James Corden breaks down in tears in final Late Late Show

James Corden brings his Late Late Show to an end

James Corden ended his eight-year US TV stint with an emotional monologue addressing “divisions” in America.

The Gavin and Stacey and talk show star burst into tears after wrapping up his The Late Late Show tenure on Thursday night.

For his final show, James Corden welcomed special guests Will Ferrell and Harry Styles to the studio and even received a surprise message from President Joe Biden.

After an emotional Carpool Karaoke session with Adele and getting his desk destroyed by the Anchorman star, it was time to say goodbye with one last speech to his millions of viewers.

“We started with Obama then Trump then a global pandemic,” he began.

“I’ve watched America change a lot over these past few years, I’ve watched divisions grow, I felt a sense of negativity.

“I guess all I really want to say, I implore you to remember what America signifies to the rest of the world. My entire life, it’s always been a place of optimism and joy.”

Corden first took over The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson in 2015 and moved his family to Los Angeles to host the CBS staple.

He’s now moving back to the UK but showed appreciation to the country where his home has been for nearly a decade.

“Sure, it has flaws,” he continued. “Show me a country that doesn’t … every single one of us is a work of progress.

“Just because someone disagrees with you, it doesn’t make them bad or evil. There are so many people who are trying to stoke those differences.

“We have to try to the best we can to look for the light, look for the joy. It’s out there.

“That’s all this show has ever been about. Thank you for letting me do this. Thank you for letting me into your home every night.”

Corden finished the night by performing an emotional song on the piano summarising his time hosting the series.

He burst into tears at the end of the performance and received a standing ovation from the audience when he left the studio.

The host also received touching tributes from his two special guests.

Brit pop star Styles said: “Selfishly, I’m very happy that you’re coming home, I love you so much.”

And Ferrell said: “James … I mean you’ve done such an amazing job coming into the late night space which is incredibly crowded, incredibly competitive.

“Coming to America from – let’s face it a s**thole country,” he joked, before adding: “But seriously, bravo.”

The Late Late Show is available on CBS in the USA.
