James Corden, Emily Blunt And Lin-Manuel Miranda Raced Through 22 Musicals In 12 Minutes

James Corden put Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical theatre skills to the test on 'The Late Late Show'.

The Mary Poppins Returns stars joined Corden in smashing through 22 classic musicals in just 12 minutes -- a feat that surely should be entered in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Proving that they're all absolute theatre geeks, the trio performed tracks from beloved musicals including Chicago, Evita, Annie, Singin' In The Rain, The Muppet Movie and The Wizard Of Oz. 

And, of course, they sang a little number from Mary Poppins Returns -- the new reboot of the 1964 classic.

"This is one of my favourite things we've ever done on @latelateshow," Corden wrote on Twitter.

The musical segment also featured some very impressive fake piano playing from Corden, a flurry of wig and costume changes and showed The Late Late Show's production team were very dedicated to creating backdrops and props for nearly two-dozen musicals for a very short segment.
