Harry Styles filled in for James Corden as host of The Late Late Show on Tuesday night (Dec. 12), as Corden spent the evening at the hospital with his wife Julia Carey for the birth of their third child. Styles spent the night as host for the first time since his week-long residency in May.
The pop star continued to showcase his talent in front of camera, displaying a comfortable comedic delivery throughout his monologue. He began by congratulating Corden and jokingly vying for his job. “I want you to know that I of course realize that this is James’ show and this is a one-time only thing... unless CBS likes what they see,” he said with a cheeky tone and a wink.
