Before the Gavin and Stacey actor left The Late Late Show, James Corden and Adele shared an emotional Carpool Karaoke, bringing them to tears. It featured everything spectators could have wanted, including wonderful performances of well-known songs, amazing anecdotes, and laughs.
The long-running CBS talk show segment, which generally involves Corden “driving to work” with the assistance of various musicians as they joyfully sing along to a catalog of tracks, has grown to become one of the most watched things on television over the years, not just in the United States but worldwide.
But this time was different since Adele was behind the wheel.
What Happened in The Last Carpool Karaoke?
This happened before the final-ever broadcast of The Late Late Show. It was about to air on CBS in the US on Thursday, 27 April. The media interviewed the 16-time Grammy Award-winning musician outside James Corden’s home.
The two talked about their time in the US. Before Adele decided that crashing some cymbals together would be the ideal way to wake up the host as their final voyage began.
James Corden expressed his excitement and fear while reflecting on his experience on The Late Late Show. It’s been eight insane years, I don’t know. I can’t recall life before this place, but it feels like it has already passed.
The first song on the playlist for the final Carpool Karaoke was a familiar one for Adele and James as it closed out their first drive together in 2016. She then performed an outstanding version of Barbra Streisand’s “Don’t Rain On My Parade” before declaring her hatred for musicals. Rolling in the Deep was then played to start the pair’s journey.
The featured songs are Hometown Glory, Love Is A Game, and I Drink Wine. Adele discussed writing I Drink Wine after an intense six-hour talk with James Corden during the journey.
The two continued their conversation by talking about their close connection and the challenges they had both faced, including Adele’s divorce from Simon Konecki.
Words From Adele
Adele said, “The year before that, I left Simon and things like that, but you and Jules and the children were so crucial in looking after me. This was the first year I felt I had to hold myself responsible for being an adult.
Then, a few weeks later, I returned to the studio. And further wrote this after reflecting on how insecure I felt around you. It’s because you were always the same—since I was maybe 21.
I recall the song that was on my phone. And I forwarded it to you. You did comment, “That’s exactly how I was feeling,” and I do recall hearing that.
Why is James Cordon Leaving The Late Late Show?
The 44-year-old’s decision to leave was by his desire to return to his native England and be nearer to his friends and family. Since beginning his work on the CBS talk programme in 2015, Corden has resided in the US.
“I’ll miss everything, I think I overlooked how many friends I make doing this. I’m going to miss Los Angeles because I love it so much more than anything else. I’m also going to miss going to work every day with my pals. And it’s like a family,” James Corden stated from the passenger seat during the final-ever Carpool Karaoke.
