elateThe Late Late Show host James Corden and popstar Ariana Grande wrapped up California's lockdown by showcasing a spoof of "Good Morning Baltimore." As reported by Rolling Stone, included in the show are some of the Hairspray alumni themselves.
Corden and Ariana Sing a Hilarious Spoof of Lockdown Freedom
The two stars are spotted singing "No Lockdowns Anymore" enthusiastically on the busy streets of Los Angeles. The show host sings a line saying "turning off Zoom after 15 long months stuck on mute" which hilariously portrays what most students who have online classes and employees who work from home have gone through pretty much the whole lockdown.
After a while, guest Ariana Grande comes along and plays the part of Penny Pingleton in NBC's "Hairspray Live!". The popstar sings and suggests to Cordon, "Let's hit the club and get drunk and get matching tattoos."
Almost everyone would agree that this is the standard get-me-right-into-the-bar-now attitude after the suspension of lockdowns. Besides, who wouldn't hit the bar after a life-changing global pandemic and not get drunk and not get matching tattoos, right? Who wouldn't? Ariana is right on that one!
In a Twitter update, the singer uploads four photos with three featuring her on a yellow bubbly dress and signature half-pony hair and one with James Corden while they're singing on the streets.
The singer captioned the post by saying, "fun with my friend @jkcorden ! tune in tonight @latelateshow 12:37 am on CBS for our skit. #LateLateShow p.s. there may even be a very special, heart attack provoking cameo made by a Tony Award winning, friend of mine !
