James Corden filling as Taylor Swift's backing dancer is weirdly mesmerising

On The Late Late Show, James Corden stepped in as the General Manager for The Forum during the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball concert, where he got to oversee all of the behind-the-scenes operations for his popular "Take a Break" segment.

If the whole latest-night TV host thing doesn't work out for James Corden, here's a fun bit of trivia: he's actually got the skills and fashion sense to make a very serviceable Taylor Swift backup dancer, as seen during last night's The Late Late Show.

It's been a truly odd year for well, pretty much everything, but James Corden joining Taylor Swift's ranks as a substitute backing dancer may well take the biscuit.

When Corden paused to visit the toilet, Swift urged her dancers: "Save yourselves".

He also paid visits to Liam Payne, Sam Smith and Demi Lovato. But rather than find a replacement, Corden became one himself - dressing up in tight-fitting trousers, a crop-top, and fishnet shirt in an effort to help Swift and her team perform the hit song "Look What You Made Me Do".

Turning up to last-minute rehearsals in an, er, fetching fishnet shirt and black jumper combo, Corden implored Swift to "use me" in her routine for Look What You Made Me Do. "I thought we were naming our favorite James".
