Ben Platt and James Corden are without doubt our new friendship goals.
On last night’s The Late Late Show, the pair perform a skit called ‘Soundtrack to a Bromance’, where they told the story of a life-long friendship. From their initial meeting to graduating, growing apart to making friends again, it included all the friendship’s highs, lows and everything in between.
Performed in an incredibly impressive one take, the skit incorporated nine different sets and 12 classic songs including the likes of ‘We Are Young’, ‘Hello’, ‘You’re My Best Friend’, and ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’.
Check out Ben and James’ outstanding ‘Soundtrack to a Bromance’ below.
Ben’s appearance on The Late Late Show was in support of the recent release of his highly anticipated debut album, Sing To Me Instead. Described as “an amalgam of a bunch of different relationships in my past, and the very small amount that I’ve learned while grappling with love and romance,” the album is made up of 12 songs, all co-written by Ben, including ‘Bad Habit’, ‘Ease My Mind’ and ‘Grow As We Go’.
During the show, Ben also had the opportunity to showcase material from the album with a performance of the track ‘Older’.
Ben is best known as the Tony® Award-winning lead-actor in the musical Dear Evan Hansen. He has also starred in the original Broadway production of The Book of Mormon in addition to films Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2.
He will also lead and co-produce a new Netflix series called The Politician, which is due to premiere on September 27. Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, the series will also star Jessica Lange, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Zoey Deutch.
Sing To Me Instead is available now.
