The new show is based on The Late Late Show's hit segment, in which host James Corden rides around Los Angeles singing with various musicians and other special guests. While Corden will appear in at least one episode alongside Will Smith – the pair fittingly howl "I Believe I Can Fly" in a helicopter – the show primarily pairs two celebrities together.
Among the highlights are Keys and John Legend singing "Fallin'," Grande and MacFarlane dueting "Suddenly Seymour" from Little Shop of Horrors and Billy Eichner trying to teach Metallica the lyrics to Rihanna's "Diamonds." Carpool Karaoke will also feature segments outside the car, with the clip teasing Legend bringing a gospel choir into a laundromat and Metallica singing "Enter Sandman" with workers in a grocery store.
The first season of Carpool Karaoke will feature 16 celebrity pairings. A release date for the show has yet to be announced.
