Watch James Corden Take Charge of the Backstreet Boys Las Vegas Performance

If the Backstreet Boys ever need an understudy for one of their band-mates, they can pretty much just call late night host James Corden to fill in. The band appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday night as they prepared for one of their Las Vegas residency shows, but Corden had other plans in mind – to completely take over the band!

In a hilarious sketch, Corden shows up a band practice and declares that he wants to sub in for one of the Backstreet Boys at their performance later on that night. While there were no volunteers to sit out, Corden decided a blind vote would be best during which Corden himself was the only one who voted. As a result, Brian Littrell was deemed the chosen one to sit out, though he insisted that Corden couldn’t handle actually being a Backstreet Boy. For Corden, it was a challenge accepted!

Corden then worked hard with the band learning the choreography and all the intricate details of their performance. Corden asked his newly found bandmates when he should break out “the worm” dance move to which Howie Dorough replied softly, “Maybe after the show.”

Corden then joined the band for their pre-show meet and greet before leading a prayer circle filled with Backstreet Boy song puns. He said, “Make us strong. Show us the meaning of being lonely. Quit playing games with our hearts. Give us the call and know that everybody….. I can’t think of any other Backstreet Boys songs. We want it that way. We want it that way!”

Then, it was showtime and Corden totally rocked it! He also may have snuck “the worm” in there.

The sketch was hilarious, but the best part was watching Corden absolutely kill it during the performance at the end. Being a late night talk show host, you forget his many other talents. Check out the awesome sketch with James Corden and the Backstreet Boys below.
