James Corden & Ellen "Finish The Lyrics" to Taylor Swift, Rihanna & Justin Bieber Songs

Posted on February 08, 2017

In anticipation of James Corden hosting the GRAMMYs this Sunday, (Feb. 12) Ellen Degeneres invited James onto her show to play a game of Finish The Lyric. The game works like this: A section of a popular song is played for both James and Ellen, but when the song cuts, whoever buzzes in first gets the chance to recite the rest of the lyrics to that song. If you guess the correct lyrics, you get a point!

What makes this so hilarious is the fact that we all think we know every word to all these pop songs when we’re singing along to them, but in reality we’re mainly just mumbling along, singing a few words that stick out.

This is exactly what happens when James and Ellen go head to head, trying to finish the lyrics to songs from Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and Drake! The one song they both knew word for word happened to be Justin Bieber‘s “What Do You Mean.” But who doesn’t know every word to that one 😉

Watch it all go down below and see if you can finish the lyrics before they do!

Wasn’t that perfect?! LOL

Still can’t believe they both didn’t remember Drake’s line from “Hotline Bling” – ‘You Used To Call Me On My Cellphone’

Let us know how you did in the comments.
