The Late Late Show host James Corden’s apparently been planning for the winter holidays all year. Kicking off with Mariah Carey, Corden’s holiday treat for fans is an energetic celebrity-filled special Carpool Karaoke rendition of Carey’s version of “All I Want for Christmas.” Corden and Carey began the video with a little banter, and then slipped into the Christmas song.
Previous Carpool Karaoke passengers who appeared throughout the video and lent their voices to the popular holiday tune included Lady Gaga, Adele, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Elton John, Gwen Stefani, Selena Gomez, Chris Martin, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The video first appeared on the December 15, 2016 episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden and then made its way online for those of us who don’t stay up late to enjoy.
The special holiday Carpool Karaoke video came just a few days after James Corden debuted what’s likely to be the final full Carpool Karaoke video of the year. Bruno Mars had the honor of closing out 2016, joining Corden to sing tracks off his new album, 24K. Within two days of the video’s release, the Bruno Mars Carpool Karaoke video had been watched more than 17 million times.
