Tuesday nights' (Jan. 30) episode of the Late Late Show's fiery battle rap segment "Drop the Mic" featured a heavyweight lyrical bout between to British talents. Host James Corden took on one of Hollywood's biggest English stars Dame Helen Mirren, and the result was simply hilarious.
The event began with Corden strolling into the ring wearing a shiny silver boxing robe, clearly ready for the challenge. Introduced as, "This Dame who doesn't give a damn," Mirren pulled up in her own regal-looking costume, donning a crown and all.
It was the host who would draw first blood as Corden hit the British mega star and star of the new thriller Winchester with an onslaught of verbal fury. "Helen is basically an icon in her craft/ When I heard she wanted to battle me all I could do was laugh/ Back home she's considered the actress you have to fear/ We're in America now, Meryl Streep lives here," rapped Corden.
