James Corden teamed up with Anna Kendrick and Billy Eichner to create a musical that covers a lifetime in five minutes on “The Late Late Show.”


“Now life moves pretty fast, and if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it,” Corden begins, as he introduces the sketch to his audience, quoting “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” “We’ve got 14 songs, 10 sets, one take and zero pressure.”

The skit is a series of covers that chronicles the life of a woman, played by Kendrick, as she goes from being born to her own maternity, with each part of her life being represented by a song.

Her life begins with Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It,” and she goes through childhood and adolescence to a great number of covers, with Eichner as the girl’s dad and Corden as her love interest.

The girl goes from graduate to working woman, gets married and has a child of her own. Corden and Eichner back her up singing, and they all do a phenomenal job.

Kendrick’s got chops.
