    I have no idea why Corden thinks he can sing. Yikes. Yuck. He's got a horrible voice, and is out of tune.

    Neil Patrick Harris can SING!! however, Corden can too.. i think his future is to be on Broadway (he'd probably be great!)

    Doggie rules

  • TheOtherGirlInTheRoom

    Ok but James Corden actually won because the first rule of Broadway riff-offs is that you can't sing a song that you've performed professionally and Neil did two songs he sang professionally

    This is great because they’re both comedians who periodically take the piss when singing but they’re both legit good singers

    I guess I can still have love for you Neil but it’s hard...I had such a crush on you as Doogie and I have no problem with you being gay. I just despised Barney...yeah he was funny but he was a really messed up guy.
