In a video preview, Corden is seen reading the issue of Rolling Stone with Styles on the cover while listening to the single “Sign of the Times.” He suddenly receives a video chat from the 23-year-old who is looking for a place to stay while visiting Los Angeles. He refuses a bed at the late-night host’s home, asking if he could sleep at the studio instead. “I just wanna stay somewhere that feels like home,” Styles explains.
Corden then jokes that the One Direction member can’t bring by any house guests and notes that he’ll have to “pitch in” at the show. Styles offers to sing, but Corden makes it clear that as host, he is the official singer. The pair then engage in a bit about who hangs up first.
It’s unclear if Styles will sing each night of his Late Late Show residency, help host or appear in clips, though it seems like the appearance could be similar to Justin Timberlake’s Tonight Show residency. In his interview with Rolling Stone, it was revealed that Styles is close friends with Corden and producer Ben Winston and he frequently stops by the show’s offices.
