James Corden Takes Carpool Karaoke On The Road, Heads To The White House

James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke segment has become a mainstay in pop culture. The Late Late Show host took his segment on the road this week with a visit to the White House. So who joined Corden for some driving and tunes? First Lady Michelle Obama of course!

After some questioning and strict instructions from security, Corden is allowed through the gates where, since she has some time to spare; FLOTUS opts to give him a tour of the grounds while they drive around. Seeing as Obama never has the time to jam while in the car, she requests Corden put on some tunes so they can rock out for a bit. The First Lady is a huge fan of Stevie Wonder and the duo break out into his classic “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours.”

The pair then go on to discuss whether or not FLOTUS will miss having people at her beck and call 24/7. The First Lady will miss the people she’s come to know and seen everyday over the past 7 1/2 years; but not so much the perk of being able to call down and order a grilled cheese and a milkshake at 3 a.m.. After Michelle reveals her and POTUS’s code names, she helps Corden come up with one of his own before they break out into Queen Bey’s “Single Ladies” and of course the duo couldn’t resist bringing out the dance moves.

After an epic sing off of “Single Ladies” the two go on to discuss Obama’s education initiative Let Girls Learn. She even reveals that she joined Snapchat as a way to keep the public here informed of the struggles girls around the world face as it pertains to getting an education. This is followed by sing-a-long of “This Is For My Girls,” the anthem for Michelle’s initiative which features Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Zendaya, Chloe x Halle, Lea Michelle, Janelle Monáe, Jadagrace, and Missy Elliott; who pops out the back seat to deliver her high energy verse.

The trio close out their car ride by breaking out into one of Missy’s catalog of hits, “Get Ur Freak On,” which Michelle knows almost word for word. At the end Missy can’t stand to leave Obama and Corden, but she has a 1:55 tour she can’t miss.

You can watch the complete car ride which has already amassed over 2.5 million views in less than 24 hours below. More information on Obama’s education initiative Let Girls Learn is available here.

Watch: James Corden Connects With Gwen Stefani + Surprise Guests For Carpool Karaoke

gwen

James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke segment has become a mainstay in pop culture. For this Wednesday’s segment Corden penned Gwen Stefani to ride along for his commute to work. 

The duo of course sang songs from Stefani’s catalog before hitting a bump in the road courtesy of the HOV lane restrictions. Cordon was quick on his feet and was able to find someone to join them, enter George Clooney. They were still one passenger short so Clooney rang up a pal who jumped at the opportunity after hearing Stefani was there and who was this pal but none other then Julia Roberts.

The gang was now ready to hit the road again and proceeded to breakout into Stefani’s hit “Holla Back Girl” to which Clooney and Roberts knew the words. After a brief discussion about what holla back girl means which Clooney nailed, Stefani reveals someone inspired the track but remained mum on the details and ends with Clooney hitting everyone with “this sh*t is bananas.”

The ride continues as Corden ask the two thespians what their favorite line from their numerous roles is. Roberts goes with a line from the Oceans series where she says to Clooney’s character, “You’re just a liar and a thief” and he responds “I only lied about being a thief.”

Their hilarious car ride continues while the foursome hit us with a rendition of the Queen’s classic “We Are The Champions,” which they totally nail.

Watch the complete almost 15 minute carpool ride below. The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS at 11:35 pm EST.

Watch: Sia Helps James Corden Find His Way On Latest Edition Of Carpool Karaoke

James Corden Carpool Karaoke segment never disappoints. This week Corden was joined by singer and songwriter Sia.

The clip starts off with Corden trying to find his way as he heads to the studio. Completely unaware of where he is, he stumbles upon Sia who as it turns out is great with directions. Sia however, needs some help herself as she’s wearing her signature wig and can’t see Corden or the car.

Once settled in and on their way, the pair break out in song to Sia’s “Chandelier.” Of course Corden couldn’t resist asking the singer about her trademark look; which she explains she sports to maintain some shred of privacy.

“I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I sobered up, and I decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore, because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilizing in some way. So I thought, ‘What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery.”

The duo continues to flex their vocal muscles as they take on “Diamonds” and “Elastic Heart” before Corden blurts out “You believe in aliens.” Taken aback, Sia retorts “How did you know that?” to which Corden gives the most fitting response, “I know s— about you.”

Corden proceeds to don a matching wig and reveal that he really does know s— about the singer specifically about her double-jointed hands. Sia exclaims, “You found out the weirdest s— about me.” The car ride wouldn’t be complete without witnessing Sia balance and hold a dozen eggs on the back of her hands.

The pair close out their ride with a rendition of “Titanium” before arriving at their destination.
