New rule for late night television: Billy Porter should be on call to simply walk on to every show from now on.
On Wednesday night (Sept. 18), Porter appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and he showed every future guest the proper way to make an entrance. Emerging in a gold lamé cape and a sparkling purple gown, the star luxuriated in the audience's adoration -- and then turned backstage, only to emerge again with a costume change, now wearing a long golden robe with a bouquet of roses, which he passed out to the audience.
The star didn't stop there -- as a flummoxed Corden begged Porter to come sit on the couch and kick off the show, the Pose star jumped on stage with the Reggie Watts-led house band for an energetic tambourine solo. Once he was finished, Porter climbed onto a platform being carried by two shirtless men, where he was carried to the couch, and finally sat down.
