Happy birthday, James Corden! The beloved Late Late Show host turns 38 years old today, and it’s sad to think there was ever a time where we weren’t blessed by his hilarious TV segment Carpool Karaoke.
Whether he’s shaking it off with Selena Gomez or belting out Hamilton with the creator himself, Mr. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Corden always brings out the best in his superstar passengers, making us laugh out loud in the process. Between his epic falsetto and incredible ability to simultaneously dance, sing, and drive, we’re always impressed by this Tony Award-winner and late night host.
Clearly, we aren’t the only ones, as his Carpool Karaoke segments often go viral online, and Apple Music even picked up the segment to turn it into an unscripted TV series. In honor of his birthday, we’ve rounded up our 7 favorite clips. Watch them below, and tune into The Late Late Show on Aug. 25 when Britney Spears takes her turn in the passenger seat.
