Watch Sting & James Corden Sing A Tribute To David Letterman

After David Letterman signed off for the final time on his Late Show Wednesday night, The Late Late Show with James Corden opened up with a musical tribute in honor of Dave.

Corden joined Sting for a little acoustic duet of “Every Breath You Take” outside the iconic Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City for what was supposed to be a heartfelt tribute in honor of Dave.

However the two Brits got into a little tiff after Sting became a little less than enthused about Corden’s decision to add his own lyrics to the Police hit.

After launching into an off-the-cuff rap, Sting stopped the music and asked Corden “what are you doing?” to which Corden replied, “I just thought I’d add a bit of lyrics to make it a bit more ghetto.”

“We don’t need a ‘bit more ghetto’ it’s a great song, it’s a tribute to Dave, it’s his last night. We don’t need none of that, thank you,” an agitated Sting replied.

The two eventually get on the same tune for a harmonious duet of the song, which ended with Corden leaving Sting a dollar tip in his guitar case and a friendly slap on his head.
