Harry Styles Performs His First ‘Crosswalk Concert’ With James Corden
Raise your hand if you’re a James Corden fan! If your hand is in the air, you probably watch The Late Late Show with James Corden religiously and know all of his Carpool Karaoke segments by heart. You know, the episodes where he picks up a celebrity and they ride around town singing that singer’s songs together. (Our personal favorites are Celine Dion and Paul McCartney).
Corden is also known for a popular segment called Crosswalk the Musical, where he recruits a celebrity of group of people to perform songs in real crosswalks in real time. As in, they stop traffic to sing. It’s pretty wild.
When singer Harry Styles came on the show, Corden convinced him to participate in Crosswalk the Musical, but with a twist: A literal concert, aka the first-ever “Crosswalk Concert.” What better way to promote his new album “Fine Line”?
At first, Styles is completely against the “crazy” idea, but Corden does a pretty good job convincing him otherwise. Soon enough, Styles is handing out flyers to passersby, a bit apprehensively. “Hello, there’s a show today,” he’d say. “Don’t know why.”
Then, before we know it, Styles is literally in the middle of the crosswalk of Beverly Boulevard performing a free live concert for the lucky cars in front of him! He sings the songs “Kiwi,” “Lights Up,” “Watermelon Sugar” and “Sign of the Times.” Styles is still a bit skeptical between each song, but he ends up performing the concert of a lifetime.
Corden was right—this was more insane than the Beatles walking Abby Road! (But we think it’s pretty awesome). The costume changes and dance moves are seriously ones to be remembered. We have no idea how they even pulled it off!
