James Corden is honoured by the London popster
Lily Allen has written a song for 2008 Shockwaves NME Awards host James Corden, who picked up two BAFTA awards at the London ceremony on Sunday night (April 20).
Corden individually picked up the Best Comedy Performance award, while the comedy he stars in, ‘Gavin And Stacey’, won the Audience Award – voted for by the public.
In February Corden hosted the Shockwaves NME Awards in London‘s Indigo2 venue, alongside his co-star in ‘Gavin And Stacey’, Matthew Horne.
Corden‘s friend Lily Allen has since written a song, ‘From Barry To Billericay’, in honour of the comedian. Allen couldn’t attend the BAFTA ceremony herself, but she sent the song’s lyrics to Corden in a sealed envelope, reports the Daily Star.
The song includes the lyric, “Your heart is the ocean we all get swept up in”.
The song is one of a new batch of songs the singer has written recently, having posted two new songs on her MySpace page in the past week.
Corden, meanwhile, celebrated his win after the ceremony by joking: “I’m a sex god. I’ll have gone through most of the ladies here by the end of the night.”
