James Corden's Huge GRAMMYs Opening Doesn't Go As Planned

He saves it with a ridiculously great rap song, though.

It's a dream come true for James Corden to host The GRAMMY Awards. His opening number nearly turned into a nightmare, though. The elevator bringing him on stage got stuck and only brought him halfway up. After having to climb the rest of the way, he then fell down the stairs and lost a shoe. Meanwhile, his backup dancers were already into their full routine.

James attempted to save the number by tap-dancing with only one shoe, but ultimately had to shut the whole thing down. Luckily, the host is also an amazing rapper, because he saved the day by recapping a huge year in music with an epic rap covering everything from Beyoncé and Drake to Sturgill Simpson.
