Things are going pretty well for Idina Menzel. In fact, when she stopped by ‘The Late Late Show,’ you could say she was having the time of her life.
You can’t have Idina Menzel on your talk show and not require her to belt out a tune, right? Frozen‘s Elsa dropped by The Late Late Show on April 30, and the newly blonde beauty got, well, dirty. Along with host James Corden (who you may not know is also an amazing singer), the two Tony Award winners expressed their feelings for one another the only way they could: Singing Dirty Dancing‘s “I’ve Had The Time of My Life.” Watch the musical antics now to immediately add some 80s centric joy to your day!
James Corden & Idina Menzel Do ‘Dirty Dancing’
While promoting her upcoming world tour, the golden throated beltress paid her fellow thespian James Corden a visit on his new talk show and, obviously, they had a great time. In fact, when they were wrapping up, James asked Idina just how great a time she had.
In true musical theater form, Idina and James allowed their emotions to manifest with a big song and dance. Duh. “I’ve had the best time, thank you” Idina told James. “Have you had a good night?”
“I’ve really enjoyed it,” James responded. “In many ways you could say that…” And guess where we go from there.
James Corden Channels John Travolta
The duet was about as joyful and silly as you could expect– that is until James pulled a bit of a John Travolta.
Getting to the sensual line, “now with passion in our eyes,” James put a singular hand to Idina’s cheek, and there’s no way it didn’t give the diva flashbacks to the traumatic chin groping which Travolta subjected her to at the 2015 Oscars. Come on, James, hasn’t Idina been through enough?
What do you think of Idina and James’ duet? Did James pull a Travolta?
