Sara Bareilles, Josh Groban & Neil Patrick Harris Join James Corden For 'Be More Chill' Parody at 2019 Tonys
James Corden put a hilarious spin on the standout song “Michael in the Bathroom” from Broadway’s Be More Chill during the 2019 Tony Awards on Sunday (June 9).
Corden began the parody with a lament about how no one appreciates him as a Tonys host, and that they all probably wish Neil Patrick Harris would come back instead. A few other past Tony Awards hosts then joined him, as Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles emerged from their own bathroom stalls to sing along.
Finally, NPH made a mandatory appearance. The trio asked him if he was hiding in the bathroom because of insecurities, too, and his response was perfect: “Insecurities? No, I just had to use the bathroom.”
Be More Chill is up for best original score at the 2019 Tonys. Check out the full list of nominations here.
