It’s Uptown Funk you up, uptown funk you up!
Bruno Mars joined James Corden for a ride on Tuesday’s episode of The Late Late Show, singing tunes from his latest album, 24K Magic, as they discussed fashion, Elvis Presley and poker.
Corden told him that every time they’ve met, Mars “seems like he’s in a great mood,” which he attributes to the performer’s soft silk shirts and impressive hat collection. They tried out a few new looks, with the late-night host finally settling on a gold glittery cap that made him feel like “I’m just a guy who’s constantly waiting for his Tinder date to turn up.”
Mars told Corden about knowing he wanted to be a performer at the age of 4, when he impersonated Elvis onstage, which led to a duet of the legend’s “Jailhouse Rock.” “In this car right now, you’re young Elvis, and I’m fat Elvis when he’s in Vegas,” Corden joked.
The singer gave him some dance tips as well, including “shoulder moves” that took awhile to master, before teaching Corden his best poker face from his card shark days. The duo sang their own versions of “Locked Out of Heaven,” “24K Magic,” “If I Knew,” “Uptown Funk,” “Perm” and “Grenade.”
“I’d catch a grenade for you,” Corden told him, but “only if the pin was in.”
Bruno Mars: “That’s f—ked up.”
