Celebrities offered words of support on social media in wake of the explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England which claimed the lives of 22 people on Monday night.

James Corden also gave an emotional tribute to the victims during his opening monologue for “The Late Late Show” on Monday night.

“When I think of Manchester, the place that I know, I think of the spirit of the people there. And I’m telling you, a more tightknit group of people you will be hard-pressed to find. Strong, proud, caring people with community at its core. And if it was even possible, the spirit of the people of Manchester will grow even stronger this evening,” Corden says.
