On last night’s Late Late Show, James Corden made the claim that he’s the sexiest male vocalist alive: “I believe I’ve got a sensualness and a sexuality in my voice” the host said, before Usher appeared onstage to cheers.

“Well, I’m alive,” Usher said. “Let’s be honest: when people imagine smooth, sensual, sexual, soulful voices, you know, are they gonna picture a guy like you or do they think of a guy like me…Usher?”

In typical Late Late Show style, the argument was settled with a sing-off. First, Corden performed K-Ci & JoJo’s “All My Life,” backed by an a cappella group. Corden got very close to Usher’s face and the singer quipped: “Somebody get this guy a Tic-Tac.”

Next it was Usher’s turn and he chose Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me” to defend the sexiest-vocalist crown. Actor Luke Evans crashed the stage to tell Usher and Corden that their efforts didn’t impress him much. He then launched into a rendition of “I Want to Know What Love Is.”
