The winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 26, ahead of the actual show, which airs on May 16. James Corden has been nominated for his hilarious Carpool Karaoke series, and we can hardly think of someone more deserving.

Check out the list of nominees here.

Jimmy Fallon and Melissa McCarthy took a shot at Lip Sync Battle and what ensued was intense.

The hilarious actress was there to promote her latest film The Boss, which hits theaters this week on April 8. Melissa does her own interpretation of “Colors of the Wind,” while Fallon perfected ZAYN’s “PILLOWTALK.”
