Carpool karaoke: Making singing in cars cool since 2015
Lady Gaga recently confirmed took to Twitter to share the news with her fans that she would be the next star to appear on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. Naturally, Gaga’s Little Monsters went into meltdown over the news and for good reason – watching her belt out her biggest tunes with Corden was everything we’d hoped it would be and more. Who knew Lady Gaga was so funny?
While we wait for Gaga’s appearance to drop, take a look back on the very best stars who have already appeared on Carpool Karaoke…
You might have thought that James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke couldn’t get any better – but it just did. Mariah Carey has been spotted filming what looks like a Christmas edition of Carpool Karaoke, and it’s literally all we want for Christmas.
The pair were spotted driving around in an SUV with a Christmas tree attached to it (naturally) and James was appropriately decked out in a Christmas jumper – because, what else? – according to People.
While there are endless holiday hits Mariah can choose from for her festive appearance, there’s only one that we really want to hear. No Mariah Carey Christmas appearance would be complete without her singing All I Want for Christmas is You, amiright? It’s never too early for a listen, if you ask us.
Although we’re yet to have a date for Christmas Carpool Karaoke’s air, we are SO excited. While you wait for this one to drop, look back on the best Carpool Karaoke celebrity appearances below.
It was really only a matter of time before the queen of teen pop herself joined the ranks of Carpool Karaoke stars. Naturally, all of our favourite Britney hits were covered, and James Corden even joined Britney in dressing up in that schoolgirl costume from Baby One More Time. We just can’t explain how good it is. You need to watch.
When you’ve had George Clooney, One Direction, and Justin Bieber on your show, where do you go next? Who is famous enough, amazing enough, that you can top some of the world’s most famous faces?
That’s right. The First Lady of the United States was on Carpool Karoke. And it was literally everything we could ever have dreamed of. Why are American politicians inherently so much cooler than ours? Much as we love Philip May, we really can’t see him jamming to Missy Elliot. Words can’t do Michelle’s appearance justice. Just watch it.
James Corden and Late Late Show executive producer Ben Winston are said to be shopping out the carpool concept to TV stations – and according to reports, it’s already garnering massive interest. Did someone say massive bidding war?
Ohh car karaoke drama, who’d have thought it?
To celebrate Carpool Karaoke’s success, let’s take a look at our favourite car sharing, singing moments so far… (We challenge you not to sing along.)
Stick a fork in us, we’re done.
Red Hot Chili Peppers
When James Cordon invited the Red Hot Chili Peppers into his car, their soft rock vibes took us back to the early noughties. Cordon and the gang sang their way through their impressive repertoire of the Chilli Pepper’s hits that you’ll definitely remember the words to, including “Can’t Stop,” “Californication,” “The Zephyr Song”, getting hot and deciding to strip off, though drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer did remain fully clothed throughout. Not content to keep their antics to the car, at one point, Corden pulled over so he and frontman Anthony Kiedis could partake in some manly wrestling on a lawn.
