Fun Videos From Last Week Starring Sia And JLo

There were a couple of funny videos and tv segments last week that I never got to post, so I’m doing it now.

Let’s start with Sia, who was the latest of James Corden’s carpoolers. Will she show her face? Does she sound great?

No and yes.

Then we have Jennifer Lopez on the Tonight Show. Even though the gorgeous woman is closer to 50 (!!) she did an hilarious impression of your random teenager together with Jimmy Fallon on “Ew!”:

LMAO

Adele And James Corden Drive Around London

“Hello? It’s me…”. We’re very familiar with this intro since Adele’s mega hit Hello came out in December.

It is also the way the latest edition of Carpool Karaoke with James Corden starts! The Late Late Show host has this time been driving around London with none other than Adele.

Did the two of them have fun? Duh, of course!
Is it fun to watch? You betcha!

Best Of 2015

It’s always a bag of mixed emotions for me, the last day of the year.

On one hand it’s sad to say goodbye to the past 12 months of happenings, on the other hand it’s exciting to look foward to the unknown.

But before we do look forward, I am going to look back and list some of my favourite stuff of 2015. Now, I only name the new pieces I’ve actually taken the time to enjoy myself, so the list is obviously not very… complete, in that sense.

Best Film

“The Theory Of Everything”.
Because of Eddie Redmayne’s outstanding performance.

Best TV Show

“Game Of Thrones”.
Because it’s still the most gripping stuff on TV. And I have yet to see the last seasons of Mad Men and Downton Abbey…

Best Late-Night TV Host

James Corden on “The Late Late Show”.
Took over from the great Craig Ferguson this year and put his own spin on the show. Trevor Noah, who replaced Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, is good, but sadly not as charistmatic and brilliant as his predecessor.

Best Song

This was so incredibly hard. Impossible to decide really. So I mention some of the best instead:
“1000 X’s & O’s” (Prince), “Bad Blood” (Taylor Swift), “Hello” (Adele), “Sugar” (Maroon 5 ), “Uptown Funk” (Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars – although it was released 2014 already) and more…

Best Album

“1989” by Taylor Swift.
From end of last year, but is also part of 2015. Made the list because of strong pop songs and hardly any lackluster fillers. I wish I could name Prince’s two new albums instead, but they just contain too many bland tunes.

Best Music Video

“Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift/Joseph Kahn.
Because I can’t resist the overload of girl power.

Best Youtuber

Grav3yardgirl (also known as Bunny).
Kind of a tie between her and Shane Dawson. Love the goofiness, vibrant personality and simple video ideas. Also appreciate Bunny not being afraid to skip makeup.

Best Novel

“The Fortune Hunter” by Daisy Goodwin.
From last year really, but whatever. It’s almost like a better version of a Harlequin novel. Hence, not classic material for future generations, but an enjoyable read for everyone who likes history and romance. And strong female protagonists.

James Corden Carpools With Jason Derulo & Sings With Alanis Morissette

I love me some Carpool Karaoke! Together with Jimmy Kimmel’s Mean Tweets it’s one of my favourite segments of late night television. You both get a fun conversation and some great singing!

Host James Corden has driven around with greats like Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart and Stevie Wonder, now, or rather a week ago, it was time for Jason Derulo. Watch:

What Corden did the other day wasn’t bad either! He invited Alanis Morrisette to redo her 90’s mega hit Ironic. The lyrics are slightly… updated. Alanis and Corden killed it (in a good way)! Watch:
