James Corden Reveals Why 'Carpool Karaoke' Can't Happen Right Now

A sad day for fans of 'Carpool Karaoke'

We interrupt you regularly scheduled programming to deliver some sad and unfortunate news. To those Carpool Karaoke fans (us included) out there, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer before we get to see out favorite celebrities jam sesh in a car with Corden.

James spoke with fellow talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about the future of his popular Late Late Show segment, in which Corden drives around LA with celebs in the passenger seat, singing and chatting it up. The segment as well as his entire show has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think it will be a while before we're singing in a car with anybody," Corden explained. "We can't really think of a remote way to do it. It really does rely on two people being in close proximity, so that's alright. It's okay.”

Even though the answer is to be expected, it still sucks to hear. Our immediate and possibly over dramatic reaction is to get in our car (symbolically) and start crying. But we get it, safety first, always.

In true Corden fashion, he then turned the conversation to a more positive note, revealing that when he feels anxious and scared about the state of the world, he starts "to think about the day, whenever that may be, when it is safe to go out again and it's safe for you to go out and dance around your audience and it's safe for me to get in a car with someone."

"I think it's going to be the greatest boom of joy we've ever experienced," he concluded.

We cant wait for all the joy and future episodes to come. But for now we’ll just have to rewatch all the old ones. If you feel like doing the same, check out the playlist of episodes below.
