Playing party games with celebrities is Jimmy Fallon’s bread and butter, but James Corden doubled down by adding a crucial element to a simple game of musical chairs last night on The Late Late Show: Cher impersonators.
Dressed up as “If I Could Turn Back Time” Cher — sans tush-revealing sheer stocking-pants — host James Corden brought out Megan Mullally, Tig Notaro, Rob Corddry, a contemporary (and masterful) Cher impersonator, and an ’80s Cher impersonator. Sadly, there was no “Take Me Home” Cher complete with bronze Heimdall-esque headgear.
I don’t want to spoil the results for those of you who have yet to press play on the clip, but after watching “Musical Chers,” I have three observations:
1. James Corden is super competitive.
2. Reggie Watts’ “I am Cher! These are chairs!” Cher song is the best Cher-associated jam since “Believe.”
3. Megan Mullally is a super polite lady who believes that it’s appropriate to shake someone’s hand after sitting on their lap.
