James Corden took over “The Late Late Show” from Craig Ferguson. He has since carved out an extremely large following of loyal viewers in that short period of time. He has also been able to book some of the biggest stars in the world of entertainment who never appeared on the show when Ferguson was at the helm. Corden has received the largest amount of notoriety for his carpool karaoke segments. In case you have been living in a cave, carpool karaoke involves Corden and a celebrity guest sitting in a car and singing along to a famous song. This simple concept has become ridiculously popular. In fact, videos of the various carpool karaoke segments have been viewed literally millions of times on YouTube. It has become Corden’s signature bit in much the same was that David Letterman had his top 10 lists and Johnny Carson performed Carnac the Magnificent.
Corden pulled out all of the stops for a recent carpool karaoke segment that had a Christmas theme. Chris Martin of Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey, Elton John and Adele joined Corden for a rendition of “All I Want for Christmas.” The video has already become one of the most viewed videos in the history of the bit. Corden has been asked to explain why this particular bit has connected so well with millions of people. He believes that people like to see big stars just having fun and not being asked boring questions about the projects they are promoting.
