Wow! The hottest concerts in music these days are coming from the front seat of James Corden’s car! ‘The Late Late Show’ has snagged yet another superstar in Elton John as his latest mega-star passenger for a post-Super Bowl version of ‘Carpool Karaoke.’
So EPIC!!! James Corden, 37, knew he’d have a HUGE spillover audience on CBS that were sticking around following Super Bowl 50, and he had the ultimate get by having Sir Elton John, 68, ride along as his passenger on the The Late Late Show‘s always entertaining “Carpool Karaoke.” We absolutely love the segment and so do musicians, as the lovable and vocally talented host has managed to get easily snag superstars like Justin Bieber, One Direction and even Adele to gladly play along. We were treated to an eight minute version of the sketch, but be sure to go online for the full version!
The legendary Rocketman was looking pretty fly in a bright blue blazer and matching round sunglasses. He hopped in James’ car and the two got right down to belting out his massive collection of hits, first turning on the radio to find his classic “Your Song,” oh my God his voice still is so amazing. They then hit up “I’m Still Standing” before donning some of Elton’s formerly crazy outfit styles, with Elton in a rainbow feather boa and crazy goofly eyes glasses to sing “Crocadile Rock.” SO classic!
During the banter portion Elton made the stunning revelation that he doesn’t have a phone and that “There’s usually a security person with a phone.” But he’s totally not out of touch, noting ” I have an i-Pad. ” Well thank goodness for that news before the two flowed right into “Tiny Dancer.”
Elton then got mushy, talking about how much his two sons have changed his life, before the pair got into an impassioned version of “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me,” in which James even sang in harmony. Get Elton’s Wonderful Crazy Night by clicking right here.
Since James’ show was jam-packed with so many famous guests, he didn’t play the complete version of Elton’s 13 minute Carpool Karaoke in its entirety, so make sure you hit up his youtube page to see the all of the amazing songs!
