Bye, Dave! With David Letterman’s last show wrapped, the Late Late Show’s James Corden and Sting filmed a funny duet to send Letterman off. Prepare yourself — there’s rapping!
David Letterman, 68, ended his iconic role as the host of The Late Show on May 20th; soon after, James Corden, 36, and Sting, 63, took to the streets in front of Letterman’s studio to sing a uh, well, slightly awkward duet in his honor. You really need to see this!
James Corden & Sting David Letterman Tribute: Say Goodbye In Song
While Letterman’s show may be over, we have no doubt his career is far from over. We are loving all the support pour out during his final show. The hilarious duet begins with their rendition of “Every Breath You Take”, mixed in with James rapping. I mean, if the Late Late Show doesn’t work out for James, I guess he may have a backup career lined up.
With Sting on the guitar, James decided to embrace his inner rapper. While Sting does what he does best (omg, that voice), the singer doesn’t appreciate the fact James wants to “make it a bit more ghetto”. So, things get a bit awkward, but you can watch it for yourself and decide!
During the Late Late Show, James also opened up about how David’s show made him less lonely, and championed his longtime career. Ahhh!
“He made me feel like he was talking just to me,” Corden said. “It’s been an honor following you, and we will miss you.”
The final show ended in a BIG way, with a room packed with major A-List celebs! During the Top 10 Things I’ve Always Wanted To Say To Dave segment, a variety of celebrities chimed in! Barbara Walters stated, “Did you know that you wear the same cologne as Muammar Gaddafi?” While Tina Fey hilariously said, “Thanks for finally proving men can be funny.”
It wasn’t ALL humor for the send off, we saw Jimmy Kimmell get quite emotional, even tearing up about his relationship with David!
“I learned almost nothing in college, I really didn’t,” Jimmy revealed. “But watching Late Night, I learned how to do everything from Dave. The reason I have this show, is because the executives at ABC saw me when I was a guest on Dave’s show and then hired me on this show. I want to thank Dave and his writers and producers. Tomorrow night is Letterman’s farewell show, and I want you to watch that show.”
