Finally, Carpool Karaoke is becoming an official series. We all knew that this would happen eventually, especially after the success of Spike's Lip Sync Karaoke (based on a segment that originated on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) and the recently announced Caraoke Showdown (that very well may be a ripoff of James Corden's idea). The only surprise is the network: Apple Music.
Carpool Karaoke, based on The Late Late Show with James Corden segment in which Corden sings the hits with various celebrities who are riding shotgun, will consist of 16 episodes. According to the press release, “In each episode, celebrities will ride along and sing along with the host (to be announced) as they visit places meaningful to the celebrity, sing tunes from their personal playlists and surprise fans who don”t expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over.”
A new episode will become available weekly but will be exclusive to Apple Music subscribers – but don't worry if you're not a member; the original segment will continue on Late Late Show.
