James Corden is quickly becoming my favourite late night TV show host. His honest, no-fuss approach is endearing and he is the man responsible for Carpool Karaoke, so I am basically eternally grateful for that.
In his segment’s latest instalment, Corden picks up none other than Sia, who just recently released her latest album, This Is Acting. Wearing her trademark, face-hiding wig, the pair drove around town whilst smashing out some of Sia’s biggest hits including Chandelier, Alive, Elastic Heart and the David Guetta track she features on, Titanium. And if there were any doubts whether her voice really is that good, they are well and truly quashed now after this, as Sia absolutely belts out the hooks of her hits, pushing her voice even more than the original records in some instances.
However, the best part about this segment is the snapshot into the type of person the artist is. Whether it be Adele spitting Nicki Minaj‘s verse on the Kanye West track Monster, or Justin Bieber fooling around picking out Corden’s clothes, the bits in between the songs are just as good, if not better.
In the case of this, Sia gets real with Corden about her decision to hide her face, saying she only wears it when cameras are around. She also detailed the period in her life before that decision, saying she was once an alcoholic and a drug addict, and although clean at the time she started becoming really famous, she found it detrimental to her mental wellbeing. And so it came to be.
Check it out for yourself below, and stick with it to watch Sia’s slightly weird and intriguing party trick where she can hole 12 eggs in her fingers. Yeah, seriously.
