On a scale from one to ten, we’re giving this Motown medley an Eleven.
James Corden on Wednesday ditched the carpool lane for an in-studio performance with the cast of Stranger Things, forming late-night’s funkiest supergroup The Upside-Downs. The Late Late Show host was joined by TVLine’s Performer of the Week Gaten Matarazzo, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Noah Schnapp on a crowd-pleasing selection of R&B classics, including Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” The Temptations’ “My Girl” and The Four Tops’ “Reach Out I’ll Be There.”
The performance was preceded by a Behind the Music-esque documentary about the “humble beginnings” of The Upside-Downs, and the Netflix audition that nearly tore them apart forever. (You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Corden dressed up to play the part of Hawkins’ most beloved Eggo enthusiast.)
