James Corden is proving to be among the most entertaining late night comedians, joining the renowned ranks of hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers. Everything the British Late Late Show host seems to do on his show is hilarious, from his amusing segment “Crosswalk the Musical” to interviewing and conversing with celebrities. However, Corden’s most entertaining and popular act has got to be “Carpool Karaoke.” It’s genius. You’ve probably at least seen one of these recurring videos, but if not here’s what usually happens: Corden is always in the driver’s seat, most of the time mentioning that he’s running late to work and then the camera suddenly pans to display the passenger seat, which is usually inhabited by an extremely famous person.
These videos have gone viral multiple times. His upcoming “Carpool Karaoke” segment is highly-anticipated as he has managed to snag Michelle Obama for a ride. As he is about to release another video that’s sure to go viral, here are Corden’s most successful “Carpool Karaoke” videos of all time.
5. Jennifer Lopez
Jenny From the Block killed it on “Carpool Karaoke” back in March 2016. It’s no surprise that this video has over 45 million views on YouTube. It’s filled with everyone’s favorite J.Lo throwbacks, featuring songs “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” and “On the Floor” among many others. The episode also includes Lopez casually sending a prank text to Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s safe to say the video is filled with jaw-dropping vocals and plenty of laughs.
While Sia doesn’t reveal her face in this addition of “Carpool Karaoke,” the episode has managed to get more than 53 million views on YouTube for this segment. Corden randomly picks her up on the side of the road where she then can’t find her way to the car because of her huge wig blocking her vision. Besides the laughs, Sia and James slay the karaoke game with their renditions of “Chandelier” and “Diamonds.”
3. One Direction
While we are all still in mourning from the official break-up of One Direction, thankfully there is still and always will be their episode of “Carpool Karaoke.” This video will help us reminisce about the good ole’ days. It is post-Zayn, but we can all still enjoy them singing their first hit, the classic “What Makes You Beautiful” in this YouTube video that has accumulated over 75 million hits.
2. Justin Bieber
This list wouldn’t be complete without an appearance from the Biebs, of course. Yes, this video has Justin Bieber singing along to his early hit “Baby,” and it managed to get over 85 million views on YouTube. In between dancing and singing/screaming James asks Bieber some hilarious questions as they grab McDonald’s.
I think it’s no surprise that Adele‘s appearance is the best addition of “Carpool Karaoke” as well as the most viewed video with a whopping 116,919,725 hits on Youtube. Not only does Adele kill it on “Hello” but she also surprises everyone as she raps Nicki Minaj‘s song “Monster” flawlessly.
