It is hardly a secret that James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, has boundless love for musicals. The stars of "Mary Poppins Returns" – Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda – as guests on Tuesday, a music number was obvious.
What was not so obvious was how they would jam 22 musicals along with a costume turned into a 12-minute lollapalooza.
Miranda showed the most distance and showed a dog, a tree and even the wind next to Gene Kelly. Blunt had the most wigs change. And Corden was probably Corden.
Blunt and Corden repeated their song "It Takes Two" from "Into the Woods". And Miranda sneaked into "Hamilton," the Broadway musical in which he wrote and played. 1
