James Corden and Kirstin Wiig cover Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah

James Corden and Kristen Wiig attempt to spread some holiday joy with a duet of "Hallelujah", but don't quite hit the right notes

 

    Leonard Cohen's songs are famously moving and sombre - none more so than arguably his most well-known and well-covered song, Hallelujah.

    However, when James Corden and Kirsten Wiig decided to sing the song recently on Corden's The Late, Late Show to "heal the world", they managed to make it the funniest version of a Cohen song ever sung - yet it was still strangely beautiful.

    As Corden said, Hallelujah is "one of the most beautiful, peaceful and powerful songs ever written", but Wiig's version will definitely bring a smile to your face - Hallelujah! Just try and stop yourself from singing along.
