Stevie twirls baton on The Late Late Show

Stevie Nicks shows off her fabulous hidden talent on The Late Late Show with James Corden!

Stevie Nicks appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden — twirling a baton! A skilled twirler since her high school days, Stevie was nearly flawless until the baton unexpectedly conked her on the head. Of course, her reaction of faux-outrage was adorably priceless. Host James Cordon shared a looping animated GIF photo on social media, showcasing Stevie’s hidden talent, which momentarily crashed the Internet.

Stevie’s charming baton-twirling was part of James Corden’s “Up-in-Coming Celebrity Hidden Talents” segment, which also included the hidden talents of bird-noise-making Kendall Jenner, flying-food-catching Taylor Lautner, and back-flipping Andrew Garfield (see the clips below).

Stevie’s segment was taped last October when both she and Taylor appeared on the show together.

Transcript

James Corden: Hello, good evening. What’s your name and where are you from?

Stevie Nicks: Stephanie Nicks. I’m from uh… I was born in Phoenix, but I was actually reborn in San Francisco in 1969.

JC: And what do you do?

SN: I’m a struggling singer.

JC: All right, what’s your hidden talent?

SN: For some reason, I actually learned how to twirl the baton.

JC: Here we go. We’re going to see it tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, Stephanie Nicks, take it away!

JC: Whoa! Ladies and gentlemen, what a treat!


Now, this isn’t the first time Stevie’s showed off her baton-twirling talent in public. You may recall Stevie’s 2011’s music video for “Secret Love,” where a clip of Stevie twirling the baton appeared for a nano second.

Fans are probably more familiar with Stevie’s baton-twirling in Fleetwood Mac’s 1979 music video for “Tusk,” where the act received some serious airtime.
