      That was good but, you know, he's no Neil Patrick Harris.

                      He would sing a lot better if he would to lose weight. Plus, he's English with that accent...couldn't understand anything. When you have seen one opening, you've seen them all.

                                                  Now THAT’S how you open a show!!!!!!!!!!

                                                  And he was so cute at the end tearing up and feeling overwhelmed with joy and pride and from receiving the love and ovation from the Broadway industry!

                                                  • family tea and lots of yarn.

                                                    And that's why they pay him the big bucks!!!!! America may have him on loan but he will always be our natural treasure x

                                                      He will never compare to Neil Patrick Harris!! James Corden insults Broadway and promotes his own show during the opening number. Disgraceful compared to NPH's legendary performances
