The Queen of Rock and Roll slays on The Late Late Show, charms Taylor Lautner
On Thursday, Stevie Nicks appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden. She performed her Top 5 hit “Leather and Lace” (from Bella Donna), which was originally a duet with Eagles’ Don Henley. For this performance, Stevie sang the entire song with harmony help from her backup singers (Sharon Celani and Marilyn Martin) for the second half of the song, similar to the way it had been done for The White Winged Dove Tour in 1981. Afterwards, host James Corden showered Stevie with praise in his trademark tongue-and-cheek way, dropping to his knees to kiss the Queen of Rock and Roll’s boots!
After the performance, Stevie sat with fellow guests actors Taylor Lautner and Zach Galifianakis for a short interview. Stevie shared the story of when she and Taylor first met at a major Twilight: New Moon (2009) film-premiere after-party and explained how the second Twilight film inspired the recording of the song “Moonlight (A Vampire’s Dream)” and the 2011 album In Your Dreams. Taylor recalled meeting Stevie at the party, but admitted he didn’t remember hearing the actual story due to being starstruck from meeting her in person — telling her, “I’m a huge fan.”
Stevie enjoyed being on the show, sharing a photo on her Facebook page with the caption, “Love James Corden. So much fun!” She also took a selfie with James Corden, Taylor Lautner, and Zach Galifianakis, which James posted to The Late Late Show’s Facebook page.
The Late Late Show with James Corden airs on CBS weeknights at 12:37am.
