We all know that the kids of Netflix's breakout hit, Stranger Things, can act; however, with some help from talk show host James Corden, they've let the world know that they can sing too!
The cast members of the popular series, including Noah Schnapp (Will), Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), performed a Motown parody with Corden on Wednesday night's episode of the talk show and absolutely nailed it!
Corden, who is known for his ridiculously entertaining Carpool Karaoke segments in which he sings along with popular celebrities, went for a slightly different approach with the kids from Stranger Things. The kids tried to keep a straight face as they played their part in a fake documentary, which reveals that were part of a Motown cover band with Corden called The Upside Downs before they became television stars.
"Some people thought it was weird that James hung out with us because he's an adult, but we actually went to school with him," Wolfhard explains at the beginning of the mockumentary. "Yeah, he was held back a couple of years, but we were in the same grade."
McLaughlin quips he and his co-stars/bandmates were chosen to audition for Stranger Things after a Netflix exec saw their band perform at a wedding. Matarazzo then adds that it was Corden who pushed them to accept the television gig and take their shot at becoming famous. Unfortunately, Corden was the only one who didn't make the cut.
Corden and the Stranger Things kids belted out a number of classic Motown hits, including Jackson 5's "I Want You Back," The Temptations' "My Girl," and The Four Tops' "Reach Out I'll Be There."
Although the popularity of Stranger Things, which debuted its second season a few days before Halloween last month, has hit the roof and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon, it's safe to say that the cast members have a career in music to fall back on should the Netflix series come to an end for some reason.
This isn't the first time a Stranger Things star has shown off a singing talent on a talk show. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays the role of the telekinetic badass Eleven on the Netflix series, recently performed a rap recap of the show's first season on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Brown recently revealed she's deaf in one ear but her rapping game is definitely on point. Last year, she amazed audiences by performing Nicki Minaj's rap verse from Kanye West's song "Monster" on Fallon's show.
