Comedian James Corden Joins Coldplay's Chris Martin For Prince Tribute


LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Even months after his death, Prince continues to be a cultural touchstone and the focus of tributes by major artists.

One such recent tribute took place at the Hollywood Rose Bowl on August 21st, when Coldplay frontman Chris Martin invited British late night television host James Corden on stage to pay homage to the fallen idol.

Corden joined Coldplay frontman Chris Martin to perform a duet of Sinead O'Connor's 1990 hit "Nothing Compares 2 U"

"I'll be honest, I didn't know how big it was when I said, 'yes'," Corden joked with a hint of trepidation to the crowd of more than 90,000 fans.

Following the performance, Martin presented Corden with a cake in celebration of his 38th birthday, which took place on August 22nd. – Staff Writers
