Our wish list for musical guests on potential UK version.
So apparently, James Corden might be bringing his much-loved 'Late Late Show' to the UK, which means a very different calibre of guests for his legendary Carpool Karaoke. He may have his own wish list of potential guests for a UK version, but so do we.
James Corden to bring Carpool Karaoke to the UK?
It isn't like he's never had Brits on the segment before, but we think the fact that One Direction, Chris Martin, Adele and Elton John have been amongst some of the most popular Carpool Karaoke videos is reason enough to bring it to the nation fully. 'We do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK', he told the Radio Times. It seems only right, given that the 'Late Late Show' skit originated from a 2011 Red Nose Day clip featuring the late George Michael.

We're sure Donald Trump had it coming.
Celebrities are wistfully remembering what a laugh Donald Trump used to be before he became President of the United States. James Corden in particular remembers 'spanking' him during a Broadway show - that was only five years ago and yet it's a far cry from what you'd expect of him now.
James Corden got to spank Donald Trump
While interviewing 'Scandal' star Kerry Washington and 'Saturday Night Live' star Alec Baldwin (best known in the current climate for his Donald Trump impersonations on the show) on 'The Late Late Show', James Corden reflected on their previous encounters with the thin-skinned President.

Talk show hosts blast Donald Trump's latest series of memorable quotes.

He and James Corden had an epic Queen Frontman Battle.
If anyone in the world was still in any doubt that Adam Lambert is the perfect frontman for Queen, his skit with James Corden on 'The Late Late Show' should settle it for you. Because this week Adam and James had a brilliant sass-fuelled Front Man Battle.
Adam Lambert and James Corden go 'head to head'
On 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' last night (February 2nd 2017), James made the mistake in getting a little cocky about his favourite band of all time and its current frontman, Adam Lambert. 'I'm not saying I'd be a better frontman than him, I'm just saying I think I'd be a better frontman than him', said James. 'That's all I'm saying.'
