The world has changed and the way we interview famous people has, too.
The Late Late Show with James Corden (also known as Late Late) is an American late-night talk show. Corden’s biggest hit on his show is a segment called Carpool Karaoke. Corden picks up a celeb on his way to work, and he and his musical guests sing along to the radio whilst driving in Los Angeles.
Every single time James Corden delivers another “Carpool Karaoke” session on the Late Late Show, it makes our day!
The segments, which have featured artists such as Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, Adele, Mariah Carey or the Red Hot Chili Peppers are the most popular and viral videos on the Late Late Show’s YouTube channel. All of these videos have millions of views in their YouTube Channel, becoming the part of the show with the highest audience numbers and the part that everybody of the show that everybody looks forward to!
Check these clips out from JLo and Adele singing along with Corden (Adele’s is the most viewed):
With this type of interview we can see these singers in an informal setting and they come across as much more down to earth— Not like their onstage concert person at all, but just like a real person who has to battle traffic on the way to work everyday (well, almost)!
Even the first lady Michelle Obama sang with Corden, although the car never leaves the White House grounds. Can you spot the Secret Service in the background?
Who do you think should be next? Corden might take requests :)
