The genius behind one of our favourite pop songs of the year, Mark Ronson stops by Capital. And after a special performance one week prior to his visit from James Corden and Emily Blunt on his hit Uptown Funk, we couldn't WAIT to play the special cover back to the man himself! Turns out James stole our thunder a bit after meeting Mark and eagerly sharing the video himself... It is a thing of beauty.
Ahead of the highly anticipated release of 'Into The Woods' stars of the movie, James Corden and Emily Blunt pop by Capital to see Dave Berry, and Lisa Snowdon - where the film's pair show us the range of their vocal ability, as they perform a special cover of the Vodafone Big Top 40 number one 'Uptown Funk', by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
Capital presenters Dave and Lisa couldn't resist a bit of cheeky word play on the songs lyrics... Change 'funk' to 'Blunt' and suddenly you've got something extra special! It certainly made under the weather actress Emily Blunt perk up as she sat through the interview suffering a cold, still whilst remaining flawless.
With Capital becoming famous for its movie star pop covers, do James Corden OBE and Emily Blunt beat the likes of other movie legends Liam Neeson and Vin Diesel? You decide. We reckon things don't get any better than this. And it would seem neither does Mark Ronson!
