Anna Kendrick's 'Pitch Perfect' Riff-Off On 'Late Late Show' Is Brilliant & These 9 Moments Are Must-See — VIDEO
Still high off Friday's release of Pitch Perfect 2? I don't blame you — and I also won't judge your plans to go see it in theaters about 15 times, because I'm a firm believer in following your dreams, and also that sounds awesome. However, in between at least one of those screenings, I definitely recommend you take a moment to check out Anna Kendrick's Pitch Perfect riff-off on The Late Late Show With James Corden, which took place Friday night, because it's amazing. In true Pitch Perfect fashion, the late night host and the singer/actress took to the stage to battle it out in a riff-off, aided by a cappella group The Filharmonic.
While both held their own, (spoiler alert) Kendrick won — surprise, surprise. Seriously though, do you remember a time before celebrities had to prove they were endearing by singing or fake singing in a charmingly competitive manner on TV? There are definitely some celebrities sweating nervously on their couches, hoping that they won't be asked to become a triple threat on late night TV.
Kendrick, however, always seems game. She had the unenviable task of following up One Direction — the newly shrunken boy band made their first appearance without Zayn Malik on Corden's show the night before — and she certainly rose to the challenge. She's got the pseudo-cocky thing down pat, which is always pretty adorable. As she and Corden battled it out with some *NSYNC and Ludacris, it was clear that she was in it to win it.
Here are the best moments from her appearance.
