A trailer screened for press at Monday's (Jan. 9) TV critics press tour showed the host and Will Smith singing along to "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" backed by a full marching band.
As the first series on Apple Music, Corden says he has no idea whether the show will feature advertising breaks or not, but joked, "They're going to be advertising a lot of Samsung Galaxy Note 7s". "What we fell in love with was the idea of nearly doing 16 specials, because that's really what these end up being". Other pairings on the show will include musicians Alicia Keys and John Legend, along with Taraji P. Henson, star of the film "Hidden Figures" and TV's "Empire"; singer Ariana Grande and "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane; and TV host and comedian Chelsea Handler and singer Blake Shelton. Corden said in the roughly 300 episodes of the late night show, about 23 have featured carpool karaoke segments. "As we've gotten more and more momentum with various bookings, it's been fun to pair different people together and take advantage of all different relationships that are out there".
Executive producer Eric Pankowski told Variety that tons of nonmusical celebrities demanded to be put in the vehicle with Corden for the bit on the Late Late Show.

"It's a half hour show where you put two people together in an interview setting where they ask each other questions, they learn about each other's lives, and they sing in a auto", Winston told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour. This just became a wonderful platform to see these people in a such an intimate environment. Look for more on him when the series debuts.
That seems a bit heretical to the very Carpool Karaoke concept, but even celebrities need to stretch their legs and use the bathroom from time to time.
Episodes will be released weekly on the $10-a-month streaming music service, but a date has not been set yet. But that changed a year ago, when Spike announced its plans for Caraoke Showdown, which also combines cars and karaoke.
