    I love how proud Adam Driver looked, how proud they all looked of James, and the whistles and cheers. So wholesome.

    Seen it fir the 5th time and it stilled me cry with emotion. The best opening show ever! I can relate, feel the energy, feel alive, and wish I had seen it live. Thanks James.

    I love Corden he is a great personality but he doesn't have a broadway voice so sometimes made the song jarring to hear but kudos, was really fun to watch :D

    Hats off to whomever wrote this number. It's brilliantly performed but it's also brilliantly written for a just one performance opening number.
