Soulful, free fun! James Corden treated his Late Late Show viewers to another display of his vocal stylings on Monday night with the help of GRAMMY winner Jennifer Hudson.

“Ladies and gentlemen, if there’s one thing I love, I love singing well-known songs. And if there’s one thing CBS doesn’t love, it’s me spending money on the rights to those songs,” Corden told his audience. “So tonight, we’re presenting a medley of some of the hottest public domain songs around.”

Hudson then took the stage, declaring, “I love singing public domain songs! I like to take a bath, light some candles, and skip to my Lou.”

They pair their broke into a soulful rendition of “Skip to My Lou.” They also tackled “London Bridge Is Falling Down” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

This isn’t the first time Corden has tried out this sketch. He has also performed public domain songs with Office alum Craig Robinson and recording artist Josh Groban. It’s also not the first time Corden and Hudson have teamed up.
