As I predicted, it looks like Adele’s ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ is going to be the most viewed video James Corden’s The Late Late Show video channel has seen. As I write this, the video has only been online for three hours and has already garnered more than 338,000 views, and those views are rising rapidly by the hour.
In fact, if I had to bet, I’d say Adele’s ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ is easily going to pass the just over 23 million views One Direction’s ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ has had since it was uploaded a month ago.
And no, that’s not surprising at all, as Adele’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ is fabulous.
It starts off with Corden picking Adele up somewhere in London, and having a quick chat about her new bob hair style. He is then beyond thrilled when Adele actually asks him for hair advice.
The pair then sing Adele’s ‘Hello’ and, yes, she’s note perfect as she always is. Then again, Corden isn’t bad either. So much so, Adele gets a wide-eyed look as she says, “That was amazing”.
Adele confesses too, towards the end of the song that, yes, that is actually her playing the drums on the track.
But tragedy strikes when Adele pours tea over her new coat although, no worries, she simply downs the entire mug in one long swig so she doesn’t spill it again. (And this is why everyone loves Adele. Because no matter how big of a star she becomes, she is always and absolutely herself — mistakes and all).
We find out more about how ‘real’ she is when she launches into a story about getting drunk sitting on her own in a restaurant a few nights before while waiting for a friend. So drunk she bought the meals for a family sitting next to her, and promised tickets to another family who couldn’t buy them for her Nashville show.
And no, I don’t want to spoil Adele’s ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ for you by telling you what happens all the way through, as it really is fabulous. The best ‘Carpool Karaoke’ James Corden has ever had.
But I will tell you you’re in for a real treat as both Adele and James do sing a superb version of a Spice Girls’ song.
