James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke television hit is not to be slept on.
With stars pulled from all over Hollywood, and even the White House, Corden has jammed from the driver’s seat with the best of them, such as master funkateer Bruno Mars, first lady Michelle Obama and soul crooness Adele.
Now, with his latest passenger seat guest on The Late Late Show With James Corden segment, Corden is jamming us back to the glorious ‘90s and early 2000s with one of the era’s most iconic dance, vocal and R&B talents, Usher.
Blasting some of Usher’s most notable throwbacks, the two hit play on tracks like “Yeah!” and “Caught Up.” Corden even hilariously spits Ludacris’s bars from the 2004 lead single verbatim, assisted by Usher, of course.
Usher even shares some unpopular knowledge on how he broke into dancing, which he says started innocently with his cousins when they’d break into some moves on the streets as a youth. Corden switched things up a little for the Atlanta crooner’s karaoke get-together during one of the segment’s highlight moments and pulled over for a swag tutorial and dance lessons from the 38-year-old himself.
The jam session took Corden and Usher through a few other LOL-worthy moments, like pulling up on Usher’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star to give it the shining treatment and help some folks push their broken-down car out of the street. They even slowed things down a bit with their live-from-the-front-seat rendition of Usher’s platinum-selling “Burn” single.
And did you know Usher is staying away from meat and transitioning to veganism? We guess now is a better time than ever to leg out on a dietary health-kick like that one.
