(Radio.com) The #SaveNelly movement is gaining momentum. When word of his $2.4 million tax debt reached fans, they conspired to restore his finances by streaming "Hot in Herre" hundreds of millions of times.

Now late-night hosts are joining the effort: Stephen Colbert performed "Debt in Herre," a helpful guide for financial solvency, while James Corden made gratuitous use of "Hot in Herre" on his show so Nelly'd get a cut of the royalties.

Colbert's advice (cleared through his accountant, Wendy) included writing off clothing purchased for work, stopping IOUs, and more. On The Late Late Show, Corden installed a button that played "Hot in Herre" on demand, costing the production $6,000 each time he pressed it. We're not sure how much of that will go directly to Nelly, but fans can (and probably will) do the math.

Maybe CBS late night will singlehandedly lift Nelly from the precipice of financial ruin? Watch Colbert's rap here.
