On Wednesday night, James Corden had his hands full when Kristin Chenoweth, Beth Behrs, AND Julie Chen all stopped by his late night show — but luckily there was enough singing for everyone!

Being the great host he is, Corden did his best to compliment and please each of the ladies, but Kristin was feeling a bit left out as she thought she was J.C.'s special lady. Awww!
