Happy Birthday James Corden! Here Are His 10 Best Carpool Karaoke Rides
Happy 38th birthday to The Late Late Show host!
To celebrate the always charming and vocally talented host’s birthday, we’ve ranked his 10 best Carpool Karaoke videos to date:
10. Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer Hudson flawlessly sings her drive thru order and gives us a much-needed Dreamgirls throwback in this Carpool Karaoke session, leaving us forever wishing that that we sounded like Jennifer Hudson when we sang in the car.
9. Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas
The best moment of this Carpool Karaoke is not the trio’s impromptu street performance, but Demi Lovato’s shameless tell-all of Nick Jonas’s Disney dating past: “Miley, and then back with Selena, and then back with Miley.” As always, thank you for your honesty Demi.
8. Gwen Stefani
7. One Direction
James Corden’s boy band choreography and matching outfits for “No Control” was surprisingly so much fun to watch. (An important observation: Zayn’s absence conveniently solved potential car seating issues.)
6. Broadway Carpool Karaoke
5. Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder reminded us all of his awesome sense of humor, especially when he facetimed his friends to confirm that he was in fact being driven by James Corden, because “all English guys sound alike.” And of course, watching Stevie sing his classics is something that will put a smile on one’s face.
4. Justin Bieber
James Corden’s first Carpool Karaoke session with Justin Bieber helped put Carpool Karaoke and The Late Late Show on the map. It is also made Bieber seem like an extremely likable dude, which is a rare and praiseworthy feat in itself.
3. Jennifer Lopez
This Carpool Karaoke is the gift that just keeps on giving: James Corden and Adele perfectly harmonizing “Hello,” Adele’s meme-worthy facial expressions while singing “Wannabe,” and then of course, Adele casually rapping Nicki Minaj’s “Monster.”
1. Michelle Obama
The best part of this amazing Carpool Karaoke? When James Corden asks if President Obama is currently in the Oval Office, and Michelle Obama answers with, “He better be, that’s where he said he was.” And thus it was confirmed that Michelle Obama is the most relatable First Lady ever.
