Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

James Cor­den was “ter­ri­fied” singing in front of Justin Tim­ber­lake. The 38-yearold talk show host voices Big­gie in the an­i­mated ad­ven­ture and though he en­joyed lay­ing down vo­cals for the sound­track, he was wary about get­ting in the stu­dio in front of the ‘Can’t Stop the him, but I think I got away with it. “I think it was fun. I cer­tainly loved it.” James of­ten shows off his singing tal­ents on the ‘Car­pool Karaoke’ seg­ment of his ‘Late Late Show’, but he in­sists that’s dif­fer­ent to making a record.
