James Corden has done "Soundtrack to a Love Story" and "Soundtrack to Growing Up" with Anna Kendrick, as well as "Soundtrack to a Rom-Com" with Anne Hathaway. Not content to leave his "Soundtrack" series as a trilogy, James staged his most ambitious one yet during The Late Late Show's London finale episode.

James' longtime pal Emily Blunt dropped by the show as a guest and ended up playing Juliet in "Soundtrack to Romeo and Juliet." They sang pop songs, including "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" by Whitney Houston, "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars, "Hello" by Adele, and also "Hello" by Lionel Richie, as a musical backdrop to Shakespeare's most famous play.

Check out the video above to see James and Emily absolutely bring down the house at Westminster's Central Hall, bringing over 2000 fans to their feet.
