Adele, arguably the biggest name in music right now, and James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, are are going to be singing karaoke on Wednesday night’s edition of Carpool Karaoke, reports the Huffington Post.
James appears to be waiting in the car, outside Adele’s home. “Hello, it’s me,” Corden says into a phone, an obvious reference to Adele’s smash hit “Hello” while waiting to pick the singer up. “I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet.”
During their karaoke joyride, Adele and James sing “Hello,” “Rolling in the Deep,” and manage to have time to discuss how they take care of their hair as well as going to the gym. The “Rumor Has It” singer reveals that she has cut off her beautiful locks, and while Corden seems to really love it, Adele already misses her old style.
“What I like is that you’re coming to me for this advice,” he quips as Adele breaks out into laughter.
After doing a rendition of Adele’s “Hello,” they begin another duet, this time belting out “Rolling In The Deep.” Adele takes care of the verses while Corden impressively provides the backup vocals.
Adele, from the looks of this short teaser, seems to have some pretty solid comedic timing. It’s safe to assume that Adele and Karaoke are going to be trending all over the internet and facebook come Wednesday when the full clip is released for everyone to enjoy.
“Who doesn’t want Adele on their show? There isn’t a show in the world that isn’t trying to book her,” James Corden says, after filming. The two have known each other for a while.
“I’ve known her a very long time,” he says. “We both did our first-ever TV show in the U.K. together. It was a talk show. It never worked … And I was a guest and she was singing. And neither of us had really gone on telly before.”
Adele is still breaking all kinds of records with the release of her latest album 25. It recently spent its seventh week being at the top of the Billboard 200. Adele’s 25 earned 194,000 equivalent album units last week, according to Nielsen Music. 164,000 of those units were in pure album sales.
Carpool Karaoke with Adele will premiere on The Late Late Show on Wednesday, January 13.
