘Late Late Show’ (VIDEO)
Adam Lambert sang a tribute song to James Corden on Thursday’s “Late Late Show” in honor of the talk show’s 50th episode. Lambert covered the Queen song “We Are The Champions,” but changed its lyrics to relate to Corden. Watch the video below!
The running gag of the night had Corden celebrating the 50th episode of his months-old talk show as if it were the 50th year anniversary of the program. Throughout, he acted maudlin, wore a tuxedo for the “festivities,” and even aired an In Memoriam for those who had passed since the show’s debut in late March.
Toward the middle of the show, Lambert came on stage to serenade the host on his “big night,” presenting Corden with his very own version of Queen’s “We Are the Champions,” titled “He is James Corden.” The song featured lyrics such as “He is James Corden, my friends, and he’ll host ‘Late Late Show’ ’til the end.” As Lambert sang, a montage of various guests and bits from the past 50 shows played on screen. Finally, Corden joined Lambert on stage for an encore performance, helping to pay tribute to himself.
Of course, it’s not surprising Lambert sang a Queen song, since he toured last year with the band’s surviving members, taking over as lead vocalist for the late Freddie Mercury. As Gossip Cop reported, Lambert was not a fan of Kanye West’s cover last month of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” at the Glastonbury Festival in England. The former “American Idol” contestant slammed West’s performance on Twitter.
