As Britney Spears prepares to showcase her talents in what will surely be an epic segment of "Carpool Karaoke," a UK X-Factor judge is insisting she isn't even talented, to begin with

Happy 38th birthday to The Late Late Show host!

James Corden, who took over The Late Late Show hosting duties just last year, has quickly become a late night TV favorite with his viral Carpool Karaoke videos.

The popular car sing-along sessions, which have recruited a list of all-star guests like Mariah Carey, Sia, and first lady Michelle Obama, are his winning segment and each one an Internet hit.

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

Because the only thing better than hearing Gwen Stefani belt out “Hollaback Girl” is seeing George Clooney and Julia Roberts try to sing it with her. (Cue George’s dad dancing in the backseat).

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

This Carpool Karaoke was a true gift to all theater nerds. James Corden also showed us that he could make a great replacement for Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton, which we definitely would support.

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

With moments like J.Lo belting “Jenny From the Block” and James Corden stealing her phone to text Leonardo DiCaprio “Hey baby,” this carpool karaoke is easily one of the best.

2. Adele

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 Minajs “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.
