James Corden, who is filming The Late Late Show in London this week, made a quick trip over to Paris, France to film a new "Crosswalk the Musical," where, naturally, he and his troupe performed the French musical Les Misérables, and it was amazing.
"What can I say. We've conquered Los Angeles, New York, London. It was only a matter of time before the crosswalk company set foot on French soil, and here we are. Paris, the city of lights, the city of love," said Corden.
The segment started with Corden's regular antics as he put his group of singers and dancers through a rehearsal, where he threw croissants and baguettes at them, to prepare them for what was to come. However, when it came time for the actual performance, croissants and baguettes were the least of their worries.
Corden and his troupe performed a few favorites like "Master of the House" "Do You Hear the People Sing?" "I Dreamed a Dream" and, of course, "One Day More."
Corden has done many "Crosswalk the Musicals" in Los Angeles. In fact, last month he was joined by Will Smith and the stars of Aladdin. However, in a city that is the heart of the entertainment industry, seeing this sort of spectacle leaves most unfazed, or drivers end up dancing along. Paris, on the other hand, was not as thrilled and Corden definitely drew a crowd of spectators who were not entertained.
And it made for great entertainment.
