                  9.36, his face is the face of satisfaction, him flashing back on all the hard work and what he just made the crowd go crazy to.
                  9.51, the small little chuckle while admiring how many people have standed up and clapped and cheered for him, his accomplishment
                  9.58, him actually getting emotional but extremely happy and relieved of the art and music he just made and how many people he could have just inspired to become someone just like him

                                            James Corden is the real deal. Wish he would do the academy awards like this. I am so thankful that I have zero interest in any sort of acting/dancing/singing because I really stink at it, I do love watching others who love doing it! The best part of his show is when the exotic animals come on it, James reminds me of a cuddly teddy bear.
