James Corden did a delightful job hosting the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. But it seems the high of mingling with the likes of Beyoncé, Katy Perry and Adele got to his head a bit, because on Monday night’s (Feb. 13) The Late Late Show he cockily challenged guest Ice Cube to a bit of one-on-one basketball.
