Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that Carpool Karaoke is a huge success. The recurring segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden invites famous musical guests to sing along to their songs with him whilst travelling in a car driven by Corden.
The idea segment was inspired by a Gavin & Stacey-themed sketch Corden had participated in for the British charity television special Red Nose Day 2011, in which he sang along with George Michael in a car.
