Stranger Things stars perform Motown medley with James Corden

Four Stranger Things stars showed off their vocal talents when they performed a Motown medley with James Corden on Wednesday night (08Nov17).

For a segment of his late-night talk show The Late Late Show with James Corden, the British TV host was joined by actors Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Noah Schnapp for a documentary-style sketch about their forgotten soul group, The Upside Downs.

In the skit, the stars explained how they formed the band in school, with Wolfhard sharing: "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. You know, he was held back a couple of years, but we were in the same grade."

Though the group were forced to disband after the majority nabbed roles in Netflix's Stranger Things, they decided to reunite for once last performance with Corden.

"I mean, we miss it. We still miss it. So, I called up the boys, and I said, 'Let's get the band back together for one more night,'" added Wolfhard.

To conclude the segment, the boys joined Corden onstage for an showstopping performance of classic tunes, including Reach Out I'll Be There from The Four Tops, My Girl from The Temptations, and I Want You Back from The Jackson 5.
