WATCH: James Corden takes on Neil Patrick Harris in a Broadway riff-off


Both have hosted the Tony Awards, performed on the Tony Awards – hell, both have won Tony Awards. But last night, on The Late Late Show, host James Corden and Neil Patrick Harris went toe-to-toe in a Broadway-inspired sing-off.

Tackling hits from shows like Guys and Dolls, Chicago, Hedwig and the Angry Inch (for which Patrick Harris garnered his award) and current Broadway super-hit Hamilton, the pair were accompanied by a cappella group The Filharmoni and had every theatre geek in the land FREAKING out.

Patrick Harris, who will next to be seen in Netflix’s adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events, won Best Lead Actor in a Musical at the 2014 awards, whilst Corden won Best Lead Actor in a Play for One Man, Two Guvnors two years prior.
