This will be the group’s third and final guesting in the show. They first appeared in 2019 when they performed Kill This Love and played the game Flinch, where fruits were being thrown at the girls as they stand behind a plexiglass, with the challenge of remaining still.
They returned to the show in 2021 where they performed Pretty Savage. They also shared their pre-show routine, including how they prepared for their online concert The Show at that time.
Other than the K-pop girl group, joining the show’s finale are Ben Affleck, Tom Cruise, Kate Hudson, Mila Kunis, and The Kardashians, among others.
The Late Late Show with James Corden will be wrapping their set after its eight-year run. The show first announced that it is going off the air last April 2022 following Corden’s exit as its host, citing a reason to find “new opportunities.”
“I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it,” he said in one of its episodes. “And I really think in a year from now, that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
“It’s a really hard decision to leave because I’m so immensely proud of the show,” Corden told Deadline. “I’m thrilled to be extending [the contract]. I always thought I’d do [the show] for five years and then leave, and then I stayed on. I’ve really been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure.”
James Corden hosted the show since March 2015, following Craig Ferguson who hosted it from 2005 to 2014.
