4. David Schwimmer vs. James Corden vs. Rebel Wilson
David played Ross Geller in the all-time favourite sitcom, FRIENDS. His character was very much loved and also hated by fans for some of his pretty bad decisions during the show. No, it wasn’t a break, Ross!

Meanwhile, a sudden yet super exciting appearance by actress Rebel got the crowd going wild. She’s truly famous as well for her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect.

She even started her own production company, 606 Films, with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas.
1. Jason Derulo vs. Liam Payne
Everyone knows Jason’s songs…mainly because he will announce his name in them. He has dropped many amazing dance tracks such as Wriggle, Talk Dirty, Swalla, etc.
Liam, on the other hand, is much loved due to the fact that he was a part of One Direction before they split. His partner is Cheryl who recently just gave birth to their first son named Bear Payne.
Cheryl was one of the judges when Liam was in 2010’s The X Factor.
