    "Hallelujah"? Why on earth should Europeans be expected to pronounce this Jewish term correctly? Has nothing to do with our culture.

    for my ego, it's fun and loosening up to make fun of this song. i have found it one of those songs that is maddening. it's super popular, it speaks some sort of truth that i resent or resist, and feel stupid for resisting it. so making it less serious for once is actually rather ironically healing for me :) Thanks you guys

    You think this is funny, you should hear people (even locals) try to pronounce the street name "Junipero" in my home town. I have heard it mispronounced five different ways. (The street is named after Father Junipero Serra.) Go ahead, give it a try. (Correctly said: Who-nip-er-oh.)

    I can honestly say I liked Kristen Wiig before she was even big. Way back in a 2008 movie called Ghost Town. She had a small part as a Dr. and she was amazing.

    This is disgusting. Making fun of a word that is so holy to many people. Even if you don't have the same religion, have some respect and learn to have boundaries in what you say.

    Stop interrupting the song you fekking moron, and just let Kristen sing, and not have you making an arse out of yourself in attempts to be funny.

  • Trillock 1945
    Trillock 1945 17 days ago

    Corden is a moron, and no wonder there are not many YT videos on The Late Show...........but loads with Craig Ferguson running it, who is all the things corden is not, i.e. entertaining, funny and a much nicer personality too.

  • Trillock 1945
    Trillock 1945 17 days ago

    Kristen is gorgeous and can sing, corden is just fat unfunny freak who can't sing.
    Why keep interrupting the song with so called comedy, bloody idiot, he is just a moron, and America can keep him...

    If they were trying to bring about healing and reconciliation (or at least pretending they were), they'd have done much better to end on "I did my best, it wasn't much . . . " rather than "Well maybe there's a god above . . . "

    Kristen Wiig is an an astonishing and subtle revelation of comedy. She is herself and just sneaks in and finds that spot where no one resides and then takes you there with her. A place that didn't exist before, her....

    This whole skit represents how I feel when I try to tell people the right way to pronounce anything. Many people have this issue. They stick with the original mispronunciation even though you just told them how to say it right. GROAN!!!!!!!
