Adele recently helped take Late Night With James Corden‘s “Carpool Karaoke” feature to charismatic new heights. Her segment ended up being one of the most viral late-night clips in years. Subsequently, Chris Martin popped in for his own session while pretending to catch a ride to the Super Bowl, where he played second (and third) fiddle to Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
Following the Super Bowl, Corden aired an episode that featured him hopping into a car with Elton John. Well, it’s not every day that one does karaoke with a legend, so Corden was ecstatic for the duration. Likewise, Elton was quite the sport for an artist who’s so rock solid that no promotion is necessary. Yet these two guys sang greatest hits while chatting about Elton’s musical roots and tendency towards excess. Fun was had by all.
