A musical soap opera inspired by Beyonce lyrics has debuted on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Starring Meg Ryan, Adam Scott and Corden, the new segment is called The Bold and the Lyrical and has guest actors using lyrics from famous songs as dialogue.

In this particular case, they used lyrics from Beyonce tunes.

The scene starts with Ryan and Scott as secret lovers, whispering lyrics from Naughty Girl and Say My Name.


Corden then comes home and discovers the affair, crying out "Ring the alarm," causing Scott to admit he's Ryan's "baby boy".

Ryan murmurs, "Uh-oh," which quickly evolves into the refrain from Crazy in Love.

Corden and Ryan's tiff turns to melodrama with lyrics from Halo, Hold Up and Flawless, before Corden throws out a harsh, "But don't ever get to thinking you're irreplaceable." Ryan responds with a stoic Single Ladies lyric and a slap.

The scene ends with an upset Corden getting the final word: "I don't think you're ready for this jelly, because my body's too bootylicious for you, babe."
