Ariana Grande Is The Rose To James Corden's Jack In A Musical Version Of 'Titanic'

They did it all in one take.

Who has time to watch all three hours of Titanic when you have James Corden and Ariana Grande to act it out in five minutes on The Late Late Show? And to make it even better, the pair turned it into a jukebox musical featuring 13 pop songs — all performed in one continuous take.


You may remember Corden's previous segments "Soundtrack to a Love Story," "Soundtrack to a Rom Com," and "Soundtrack to Romeo and Juliet," featuring Anna Kendrick, Anne Hathaway, and Emily Blunt, respectively. "Soundtrack to Titanic" takes the same approach, and it might just be our favorite version yet.

Grande is the Rose to Corden's Jack, as the pair switch from scene to scene to perform songs such as Lady Gaga's "Just Dance," One Direction's "Steal My Girl," and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You." Corden also manages to change the lyrics to NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye" to apply to the infamous debate over whether that raft could hold two people.

Of course, the segment wouldn't be complete without Grande showing off her impression skills with a rendition of "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion. Corden even joins her to make it a perfect duet. Needless to say, the crowd loved it.
