music news 11/02/2020

James Corden has had all sorts of music greats jump in his big SUV and drive around LA with him singing along to their best songs.

From Sir Paul McCartney to Madonna, Adele, P!nk, Ed Sheeran and so, so many more, James Corden has certainly met celebrities we would only ever dream of meeting!

But it turns out, his one guest he would love, love, LOVE to get onto his Carpool Karaoke segment will sadly never be able to.

The late-night host shared on the Oscars red carpet that it is his dream to team up with Queen's late frontman Freddie Mercury for the car sing-a-long.

"So one of my favorite things you do is Carpool Karaoke, and if you have anyone - besides me, of course - dead or alive to be in there with you, who would it be?" the red carpet host asked.

"Oh wow," Corden responded. "Yeah, I’ve always felt like Freddie Mercury would probably be the ultimate."

"He’s sort of made for that kind of thing," he said before adding that there are "so many people" alive that he’d still love sing with.
