The moment has come, ladies.

After years of hoping Ed Sheeran and James Corden might team up for an episode of Carpool Karaoke, we can finally rest easy and prepare for one epic journey.

Speaking to Capital radio this week, the singer, who recently dropped new material, confirmed that a collaboration with the British host is officially in the works.

"I've been in touch with James Corden about this for three years because he wanted me to do the first one and I just wasn't around," Ed explained.

But, now?

"I can confirm that at some point this year I will be doing a carpool karaoke," Ed assured listeners.

That's all we needed to know, Ed!

We love James Corden's Carpool Karaoke more than ANYTHING else, and the latest one is so epic.

The wonderful Bruno Mars joined James for a 15 minute spin around Los Angeles. 

The Grammy Award winner sang a number of his major hits (Uptown funk gon' give it to ya), hitting some truly majestic high notes. 

James actually gave Bruno a run for his money, and even donned a silk ensemble to match Bruno's at one point… glorious. 

About eight minutes in, Bruno attempts to teach James how to seduce a woman, and it is absolutely HILARIOUS. 

All in all, this is one highly entertaining way to spend 15 minutes. 

WATCH WATCH WATCH! 

We can't get enough of Carpool Karaoke these days, as Jame's Cordon's star studded videos keep getting better and better.

From the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Lady Gaga and Michelle Obama, everyone who's anyone has rode shotgun with the British comedian. 

Now, the queen of Christmas Mariah Carey will be starring alongside James in a festive special edition of the video series. 

As well as the dulcet tones of Mariah, the video also features some of the year's best Carpool Karaoke guests, all contributing to what could be considered the ultimate rendition of All I Want For Christmas Is You. 

Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez,Adele and many more all chime in for the Christmas edition.

While we feel  #blessed to have been bestowed with this serenade of stars, we can't help but think how odd James must have looked, filming in October with a Christmas tree and presents adorning his car. 

It's safe to say that James Corden lands some smashers on Carpool Karaoke. From Adele, to One Direction and even Michelle Obama, we have loved watching every single one of them.

However, one person James doesn't seem too keen on having on the show is Robbie Williams.

The singer has revealed that he was a tad desperate to get a seat in James' car, but the American talk show host has been ignoring him.

Robbie told the Daily Star: "I suppose you have to be famous in America to do Carpool. I'm not famous there. I'm yet to tick that box.

"James hasn't got back to me about doing Carpool Karaoke yet. It does need to happen."

He has a point, we'd love to bring back some old school Robbie in the car!

We can't get enough of Carpool Karaoke these days, as Jame's Cordon's star studded videos keep getting better and better.

From the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Lady Gaga and Michelle Obama, everyone who's anyone has rode shotgun with the British comedian.  

This week, the LA carpool will feature none other than 24 Carat Magic singer Bruno Mars. 

Social media has been freaking out about the big reveal, since a sneak preview of the episode was uploaded to YouTube this morning. 

"I've been waiting decades for this!" commented one excited fan. 

While most fans are pumped to see the Treasure singer in all of his karaoke glory, some are calling for carpool dodger Beyonce to appear in the segment. 

While we'd love to see Queen Bey on the show, we're beyond thrilled with the prospect of seeing Bruno in action, after his amazing performance on last week's Victoria's Secret fashion show catwalk. 

From Michelle Obama to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, most stars fall all over themselves to take part in The Late Late Show's Carpool Karaoke segment.

And it looks like Madonna is no exception.

And while thousands of her Instagram followers are pumped at the idea of seeing the Queen of Pop duet with James Corden, not everyone is that impressed by the announcement.

Sharing a snap of herself with James on Instagram last night, Madonna wrote: "Riding around Manhattan with the Hunk of Burning Love" in a move which sent social media into a tailspin.

"Awesome! It's about time," gushed one of her followers, but not everyone is on the same page.

"This b*tch needs to retire" wrote one Instagram user while another added: "The most overrated popstar of all the time"

While the upload itself racked up 113,000 likes, many of The Late Late Show's followers wasted no time sharing their thoughts on Madge's imminent appearance, with another writing: "Terrible choice."

"Why she decided to do this right after Gaga? Isn't she jealous of Gaga? smh," added someone else on Twitter when the news broke.

Well, let's just see how it goes, shall we?

We're going to be honest here – when it came to Lady Gaga's Carpool Karaoke, we thought the New Yorker could go one of two ways.

She'd either do a Britney on the whole thing and fail to engage or she'd go hell for leather and blow us all out of the water, and thankfully for everyone it was most definitely the latter.

From giving it absolute socks to Bad Romance and re-enacting the phone call which nabbed her the Superbowl Half-Time Show to revealing she recently got her driving licence, it looks like Lady Gaga seemed pretty chill kicking it with James.

So chill, in fact, she even took control of the wheel for a while…

 

Nothing pleases us more than hearing about a new Carpool Karaoke line-up. 

The latest star to join James Corden in the car is none other than Lady Gaga… and we CAN'T WAIT! 

The 30-year-old songstress posted a picture to Instagram yesterday, where she announced that she had filmed the show with the British comedian.

James also tweeted about the show, telling his fans how excited he was for it's release. 

"Best day ever!!!! Can't wait for you all to see it!" James wrote, clearly delighted with himself.

We think this may be the best Carpool Karaoke EVER! 

 

For most people taking part in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke would be actual life goals.  But for Britney Spears it seems the experience wasn’t quite the dream we’d expect it to be.

While recounting her time in the car with James for an American radio station on Friday, the Toxic singer said that cruising around Los Angeles with the British entertainer – whose name she appeared to have forgotten – was “so awkward”.

The 34-year-old told KTU 103.5FM: “It was a little awkward, like, driving by grocery stores…People walk by and there are like 18 cameras around us.  This is just so awkward.”

 

 

So many more things on the way… #Glory is coming soon. Pre-order now!

According to Entertainment Tonight, Britney also described how The Late Late Show host “controlled the whole thing” before jokingly discussing how sick she was of hearing Baby One More Time and Oops!…I Did It Again on repeat.

But overall the mother of two did enjoy her time with James.  She said:  “It was really fun…The guy was just so incredibly sweet.”

“I had no idea he has kids, he's a teddy bear.  I was like, ‘I just want to hug you right now’.”

Britney received a fair bit of criticism online after the segment aired on Thursday as Twitter users suggested she had mimed the lyrics to her own songs.

One person tweeted the star saying: “Britney you knew this was a carpool karaoke right?  And not carpool snapchat lipsync?”

While another said: “Goes to Carpool Karaoke.  Concept is to sing along your own songs.  LIPSYNCS ANYWAY.  The one & only Britney Spears.”

Whether it felt awkward at the time or not, it sure looked like the celebrity pair were having fun reliving Britney’s glory days dressed in those famous grey and white school uniforms.

Look, we're as big a fan of Carpool Karaoke as the next person… unless that person is willing to kidnap James Corden in order to recreate the segment, that is.

And then we're officially out.

The Late Late Show's super-popular music segment has gained a global following, and it looks like some people will do anything – even break the law – for their 15 minutes with the king of the carpool.

Speaking to The Wrap, the 37-year-old British star explained that while at home in London, he was accosted by a group of teenagers who forced him to take part in their own British version of the segment.

"I was crossing the street in London a few weeks ago and there were these four kids," he explained. "They were like 18, 19. They sort of forced me to get in the car."

Having clearly ignored everything he was taught about stranger danger as a child, James went with it, and ended up having an impromptu Carpool Karaoke session with a group of randomers.

"They all had their camera phones out and we were just singing along to the radio. I was like, 'Am I being kidnapped?" he recalled.

Not exactly James, but not far off.

If you – like millions others – divide your week between watching re-runs of Carpool Karaoke and waiting for the next instalment, you'll be PUMPED to learn that a standalone series of the uber popular Late Late Show segment is on the way!

According to NME, producers of The Late Late Show have partnered up with Apple Music, and will soon be treating the public to 16 episodes of Carpool Karaoke – with one expected to debut in the not too distant future!

Commenting on the news, Late Late Show producer, Ben Winston, said: "We couldn't be more excited to be partnering with Apple Music on this exciting new series of Carpool Karaoke."

"The joy of Carpool is both the intimacy it creates, while seeing the love our passengers have for music," he added. "Where better to showcase that than with Apple Music?"

"We love music, and Carpool Karaoke celebrates it in a fun and unique way that is a hit with audiences of all age," said Eddie Cue of Apple.

With 16 new instalments of the show set to stream weekly, Eddie added: "It's a perfect fit for Apple Music – bringing subscribers exclusive access to their favourite artists and celebrities who come along for the ride."

Unfortunately for James Corden fans, the much-loved British star will not be taking the wheel in this series, with a new host yet to be announced.

When The Late Late Show teased viewers with a sneak peek of this week's Carpool Karaoke, we all knew we were in for a serious treat, but NOTHING could have prepared us for the wonder that was the White House edition.

Maybe it's because she hadn't rode shotgun in over seven years, but the First Lady of the United States really brought her A-game when it came to cruising with Corden.

From Sign, Sealed, Delivered to Single Ladies, Michelle Obama did not hold back, and we are fan-girling all over ourselves here at SHEmazing! HQ this morning.

Oh, and just when we thought it couldn't get any better, Missy Elliott rocked up…
