‘Carpool Karaoke’ Apple Music Spin-Off Series To Have 16 Different Guest Hosts
Ariana Grande will be jumping in the car.
A sizzle reel was shown at a panel in the US yesterday, as Deadline reports, that showed glimpses of Chelsea Handler, Seth MacFarlane, John Legend and Billy Eichner behind the wheel. Each host will take the reigns of a single episode in the 16-part series, which will be Apple Music’s first. James Corden will make an appearance in one episode.
But who will they all be paired up with? CBS’ Ben Winston revealed how 'The Late Late Show' had been receiving requests from movie stars to do ‘Carpool Karaoke’, hence the move to Apple Music to accommodate them. This will see Corden drive around with Will Smith, while Seth MacFarlane will ferry Ariana Grande from A to B.
Also featuring will be Alicia Keys paired with John Legend, and Metallica with Billy Eichner, the host of the really very good 'Billy on the Street'.
“There’s something about the intimacy of a car,” said Winston, who went on to speak about how that unique setting led to more unique interactions, to a connection, that just doesn’t happen in a TV studio.
