Each week night, THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN throws the ultimate late night after party with a mix of celebrity guests, edgy musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide original, improvised music throughout the show. Since Corden took the reigns as host in March 2015, he has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, such as Carpool Karaoke."


  • Leif is the best! Happy to see him get some recognition here. His voice is like medecine for the soul.

  • Leif is the kind of artist you almost have an instinct to keep his music to yourself because his music is so beautiful and intimate and it almost feels like a deeply personal conversation between his music and the listener. But that special quality about his music is what makes him such an amazing artist and I'm so glad that he is finding the success he deserves. I will always value these days that he plays small venues but I hope he keeps getting more and more credit and success because he is the best at what he does.

  • damn, incredible

  • One of the very best ❤️

  • Day 32 of asking James Corden to do a carpool karaoke with Louis Tomlinson since he won’t kidnap 1D and reunite them to make our year better 🙊

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for putting Leif on the show and introducing him to your audience. He is hands down one of my favourite singers and songwriters ever and it’s insane to me that so many people don’t know of his beautiful music. ❤️

  • Absolutely beautiful song

  • This guy is just incredible. Be sure to check out his last two albums "Twin Sollitude" ('17) and "New Ways" ('19). They're a-ma-zing. Not a month goes by in which I don't play either of those. Nothing but love for Leif!

  • Gorgeous performance! Humble, talented, generous...all the world needs, is a little more Leif.

  • Ahh! So cool! I'm so proud of you, Leif! Continue!

  • I love Leif and Gregory, and I love it even more when they perform together. This is great!

  • Leif and Gregory collaborating!!! I think I might die if they tour together!

    • Well then I'm kinda glad you're still alive dude. Because they already did back in 2017 :D

  • He is so great. His music moves me emotionally.

  • Chords anyone?

  • Nice, reminds me of early Ben Howard. Class

  • Thanks to The Late Late Show for giving million of viewers the great opportunity of watching one piece of talent and love; I´m a Leif´s fan and I wish this debut let him be closer to Latin and Hispanic America, hoping he will spread his magnanimus talent in Mexico eventually. And if it was not enough, he is composing with Gregory. What a pleasure for our ears. Thank you again, The Late Late Show, and thank you Leif for showing us that music can take the form of a human.

  • Mannered.

  • love Leif so much!!!! he's an incredible artist 🥰🥰🥰

    • Camis, can we have some words if you won't mind?

    • Yeah Carmis, he's very good

  • I was so lucky to have seen him perform here in Philly...what an amazing and beautiful artist.

    • Philly represent! He's coming back in April 22. I've seen him a few times and was lucky enough to meet him a few times too.

    • @Janelle Cecchini that was incredible, your tears gave title to the song lol

    • I also saw him in Philly. And told him his then untitled song made me cry. Only to find out later it was so fitting as the song title was Hot Tears.

  • ♥️

  • Great song! Love seeing Gregory on TV!

  • Ugh I wish you weren't the host for the Friends Reunion. You were sooo annoying. Less talking more listening dude.

  • Great job Leif ... waiting for you in Montréal (Canada).

  • Atta boys. What a tune. ❤

  • got goosebumps when Gregory Alan Isakov's backing vocals came in.

  • This performance is pure gold ❤️

  • Met this guy when he opened up for Gregory Alan Isakov. One of the most humble yet underrated performers. Was kind enough to write down some of the chords to his songs on some spare napkins. Much love for Leif

  • I love you so much my love my everything my best

  • Gregary Alan Isakov on the guitar ❤️❤️❤️

  • Nice! I saw Leif open for Gregory Alan Isakov a few years back...enjoyed seeing him live.

  • Leif 😍

  • Love how he moves with the music. Fantastic

  • He is amazing I met him and saw him play live in Bristol supporting shakey graves

  • I saw Leif play at the Black Sheep in Wakefield 12-13 years ago. He was incredible back then no different now. Glad to see this. Weird that Wiki says active since 2010. I saw him perform and has a copy of Inland prior to that I’m sure. Second year Uni, that would have been 2008-2009.

    • He sure has come a long way! I must have been at the Blacksheep Inn show. Also shows at Ottawa U and various Ottawa venues.

  • Ohmegoodness! How've I never heard of this sweet music before? What a talent!

  • Day 5 of trying to convince James to tell all the boys to do carpool secretly and take them to his house one at a time after kidnapping them and make them sing night changes and you and I in his living room wearing their merch while live streaming it for us

  • The Video is really good and great

  • This is so good

  • The world is finally catching on to one of the most talented artists. ❤️

  • That suit can probably stand up by itself....Heyzeus James, you make a million bucks plus: Buy a new suit or two!

  • I love this so much 🥲

  • Hallo my friend! it's amazing! It's wonderful video! Thanks for the great news! It's wonderful! Nice upload! And it's great high quality video! I really like it! Thank you for sharing! Have a nice day!

  • Beautiful song.

    • You're not totally wrong. Vollebekk is a Norwegian name, and I believe he said his grandfather was from Norway (during a concert in Oslo a few years back).
