You know that old saying about "he could sing the phone book and make it sound sexy?" Funny story about John Legend: if people still used phone books he most definitely could. But, given that only your grandma still gets giant collections of easily Google-able numbers delivered to her assisted living facility, Legend had to find another way to prove that he can make something super boring feel like hot sauce.
So, he went on The Late Show on Tuesday night (Apr. 25) and in the presence of his old pal Dr. John he took up host Stephen Colbert's challenge to bring the heat to some cold-as-ice topics. Reminiscing about the time they dueted on the Michael Jackson/Paul McCartney song "The Girl is Mine" on his old Comedy Central show, Colbert said Legend can make "anything sound cool and sexy... not matter how mundane." You'll never look at Costco or pill-y sweaters the same way again.
