Adam Lambert and James Corden performed a sing-off battle on CBS-TV’s The Late Late Show to determine who would be the better frontman for legendary rockers Queen, and video from the program is available.

Corden was sharing news of Queen and Lambert’s newly-announced summer tour of North America when he referenced lead singer Lambert’s role with one his favorite bands.

“It’s alright,” says Corden. “Should be a British man. I’m not saying I’d be a better frontman than him, I’m just saying I’d be a better frontman than him.”

Lambert then suddenly appeared on the show to question Corden’s claim before the two delivered a sing-off battle with some help from Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor before an enthusiastic studio audience.

Queen and Lambert will perform their first North American shows in three years when they kick off a summer trek across the continent starting in Phoenix, AZ on June 23.

Tickets for the tour are available now via the usual outlets.

Corden will host the 59th annual Grammy Awards live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on February 12 on CBS-TV, starting at 8:00 PM EST.
