Meg Ryan, Adam Scott and James Corden perform Beyonce-inspired soap opera

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13 (UPI) — Meg Ryan and Adam Scott joined The Late Late Show host James Corden in a soap opera-style skit where all the dialogue was derived from Beyonce lyrics.

The fake daytime drama, The Bold and The Lyrical, featured Scott and Ryan as secret lovers whose trysts were discovered by Ryan’s boyfriend, played by Corden.

The skit opened with Scott and Ryan in bed and Scott’s opening line of, “I love to love you, baby,” from Beyonce’s song “Naughty Girl.”

Ryan replied with another line from the song, “Tonight I’ll be your naughty girl.”

Corden, offstage, called out “baby girl,” a nod to Beyonce’s song “Baby Boy,” featuring Sean Paul.

Corden then took it old school with some Destiny’s Child lyrics from “Say My Name.”

“You’re acting kind of shady,” he told Ryan who was struggling to keep a straight face while Scott hid under the covers. “You ain’t calling me baby. Why the sudden change?”

Corden discovered Scott under the blanket and the two used Queen Bey (and a little Lady Gaga from Scott) to fight over Ryan who ultimately told Corden, “If you liked it then you should’ve put a ring on it,” before delivering a classic soap opera slap.

Ryan ultimately chooses Scott leaving Corden to say, “I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly, cuz my body is too bootylicious for you babe,” from the 2001 song “Bootylicious.”
