Ellen Degeneres and James Corden Duel In Guessing Song Lyrics

Diana Rolland / April 11, 2017

It was a lot of fun on The Ellen Show, when host, Ellen Degeneres had special guests Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who is best known for his role as Mitchell on Modern Family, and the host of the Late Late Show, James Corden, join the show.


In this segment, Ferguson played a game show host, and the contestants were the two hosts, Degeneres and Corden who had to compete head to head in being able to properly finish the rest of the song lyrics.



Before the game even got going, Jesse Tyler Ferguson struggled through explaining the game, and Ellen and James made sure the gameshow host knew about it, roasting and teasing the actor.


Jesse wasn’t the only one that got roasted however. The producer of The Ellen Show had to verify the score, saying that James Corden was losing in the game, and James didn’t hold back, jokingly scolding the producer.


The two hosts gave us a good duel, but due to time, we never got a final winner, as they ended in a tie. Both hosts also shared something in common as James Corden was the host of this year’s Grammy Awards, and Ellen was the host of the Grammy Awards back in 1996 and 1997.



This was also not the first time James Corden and Jesse Tyler Ferguson hung out together, as they were in a carpool karaoke last year singing many Broadway tunes.
