                      Entertainers on all levels are so useless.
                      But let the mesmerized masses on all levels justify their bullshit lives.
                      And that is all of you!!!

                                            Just bringing more people to dance isn't an achievement. If James did bike sprint for 3 months to prior to this. His transformation shock would be enough. Fat Corden is Fat

                                                    I respect your opinion but you should also understand that he's not trained in singing and tried his best to do it so give him credit for that
