Kristin Chenoweth, Beth Behrs, & Julie Chen Compete for Duets with James Corden - Watch Now!

Kristin Chenoweth gets dipped by James Corden while performing a duet on The Late Late Show on Wednesday (October 5) in Los Angeles.

The Emmy and Tony-winning actress was introduced third that evening, following Big Brother‘s Julie Chen and 2 Broke GirlsBeth Behrs, and she told James that she was going to go home as she didn’t feel special.

Last time when Kristin was on the show, the two stars sang a duet together, so James started singing “Endless Love” and she joined him on stage to finish the song.

After the song was over, Beth appeared and was jealous that she didn’t get to sing with James, so he told her she was the one he wanted and broke into Grease‘s “You’re the One That I Want.”

Julie later showed up and didn’t want to sing, but she started rapping “Move Bitch (Get Out the Way).” Watch below!
