WATCH: Jeff Goldblum Worshipped In 'Thank U, Jeff'

While Ariana Grande is singing about her exes in “thank u, next,” late night host James Corden is singing about one of his favourite guests.

In a parody of Grande’s smash hit on Wednesday’s episode of The Late Late Show, Corden paid tribute to actor Jeff Goldblum.

“First saw him in The Fly / Where his face was grotesque / Then he won independence from an alien mess,” Corden sings. “In Thor: Ragnarok his performance was classic / But who could forget the hot doctor that he played in Jurassic?”

Corden’s “thank u, jeff” spoofs many of the scenes in Grande’s video, which itself parodies classic teen rom-coms. The comedian performs on stage with dancers dressed as some of Goldblum’s iconic characters – while the actor himself videotapes from the audience (a la Kris Jenner’s spoof of Amy Poehler in Mean Girls).

Grande is a fan of Corden’s take on her hit. She tweeted: “omg...... may i please..... please for christmas have the thank u, jeff book? it’s for a friend. promise.”
