“Pitch Perfect 2” Takes Over “The Late Late Show with James Corden”
Calling “Pitch Perfect” fans everywhere, drop everything and watch this instantly. As What’s Trending’s resident “Pitch Perfect” expert (or fangirl, same thing – almost), I KNOW that you’re all going to lose your minds over this video. On the day of the movie’s release – Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and Hailee Steinfeld from “Pitch Perfect 2” joined James Corden for a very special episode of “The Late Late Show.”
This real life riff-off between Anna Kendrick and James Corden with a little help from The Sing Off‘s Filharmonics gave me so much life that I finally understand why all the teens call their favorite celebrities “mom” and “dad.” Anna and James, I’m at a questionable age to be either of your children – and there might be some scheduling conflicts in this shared custody, but please adopt me. I mean come on, Anna just covered Ludacris’ “Move Bitch.”
James Corden called on his bandleader and star in “Pitch Perfect 2,” Reggie Watts to teach Anna, Brittany, Hailee, and James to beatbox. What happened was a live a Capella arrangement, and it was really great. Speaking of a Capella arrangements, if you want an inside look on how the vocal arrangements for “Pitch Perfect 2” were made – The Verge has a really great video with the movie’s music director.
Of course with how anticipated “Pitch Perfect 2” was, there have been talks about a possible third movie in the series. If that happens, it would be safe to assume that the story will revolve around the newest Bella addition, Hailee Steinfeld (maybe Bechloe will adopt her. Anything is possible!) Steinfeld has an integral part in “Pitch Perfect 2” and recently released a video performing her character Emily’s original song in the movie (a Hailee only version is glaringly missing from the movie’s soundtrack) – and with Pete Wentz on guitar!
Also, in honor of “Pitch Perfect 2” finally being in theaters. Our pal and and star in the movie, Flula came by to try his hand at a YouTube cover challenge! Check it out!
