Late Night Host Joins Idina Menzel For 'Dirty Dancing' Performance That Has Crowd Going Wild

When you're a popular TV host, talking to celebrity guests all night long is one of the perks of the job. But, after a while it must get pretty boring listening to A-listers always yap about themselves. So, at the end of one of his show's, British funnyman James Corden of The Late Late Show decided that it was time to shut them up and shine the spotlight on himself!
James had been keeping all his thoughts about his beautiful guest, singer Idina Menzel, all to himself. But, he couldn't hold it in any longer and just had to let it all out! Instead of alienating his audience, the crowd went wild as soon as the lights lowered and a familiar tune spread through the air... Someone was about to have the time of their lives!
James was a gentleman and proper host first and foremost, and to his credit he did politely ask Idina if she enjoyed her visit with him. But, before she barely had a chance to express her gratitude for being invited to appear on his show, James' expression changed and a glazed look suddenly came over his eyes.
The poor man just couldn't hold back his emotions, and he needed to tell Idina exactly how he felt. As soon as the theme song to Dirty Dancing started to play in the background, the crowd erupted in cheers! James, it seems, has had the time of his life with the gorgeous songstress.
It was hard for him to explain with words just how much he really loved spending time with her, so James sang it to her instead. After he reached out a hand to caress her hair, Idina grabbed a microphone and also belted out the lyrics to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life."
When troupe of backup dancers suddenly appeared out of nowhere, James' other guest, actor Kumail Nanjian from the hit series Silicon Valley, looked hilariously bewildered by all the commotion! The fun continued to escalate after a blue disco ball started blinking blue lights all over the stage.
Although Idina is famously known for her Broadway voice and her role as Elsa in Disney's Frozen, James actually gives her vocal cords a run for the money in this fabulous Dirty Dancing inspired musical number.
It looks like they both had the time of their lives, and by the time it was all over, both James and Idina were out of breath. By the time they plopped back down into their comfy chairs, poor Kumail's expression said that he would've loved to have been invited to have the time of his life, too.
