Idina Menzel and James Corden had the time of their lives on Thursday’s “The Late Late Show.” The pair broke out into a fantastic performance of “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from the movie Dirty Dancing. See the video below.

“Idina, have you had a good night?” asked Corden. Menzel responded, “I’ve had the best time. Have you had a good night?” Corden then began singing the first few lines of the classic 1987 song. Menzel joined him, and the two made their way towards the center of the stage to perform their Dirty Dancing number. Menzel and Corden even did a few dance moves, but left out that famous lift Patrick Swayze did with Jennifer Grey in the movie. Corden’s other guest, stand-up comic Kumail Nanjiani, watched the faux impromptu performance from his seat with a look of complete confusion.

Earlier, while being interviewed by Corden, Menzel revealed to the talk show host that she accidentally spat on President Obama and his wife while performing Wicked‘s “Defying Gravity” at the White House. “I was literally spitting on the President, the First Lady and their two kids,” said the Frozen star, adding, “When you have to really sing the high notes it comes out and you can’t help it. It was humiliating.” Watch the video below of Menzel and Corden’s Dirty Dancing routine, and tell us what you think.
