Riding in Cars with Voice
According to the host of The Late Late Show with James Corden, “we always thought there was something very joyful about someone very, very famous singing their songs in an ordinary situation. We just had this idea: Los Angeles, traffic, the carpool lane – maybe this is something we could pull off.”
And from that seed of an idea came a well-loved TV and pop culture phenomenon known as the Carpool Karaoke. Among its most viral videos are ones featuring former First Lady Michelle Obama with Missy Elliott, and the one with Adele which so far holds the highest number of YouTube views for the late night program. Last year, the TV program won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special.
The Carpool Karaoke Megamix video features artists like Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Rod Stewart, Jason Derulo, Sia, former First Lady Michelle Obama, Adele, Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Missy Elliott, Red Hot Chili Peppers, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, One Direction, Demi Lovato, Chris Martin, Bruno Mars and Madonna, among others.
Remixed with Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling”, everybody sings along to a mash-up of popular tunes such as “Sweet Escape”, “Bad Romance”, “Jenny from the Block”, “Diamonds”, “Single Ladies”, “Wannabee”, “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself”, “Sorry”, “Hollaback Girl”, “Adventure of A Lifetime”, “Music”, “24K Magic”, and more.
