    HI , not trying to hate but as someone with no musical talent or knowledge whatsoever his singing sounds kind of bad to me ? It sounds more like loud speaking imo...

    Although the sentiment about the live theatre being better is true... for some of us we won't ever get to even get to a city where these shows are on, or never be able to afford tickets, so we'll literally never see any of these amazing shows unless shows start doing more official recordings.

    I can just imagine James Corden doing this entire opening number in his shower every night for a month before the ceremony.

    Always trying to 1 up Neil’s 2012 opening but no one can. Plus he didn’t take a photo with me when I asked him so fuck James.
