His singing has wooed the world over, but there are some places where even Harry Styles shouldn't croon.

In a sketch on James Corden's Late Late Show, the former One Direction star and pal played a pair who can't help but burst into song at the most inappropriate moments, according to Daily Mail.

In the bit, the host and 23-year-old star find they can't stop the groove while performing surgery, attending a funeral, and disarming a deadly bomb. 

As soon as the Sign Of The Times singer comes on screen, screams erupt from the audience.

First, James and Harry appear as surgeons in the midst of a serious operation.

Out of nowhere, the scrubs-clad Styles begins to quietly croon It's Not Unusual by Tom Jones.

Then, James's character chimes in and things quickly escalate.

Committing a major hospital faux pas, the on-screen doctors pull off their masks and begin to boogie.

While they swing their arms in song, another team of doctors rushes in to try to resuscitate their now flat-lining patient.

"Oh, that was definitely my bad," the English host apologises. 

The sketch moves on, this time to casket-carrying pallbearers at a funeral who break out into a rendition of Mambo No. 5.

As the song arrives at its chorus, the duo completely forgets their duties, stepping away from the coffin to flash jazz-hands and joyfully shimmy at mourners.

They finish their diddy and hang their heads before the priest tells the pair, "I think you to should leave."

Finally, their singing and dancing antics move on to a tense bomb removal, à la The Hurt Locker.

As a timer counts down, James reminds Harry this is not the time for a song.

"The whole world is relying on us," he tells him before stressing, "No singing, no singing. No singing.:

But still, the pair are overwhelmed by the spirit of dance as Harry starts singing Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.

"Don't you dare. Keep it together," says Corden before he begins to snap his fingers.

They ditch their bomb suits to reveal the same "Choose Life" tee shirts worn by the 80s duo as they perform their most spirited dance right above the still-ticking time bomb. 

The skit ends on a literal high note, as the boys sing in falsetto and the bomb goes off.

Before their hilarious skit, Harry kicked off the evening with a charming monologue that earned plenty of laughs from the audience.

Later, he grabbed his guitar to perform the song Two Ghosts off his new album.

Harry Styles' self-titled solo debut is available now.
