Selena Gomez Joins James Corden in Newest Carpool Karaoke
There’s no denying that America has fallen in love with James Corden (of The Late Late Show) and his Carpool Karaoke segments. Really—what’s not to love about a goofy, talented, and British man singing along with some of the world’s most famous musicians? I mean, the expressions on their faces when they realize that Corden—who is a classically trained singer—can actually sing extremely well is a reason to watch this segment all on its own.
For this week’s segment, Corden was joined by Selena Gomez on his way to work. As you might expect, the car ride was filled with all kinds of shenanigans and started off with the two singing along to Gomez’s hit, “Same Old Love” after Corden asks his signature, “Do you care if we listen to some music?” question. Corden even got into the song by doing impersonating the background, slightly muffled bit by covering his mouth with his hand.
Next, Selena suggests that James has some fun before going to work, since he has a big show to do later that night. After this suggestion, the duo somehow ends up taking a detour, adding a big twist to the Carpool Karaoke’s typical format.
“How?” do you ask? Well, they end up on a roller coaster. And they’re not just riding said roller coaster—they’re singing along to Gomez’s “Come & Get It”. As the roller coaster ascends, you can tell James is getting a bit nervous—something that becomes even more apparent as his screams reach the pitch typically heard from the mouths of little girls and pre-pubescent boys.
Selena, on the other hand, appears to be having the time of her life as James cowers.
Eventually, they end up back in Corden’s car, which is probably a good thing because he was looking a bit sick towards the end of that roller coaster ride.
After rocking out to Selena’s “Hands to Myself,” they then discuss Selena’s love of taking ginger shots in the morning to keep herself from getting sick. So, they of course decide to take some ginger shots together.
And Corden understandably has a reaction akin to one who is dying on the inside.
They finally end up at a McDonalds and Corden tells Gomez that her lyrics are on some of the fast food chain’s cups. So, of course, after suitably exciting the workers at the drive-thru, the two had to get the special cups with “Love You Like A Love Song” on them—and then sing that song.
After they’re finished singing “Love You Like A Love Song,” the two then discuss Selena’s prominent standing in Taylor Swift’s “squad,” during which Corden seeks an invite into one of the squad’s hangout sessions. They then go on to sing Swift’s “Shake It Off,” which leads to plenty of car dancing that is sure to entertain anyone.
