5 Seconds of Summer were the latest pop act to take over The Late Late Show with James Corden. On Monday night (Nov. 30), Luke Hemmings, Ashton Irwin, Calum Hood and Michael Clifford sat down with the always-jovial James Corden to promote their new album Sounds Good Feels Good as well as their debut documentary. Between their chat, however, we also got a look into the roots of 5SOS and got a rousing performance of the SGFG single "Hey, Everybody!"
First, fans got an unprecedented look at the world of 5 Seconds of Summer before they hit it big with "She Looks So Perfect" and had five members in their band: Calum, Ashton, Luke, Michael and... James (who may or may not have been friends with the 5SOS boys' dads). Though Corden saw himself as the frontman of 5 Seconds of Summer, the truth was the he didn't quite gel with the rest of the band, and after having troubles with being "drunk on power and alcohol," he was asked to leave the group. Of course, he didn't go without a fight or a pig.
For their sit down interview, 5 Seconds of Summer and Corden mostly talked about the band's new concert documentary, How Did We End Up Here?, which showed Clifford's fiery pyrotechnics injury. Clifford was actually the victim of a few stage incidents; the band also discussed when he simply walked right off the stage when he spotted Rita Ora in the crowd.
And, what would a 5 Seconds of Summer appearance be without a performance? Nothing, of course, and the band delivered fully with a rousing rendition of its new single, "Hey, Everybody!" And this time, no one fell off the stage.
