Jennifer Hudson & James Corden Sing Public Domain Songs (VIDEO)


While in Los Angeles yesterday to tape a performance for Thursday’s American Idol series finale, Jennifer Hudson dropped by the CBS Late Late Show with James Corden to sing a medley of Public Domain songs.

You know them. You love them (or maybe not). CBS did not have to pay for them! Check out a jazzy “Skip to My Lou,” a hip hop version of “Old MacDonald” a tragic version of “London Bridge.” James nearly has a heart attack when Jennifer begins the theme to “Frozen.” THAT’S A VERY EXPENSIVE SONG James warns. Instead, they sing “If You’re Happy and You Know It” like a gospel rave.

In her sit-down chat with James, Jennifer talked about her time on Idol. James whipped out a photo of the infamous pink dress… That look on Jennifer’s face says it all.
