With every episode of The Late Late Show, more of James Corden’s dreams are being realized. He gets to sing with his musical idols on Carpool Karaoke, but now he’s putting a boy band back together—and joining it.

Corden starts off strong by bringing the Backstreet Boys back together, but this time he’s got one better. He joins in on a performance of “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and becomes the sixth member of the band. It’s too soon to tell what box he fits into, but he’s already in sync with the rest of the band—he knows the words and the dance moves.

Yep, he’s pretty much all of us.
