You get CARPOOL KARAOKE, one of the most popular online series of all time!
AN ENGLISHMAN IN L.A.
The man who invented Carpool Karaoke is James Corden. Originally from Buckinghamshire in England, Corden started acting when he was a teenager, first in theatre and later in television and film. He became a successful actor, producer and television host. Then, in March 2015, he became the new host of the popular American talk show "The Late Late Show".
Corden wanted to create a new segment for the show. In 2011, he did a segment for a British television special in which he sang along to old Wham! songs with George Michael in a car. He wanted to sing along with other celebrities to other songs in a car. But every celebrity he asked to participate in the segment said : NO.
Then Mariah Carey, who was a big fan of George Michael and had seen the 2011 segment, said YES. The first Carpool Karaoke was created, and it was an enormous success. Since then, Corden has also done episodes of Carpool Karaoke with Justin Bieber, Elton John, Britney Spears, One Direction, Rod Steward, Bruno Mars, Take That...
Each segment is about 15 minutes long and is on The Late Late Show and on YouTube, where the series has had hundreds of millions of views. Adele's episode, for example, got about 100 million views in its first six months. In July 2016, Corden did an episode with First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House. It got more than 40 million views in its first month!
Carpool Karaoke is filmed in Los Angeles. The city is famous for having bad traffic, but it has special lanes on the freeway for cars with more than one person, to encourage people to carpool.
So next time you're driving in Los Angeles, look out for Corden with his famous friends!
