  1. John's cool and all, but I have to say this – Markiplier's better at making ANYTHING sounds sexy. And he doesn't need to sing to make it so. 😀

  2. I honestly feel as though there is no one currently in the industry that is more likeable than John Legend.  I don't know him from jack…just a feeling that he's a genuine and awesome human being.

  3. Are you guys gonna post any videos of Dr John performing on the show? Being from the UK it's difficult for me to watch by other means.

  4. I LOVE John Legend as a human being, just can't stand his music. Maybe it's because I think balads in general are quite bland. In an elevator it may be OK.. but even then I'd find it irritating I'd think. Don't get me wrong, he's a great singer and sexy as hell, but… his songs are so boring.

  5. John Legend is the most arrogant name I can think of. No, wait Jesus Legend is slightly more arrogant. Maybe he should cut the crap and call himself God.

  6. Colbert, an unfunny and idiot turd. This was stolen from Letterman. And he did it with BARRY WHITE, not with a talentless twat such as this one. Seems like any unfunny asswpe can get a show in the U.S.

  7. I never knew who Legend was until JCSS on Easter. I had seen him on awards show and thought "he's good." I am 64. He is SO good-looking, with a wonderful voice.. Loved the musical.
