Sexiest Male Vocalist Riff-Off w/ Usher & Luke Evans

While James is lamenting over the lack of soul and sexiness from modern male vocalists, Usher and Luke Evans crash the show to take exception and settle the dispute with a riff-off of songs from Marvin Gaye, K-Ci & Jojo and Foreigner.

I love Usher, but Luke Evans won me over when he sang 'I Want To Know What Love Is' by Foreigner. It is one of my all time favourite songs that I listen to frequently, to this day.

I really enjoyed that performance. Perfect trio and amazing background singers.
Luke Evans! 😍 I Love his acting, he’s so versatile in his roles! I loved his work and the role he played in ‘The Alienist’.
I also absolutely love his singing. His voice is so strong and sexy, a bit like him really!😘❤️
Many People have belittled James for decamping to the USA, but i admire his attempts to bring real humour, even in set pieces like this, to the American market.
Tough job, but worth a try
That man Luke can sing! I wasn't expecting that. James can do his thing too. Shout to Usher the 🐐
I love how James Corden is very comfortable with his masculinity, love him for it.
This is pretty adorable, I have to say. We need more guys like this.

Usher is a legend. HIs voice is just naturally smooth & sensual. I'm just surprised at how good Luke sings. I really wasn't expecting that. The range!!! Even some professional male singers have a hard time singing that song in the original key. WHEWWW!!! Thank you for this awesome moment! :)
