James Corden Jokes Kanye West Stole His Valentine's Day Idea — and Has Kenny G Serenade His Guests

James Corden joked about Kanye West's epic Valentine's Day surprise on The Late Late Show

Kanye West may have thought up the most extravagant Valentine’s Day surprise for his wife, Kim Kardashian West, but James Corden took it one step further.

After West, 41, hired world-renowned saxophonist Kenny G to play a private performance for Kardashian West in their home on Valentine’s Day, Corden upped the ante when he invited Kenny G to play for all of his guests on Thursday night’s episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Kenny G showed up in the guests’ dressing rooms while Corden was introducing them — beginning with actor Ray Romano, who opened his door to reveal the musician playing the saxophone behind him, surrounded by vases of roses that mimicked West’s setup.

“Now, here’s the thing Ray,” Corden joked. “We’ve been planning this for ages! We didn’t know that Kanye was going to steal our thunder this morning and just do this, but we thought this would be a lovely Valentine for you.”

“It’s wonderful,” Romano said, “but it’s just me and him. It’s just us. Kenny, stop!”

“He can’t stop, he’s Kenny G!” Corden laughed.

Corden then went on to introduce the rest of his guests (The Good Place star D’Arcy Carden and the band Lukas Graham) in their dressing rooms, as Kenny G serenaded each of them in the background.

Carden could barely hear the host speaking as Kenny G played behind her. “James, I truly can’t hear a word you’re saying but I’m having a great Valentine’s,” she laughed. “I do think you’re saying words, but I only hear Kenny in my ear.”

“We got our little Kanye moment in here,” a Lukas Graham band member added. “It doesn’t get any better than this, does it?”

Kardashian West, 38, documented Kenny G’s private performance on Twitter on Thursday, filming the musician as he stood in the middle of a room filled with white, pink and red roses placed in individual vases.

“NO BIG DEAL KENNY G IN MY LIVING ROOM!!!” she wrote, adding, “Happy Valentines Day.”

“Best husband award goes to mine!!!!” she wrote in another tweet. “Most thoughtful gifts ever!!!!”

On Thursday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also dedicated a sweet post to her husband for Valentine’s Day, sharing two old photos of the couple: one of them kissing, and a selfie of them smiling.

“Happy Valentines Day babe!!!” she wrote. “I love you so much.”

The holiday came at a special time for the couple: PEOPLE confirmed in January that Kardashian West and West are expecting their fourth child together, a baby boy, via surrogate.

They’re already parents to son Saint, 3, daughter North, 5½, and daughter Chicago, 1, who was also born via surrogate.

A source recently told PEOPLE that the couple has “always talked about wanting four kids: two boys and two girls.”

“That’s always been the plan,” said the insider, adding that they are surely “over the moon” about the “wonderful news” of their little one on the way.
