Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is coming and now, we've got our first very star-studded look at the Apple Music show.
Nobody does “Carpool Karaoke” like James Corden – and Apple Music agrees. In case you hadn’t heard, the streaming service’s first foray into original programming is making the “The Late, Late Show” segment into a standalone series.
Since Corden is such an iconic part of the segment – and too busy with his own show to do the honors – the producers dec decided to have a rotating roster of stars doing the hosting honors. Corden of course makes some appearances, including singing "I Believe I Can Fly" with Will Smith in a helicopter, but that's just the tip of celebrity singing iceberg.
The other musicians that pop up in the clip include John Legend, Metallica, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, and Ariana Grande.
Some non-muscians also take their turn singing, including Taraji P. Henson, Chelsea Handler Seth Meyers, Michael Strahan, Shaquille O’Neal, John Cena and Jeff Gordon. An exact premiere date hasn't been announced. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
Each of the 16 episodes will have a different host.
- So far, Blake Shelton, John Legend and Alicia Keys (with a special appearance from Taraji P. Henson), Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane, Billy Eichner and Metallica and Chelsea Handler have signed on. Also, Will Smith is getting paired with Corden himself. You’ll be able to check out all 16 episodes of “Carpool Karaoke” when it debuts on Apple Music later this year.
