James Corden did Riverdance live last night and it was actually quite impressive

Doing Flatley proud.

JAMES CORDEN HAS been doing a half decent job in late night telly in the US this year – and last night provided him with his greatest challenge yet.

Yes, he attempted the Riverdance. And he was actually quite good at it.

He started off slow
