Doctor Phil Just Performed With Good Charlotte On ‘James Corden’—And It Was Cringey AF ?

Dr. Phi

James Corden is in a tough spot. In a land dominated by late-night juggernauts like Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, you have to be ready to carve out your own niche. One could argue he’s done that already, spearheading the massively popular carpool karaoke and pushing celebrities to perform on the streets with his “Crosswalk the Musical” Broadway performances.

This time, though, Corden may have gone too far in his quest to distinguish himself as the “make celebrities perform in ways you never thought possible” host.

On Thursday’s episode of The Late, Late Show with James Corden, Corden performed in a skit with rock group Good Charlotte. He pretended to be a life coach whose purpose was to ignorantly guide musical acts toward their next great collaboration. Good Charlotte’s future partner? Dr. Phil.

It’s as awkward as it gets for Good Charlotte and, eventually, Corden too. Not Dr. Phil, however, as the video shows the talk show host rocking out without a care in the world.

Viewers had feelings about both the good doctor’s singing skills and performance attire.

Some people found joy in a 68-year-old man wearing Alice Cooper-esque makeup and rocking out on stage.

As 2018 rolls on, we can only hope that Corden hinting at having Judge Judy perform next wasn’t merely a joke.
