The segment opens with the Emmy-winning talk show host behind the wheel wearing a festive holiday sweater. Michael Bublé magically “appears” to fill the empty passenger seat, wearing his own cheery read-and-white Christmas sweater.
A rotating star-studded lineup of Corden’s famous 2018 Carpool guests follow as they all sing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” in a seamlessly edited and sensational musical mashup. Smiles abound as Sir Paul McCartney, Christina Aguilera, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Barbra Streisand, Migos, Cardi B and Adam Levine sing the holiday classic with Corden.
Bublé appeared on Carpool Karaoke just ahead of the 2018 Stand Up to Cancer special. He shared the emotional story of his young son’s battle and recovery from cancer. He was also promoting his chart-topping new album Love. Bublé included a sentimental cover of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home” on his 2011 Billboard 200 No. 1 holiday-themed album Christmas. Paul McCartney's Carpool segment may be the most remarkable as Macca led Corden through the streets of Liverpool and gave him a personal tour of his childhood home.
Fans look forward to Corden’s gleeful Christmas Carpool segment each year. This year’s might be particularly epic, having living music legends Paul McCartney and Barbra Streisand in the merry mix. The clip is a perfect spirit booster heading into the holiday weekend. So, kick back, crank it up and revel in the resounding Christmas Carpool cheer!
