High Wycombe boy turned international celebrity, James Corden, took to the stage in front of crowds of A-listers last night to host the 2017 Grammy Awards.

The comedian was joined backstage by his parents as he hosted the 59th annual awards show in LA – which saw him fall down a flight of stairs onto the stage as he faked a technical glitch at the start of the show.

The star wowed crowds, recreating his popular Carpool Karaoke sketch, singing Sweet Caroline with a host of famous singers.

However singer Adele stole the show winning five Grammys on a record-breaking night for the star, but she was left "devastated" after fluffing her musical tribute to George Michael.

The 28-year-old won album of the year for 25 and record and song of the year for Hello, beating her "idol" Beyonce to the three top awards.

Corden, who previously attended Holmer Green Senior School, has gone from strength-to-strength in recent years, quickly becoming one of the biggest names in show business.

He has gone from lining the streets of High Wycombe in the Salvation Army band to brushing shoulders with the likes of Michelle Obama, Justin Bieber and Adele on a weekly basis.

The 38-year-old lived in Hazlemere, attending Park Middle School – now known as Cedar Park School – before moving down the road to Holmer Green Upper School, as it was then known.
