British actor/ presenter James Corden has made his move across the pond a successful one; taking over as host of The Late Late Show from Craig Ferguson and bringing his own brand of humor and interviewing techniques to the masses. One of the best segments of The Late Late Show is undoubtedly ‘Carpool Karaoke’, where Corden will ask a famous singer to ride in his car in order to help him get to work.
So far, guests like Stevie Wonder, Justin Bieber and One Direction have given us some brilliant moments, but it seems that one massive star might have just topped the lot. Oscar-Winner Adele, currently enjoying phenomenal success with her album 25, is Corden’s latest passenger to take part in Carpool Karaoke, though since they filmed in London it was classed as a ‘drive around the area’ as carpool lanes don’t come into play. Take a look, above.
It’s fair to say that both Adele and Corden crushed it; singing along to her most recent hit ‘Hello,’ as well as other classic Adele tracks including ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Rolling in the Deep’. The singer wasn’t afraid to try her hand at other people’s tunes either; singing along to the Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ and even showcasing her rapping skills.
The pair also found time to chat, too. In typical no-nonsense Adele fashion, she described meeting a friend for dinner and getting so drunk that she paid for other diner’s meals and promised to hook a Nashville family up with tickets to her sold out world tour. Adele also discussed her love of the Spice Girls – and being heartbroken when Geri Halliwell left – as well as the possibility of forming a new squad with Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, to rival Taylor Swift and her crew.
It’s no surprise that Adele smashes every song she sings along to; her vocals really are perfection. But Corden is impressive too, especially in his harmonies, and shouldn’t be underestimated, seeing as he’s also a Tony award-winning stage actor – and has shown off his singing abilities on the big screen before too, in films like One Chance and Into the Woods. Could a duet between the two be a possibility in the future? Unlikley, probably, but at least we’ve got this to enjoy while we fervently hope for that to happen.
