There might be a person in this world who wouldn’t turn on the radio and spill some lyrics of his favourite songs while travelling in a car. Common.. like who doesn’t ? The host of THE LATE LATE SHOW, James Corden took this whole singing in the car to an ultimate gala affair with his Carpool Karaoke session segment of the show. Everybody has watched it, heard of it and certainly enjoyed it. If not.. What is wrong with you man? Each Tuesday, this British talk show host hit us with an ultimate after party karaoke video with one of the biggest celebrities on the planet, in which they drive around and have a bit of sing-song. Carpool Karaoke reveals how talented these singers REALLY are . And who uses technology for voice enhancements and who uses their vocal chords !
Today we are breaking down which stars what we felt sang best with James Corden and the ones who failed to live up to our expectations ! Let’s hit it..
FINEST VIDEOS TILL NOW
Tracklist: ‘Hello’, ‘Someone Like You’, ‘Wannabe’, ‘All I Ask’, ‘Monster’, ‘Rolling In The Deep’
We gotta have to start with Adele. She is indeed the most charismatic, genuine and hilarious celebrity on the show until now. She won over everybody’s heart with her breathtaking and miraculous voice while belting out some of her greatest classics ever. And this wasn’t even the best part. It was when she showed-off her raping skills on the Nicki Minaj song with the most wondrous expressions. She totally nailed it. And the lady even tickled our funny bone with her getting straight up drunk story and downing the whole tea.
2. Lady Gaga
Tracklist: ‘Perfect Illusion’, ‘Bad Romance’, ‘Edge of Glory’, ‘Born This Way’, ‘Liquid Dreams’, ‘Poker Face’, ‘Million Reasons’
Lady Gaga was the most recent guest on the show and it would be right to say that she’s got a bunch of straight out melody tunes in her back pocket. Like seriously, she definitely got us with her amazing singing and hand moves while harmonising her classics and tracks from her new album, “Joanne”. And yes she swears within the first couple of seconds of the video. Her driving license story made us laugh out loud. She even take over the wheels and it got rough. And James wore Gaga’s some of the most iconic outfits. Even the meat dress !
3. Justin Bieber
Tracklist: ‘Baby’, ‘Boyfriend’, ‘Where Are Ü Now’, ‘The End Of The Road’ ‘Never Say Never’, ‘What Do You Mean’, ‘Stronger’, ‘Ironic’, ‘Sorry’
Justin Bieber is the only celebrity who has done more than 1 carpool karaoke sessions and honestly we just can’t get enough of him. He is probably James’s favourite star. Justin has sung his biggest hits ever starting from Baby, the most controversial yet adorable and he proudly admits: “It’s got the most dislikes on the internet” to Sorry. We even got a little insight on his lifestyle when he tells that he gets so many Calvin Klein pants that he only wears a pair once and chuck them. And the best moment was Justin shielding James from the paparazzi, “he lives his life in a fishbowl, dude ! “
4. One direction
Tracklist: ‘What Makes You Beautiful’, ‘Story Of My Life’, ‘Best Song Ever’, ‘No Control’, ‘Perfect’, ‘Drag Me Down’
There is a saying that the more the merrier and it certainly got proved when the four stars of 1D joined James for a ride. You just know it’s gonna be amazing. Louis confessed a funny and crazy story of a woman who brought milk to his house when he tweeted that he couldn’t have a cup. The one directioners genuinely care for their stars. James even made them do a dance routine choreography on No Control’, complete with denim shirts remembering the good old days of earlier boy bands. James even does an incredible rap in the middle of Drag Me Down.
Tracklist: ‘Chandelier’, ‘Diamonds’, ‘Elastic Heart’, ‘Alive’, ‘Titanium’
The video couldn’t have a better start where Sia has to be guided into the car as she just couldn’t see anything because of her wig.They continue on singing some of the biggest songs she’s performed and written.James even try to learn her melody hooks, her ability to hit the high notes but you know it’s like her trademark, no one can copy that. Sia’s conspiracy theory of Aliens did freaked him a little bit though. She even showed off her weirdest talent of being able to carry a dozen eggs on the backs of her hands. Insane ! right ?
6. Gwen Stefani
Tracklist: ‘Don’t Speak’, ‘The Sweet Escape’, ‘Used To Love You’, ‘Rich Girl’, ‘Hollaback Girl’, ‘We Are The Champions’
James describes Gwen as a country music singer who happens to be an absolute hunk, going back in time and we couldn’t agree more. The singer is absolutely getting younger with time. Just look at her ! They continue on singing her amazing classics. Gwen expresses her love for Emojis and copy a few of them but was surprised to know that the eggplant emoji means something else altogether. You know what we are talking. And then George Clooney and Julia Roberts also joins them and they singalong to Hollaback girl. It was the best to watch.
7. Jennifer Lopez
Tracklist: ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’, ‘Booty’, ‘Jenny from the Block’, ‘Locked Out of Heaven’, ‘Qué Hiciste’, ‘On the Floor
This carpool karaoke session should be written down in the history. There have been some lingering doubts over her singing but she definitely got rid of all of them and proved how amazing of a singer she is. And then the talk about her booty being insured. Nope, it hasn’t been insured. She teaches him ridiculous music video dancing. She then sings to him in Spanish with so much passion that left James apologising on behalf of all men. The best part was when James got all excited about all the famous folks on J-Lo’s phone and texted Leonardo DiCaprio. And he even got a reply from Leo.
8. Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas
Tracklist: ‘Heart Attack’, ‘Chains’, ‘Stone Cold’, ‘Cake By The Ocean’, ‘Close’, ‘Jealous’, ‘Confident’
You know it was the best thing to bring The BFFs Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato who this year celebrated their 10th year of friendship for carpool Karaoke. BffGoals right there. And then Demi spills out some juicy details of Nick’s dating life getting him mildly uncomfortable. But it’s all cool. And then the talk about the purity ring. Nick told a crazy fan story and the time he was tied up in chains in a gay club. Ahem ! The whole session was no less than a party. And then they took it to streets and even made a few dollars on the sidewalk.
Tracklist: ‘Same Old Love’, ‘Come And Get It’, ‘Hands To Myself’, ‘Kill Em With Kindness’, ‘Love You Like A Love Song’, ‘Shake It Off’
We definitely feel kind of bad for putting Selena so far down. Her music is great and we expected a lot more humour and vocals from her. But in comparison to other videos this is one of the few Carpool Karaokes that has failed to live up to our expectations. But there were some great moments when they rode on a terrifying roller coaster and when they even took ginger shots.
Tracklist: ‘Oops! I Did It Again’, ‘Womaniser’, ‘Make Me…’, ‘Toxic’, Baby One More Time’
Britney is one of the greatest singer Hollywood possess. But we can’t ignore there have been a few times when she is speculated to lip sync and mime to the songs while on stage. So, we felt that it was the perfect time for her to get rid of these allegations and astonish everybody with her many utter tunes and amazing voice. But it didn’t happen. She certainly did sing to a few of her classics of all time. There was a lot more expected from this star though.
