Because R&B superstar Usher has something to say about that! “Well, I’m alive,” Usher clapped back as he made his way out onto the stage. “Let’s be honest: when people imagine smooth, sensual, sexual—you know—soulful voices, are they going to picture a guy like you? Or do they think of a guy like me? Usher?”
Corden, known for his famed Carpool Karaoke segments, was not about to let that diss stand and quickly challenged Usher to a riff-off!
Backed up by a cappella group The Filharmonic, Corden struck first with a rendition of “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo.
Unimpressed, Usher shot back with a version of “Mercy, Mercy Me” by late soul singer Marvin Gaye.
But what’s a riff-off with only two competitors? Hollywood hunk Luke Evans ran out on stage to throw his hat in the ring. The Beauty and the Beast star hit a home run with his version of “I Want To Know What Love Is” by Foreigner.
In the end, the three equally soulful celebs wrapped up the riff-off with the very fitting track “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green.
