Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel-Miranda perform 22 musicals in 12 minutes

Emily Blunt Lin Manuel Miranda James Corden

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Blunt are gearing up for the premiere of their new film Mary Poppins Returns, which hits cinemas today, December 19! Then came Chicago, with Blunt taking on Liza Minnelli's "All That Jazz" (feather boa and all). A song from "Into the Woods", which Blunt and Corden previously co-starred in, was also in there. Blunt plugged Under Armour during a piece from Les Mis and donned a different wig for Moulin Rouge.

In Disney's "Mary Poppins Returns", an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Blunt and Corden eventually acquiesced and let Miranda play a tree.

The dozen minutes certainly encapsulate classicss as it hopscothes through eras: Guys and Dolls and Fiddler on the Roof to Cabaret and Evita to Beauty and the Beast and Mamma Mia! to La La Land and, of course, Mary Poppins Returns.

Emily Blunt stars as the magical nanny in the sequel, which is expected to make between $54 million and $75 million during the Wednesday to Sunday frame. She's a bit sassy - Mary Poppins.
