Kristen Bell joined James Corden on The Late Late Show recently, and the two had prepared a special duet designed to wow the audience.
The only trouble was that some of the stunts incorporated into the performance went terribly awry. The pair were supposed to be suspended in the air by wires as they belted out "Up Where We Belong."
Though they gave it their best effort, the aerial portion of the program simply didn't work out. When Bell was suspended, Corden was left on the ground, gazing helplessly up at his singing partner. When Corden's wires finally began to cooperate, Bell began to plummet back down towards the stage.

However, the two are quick on their feet and played it off, making the bit even funnier. Both feigned horror and outraged as the song came to a close. Seriously, Kristen Bell can do no wrong.
