Rolling Stone reviews:
Cher joined James Corden Thursday to perform “I Got You, Bae,” a modernized version of Sonny & Cher’s 1965 hit “I Got You Babe,” on The Late Late Show. “I’m going to do one of my favorite songs tonight,” the singer told the crowd. “But I want to do it in a different way.”
Corden walked out onstage dressed, awkwardly, as Cher. Tossing around a black wig, he noted that Cher playing herself was “a bit obvious.” The two Chers filled their goofy duet with lyrics about love in 2016, exploring topics like “Netflix and chill,” deleting Internet porn history and making a relationship “Facebook offish.”
“They say we’re young and we don’t know/ How to find love without using your phone,” Cher crooned. “I don’t know if all that’s true/ ‘Cause you swiped me and, baby, I swiped you,” Corden replied.
Pet Shop Boys were to have also been on last night’s show, but Neil Tennant is ill.
