Singing with a comedic edge

Fun with ‘Carpool Karaoke’

  ‘Carpool Karaoke’ is a fan favorite session on The Late Late Show hosted by James Corden. It is popular with many people due to its upbeat vibes and humorous content from famous celebrities.

  James Corden has done ‘Carpool Karaoke’ starring many celebrity singers, such as Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Carrie Underwood, and others.

  “My favorite ‘Carpool Karaoke’ episode was starring Harry Styles, because you can see how much he’s changed and evolved into a solo artist when you compare his episode to the episode starring One Direction,” said Morgan Ashton, Freedom High School senior. In the episode, Styles and Corden recreated movie scenes and sang Styles’ original songs. They also sang covers of popular songs, making it more interesting to watch.

  In the beginning of the episodes, it is common for James to make a phone call before the guest comes into the car, but sometimes it is a little too scripted and should be changed to make it more interesting.

  Corden gives the show a comedic edge. He asks great questions and knows what to do when there’s a break in conversation to keep it moving.

  Although ‘Carpool Karaoke’ has a lot of great episodes, not all of them are the best they can be. ‘Carpool Karaoke’ was cancelled for some time due to lack of entertainment. It started back up with an upward slope of popularity when bigger teen celebrities were on.

  While many of the most popular celebrities are on the show and participate in ‘Carpool Karaoke’ sessions, some celebrities have not been on.

  “I think Taylor Swift should be on next because it would interesting to see her sing her old songs with her new image and reputation,” Says Ashton.

 ‘Carpool Karaoke’ episodes are super entertaining to watch when you have some down time because people get to see more of their favorite artists being themselves and joking around. James Corden is hilarious and always keeps the show flowing and entertaining.
