Fans of The Late Late Show with James Corden might have already been familiar with one of his staple segments Crosswalk the Musical, where he invites artists to dress up and perform songs as commuters sit at a red light. So what better opportunity to promo his new musical comedy than to perform with his castmates of the Amazon Prime remake? James was joined by the likes of Camila Cabello, Billy Porter, and Idina Menzel as they dazzled their idling crowd.

Commuters who were lucky enough to get a front-row show shared some clips on social media, giving us a chance to experience it for ourselves. And the surprising appearance included James's interesting dance moves. The Carpool Karaoke host hit the sunny streets of Los Angeles in a mouse suit and was caught thrusting his hips as the cast sang along to the iconic pop track Let's Get Loud.

The unsuspecting driver who got the full show posted the clip on Twitter, which has been shared over 3,000 times and has racked up 5,500 likes in just a couple of days. "Oh wow," the shocked commuter commented on the comedian's moves. Oh wow indeed. The full performance was recorded for The Late Late Show with James Corden's official YouTube page and included some hilarious scenes in between the musical numbers. "Oh my god, I can't believe it," Camila gushed in after one of the songs. "That was such a rush... And not dangerous at all! I wasn't scared," she added sarcastically.

The 24-year-old singer also added a not-so-subtle dig at her co-star, joking about the state of late-night television in 2021. "It's bittersweet because this is what late-night TV has become now," Cabello teased. "I kind of miss the days of Steve Allen, Tom Snyder, Dick Cavett... That was the golden era for me."
