Demi Lovato and James Corden face off in Divas Riff-Off

Demi Lovato and James Corden face off in Divas Riff-Off

"They didn't have Instagram; they just had sass, voice, songs".

James Corden just learned never to challenge a modern diva.

We would never challenge Demi Lovato to a "divas riff-off" because it's pretty clear that she is already the victor, but James Corden was courageous enough to do it on his show last night!

With the help of a cappella group Level, Lovato launched into Adele's "Rolling in the Deep", which was met with thunderous applause. "You're the best damn diva I've ever seen", she told him.

"And, um, I got hits that are my own", Lovato responded.

The petitioners moved a writ petition in the high court in 2015 and the court had sought reply from the respondents, Sinha said. This has reportedly created the scarcity of meat in the state leading to the shutting down of many meat selling shops.


On his part, James served a commendable performance, repping the divas of days past by belting out Tina Turner's River Deep Mountain High and Aretha Franklin's Respect.

Talking about his favorite tunes, the Late Late Show host claimed that "divas back then are just fiercer" than the singing starlets of today.

Is it cheating if you sing a song that you wrote when the other person doesn't have any? It's then that Demi Lovato appeared on the side of the stage to interrupt James, though she's not technically on until the next segment.
