If you've yet to sample the delights of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke, we have two questions for you:

1. What have you been doing with your life?

2. Are you for the the best 12 minutes of your week?

The viral talk show segment has played host to some of the biggest names in the music business, and last night, The Foo Fighters finally got to hop onboard.

As usual, the band belted out some of their biggest hits including All My Life, Best Of You and Learn To Fly, but it was the impromptu detour that really caught the attention of viewers.

James brought the guys to a nearby Guitar Centre and challenged Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins to a mini drum-off, perform treating those in attendance to a rock n' roll cover of Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up.

We may have a new contender for best Carpool Karaoke of all time.

So, it's fair to say that Sean Spicer caused quite a stir at last night's Primetime Emmy Awards, but it was backstage photo with a certain late night talk show host that has Twitter users in uproar.

Appearing on stage during Stephen Colbert's opening monologue, the former White House Press Secretary divided viewers when he poked fun at his own claim that Donald Trump’s inauguration received the biggest crowds ever.

However, Sean wasn't the only one to receive criticism on the night.

After posing for a snap in which James Corden appears to kiss the former White House secretary on the cheek, social media users were less than impressed with the Late Late Show host. 

Some compared the interaction to the controversial moment fellow talk show star Jimmy Kimmel ruffled Donald Trump's hair during an interview last September.

“Corden makes Spicer look like a beacon of honour and sincerity. It’s like Kimmel ruffling Trump’s hair all over again: proper enablers”, one viewer wrote. 

Others took to Twitter to express their disappointment, with some even accusing the star of "normalising fascism."

If there's one thing James Corden does better than any other chatshow host on the planet, it's the musical numbers.

Whether it's Carpool Karaoke or impromptu singalongs, the British star is an absolute pro when it comes to showcasing his vocal range.

And yet despite this indisputable talent, Liam Payne decided to challenge James to a riff-off on a recent episode of The Late Late Show.

After hearing that James had dared suggest that boy bands were better than solo stars, the former One DIrection member chose to lay down the gauntlet, and James accepted.

From Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC to Wham and Hanson, these two really go for it, and to be fair, they nail it.

Ladies, we'll let the two lads take it from here…

As the world comes to terms with the latest in a string of horrendous terrorist attacks on European soil, James Corden has acknowledged the feeling which many struggle with at a time when terrorist attacks are becoming frighteningly more commonplace.

James began the most recent episode of The Late Late Show with a heartfelt acknowledgement of the terrifying scenes which played out in Barcelona yesterday afternoon.

"When we hear about London or Paris or Stockholm and now Barcelona, you can almost start to become numb to it, like this is becoming something normal and we don’t need to talk about it here on our show," he said.

"But we think we mustn’t allow it to become something that’s normal. We must talk about it so we remember how sad, horrific, and tragic these moments are," James insisted.

"To the people of Barcelona, I just want to add to the rest of the world's outpouring of love and give our thoughts. We are thinking about the victims and their families right now on what must be an unimaginable day of horror for them," he continued.

James explained that his role is to bring light and levity to a "world where it is becoming often too hard to find."

Take a look at this.

Talinda Bennington, widow of the late Chester Bennington, has thanked James Corden and producers for allowing the family to decide whether an episode of Carpool Karaoke featuring the Linkin Park singer will go to air.

The 41-year-old died by suicide at his Los Angeles home on July 20, just days before Linkin Park were due to embark on a North American tour.

The singer was also due to appear in an upcoming episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, but James Corden has said that Chester's family should decide whether it is shown or not.

Corden told the Associated Press: “We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled.

“We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don’t think there’s any other way we could deal with it. It’s a tragedy.”

Talinda then took to Twitter to thank the talk show host for his comments:

The first episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series was shown on Apple Music on Wednesday.

Let's all be honest, we loved Usher back in the day.

With songs like Yeah!, No Limit and DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love, we had many a jam session bopping around to his tunes.

But one thing we didn't know about Usher is just how sound he is.

As he joins James Corden in the latest instalment of Carpool Karaoke, the two get on like a house on fire.

And as well as singing along to his own songs, User and James save a person with a broken down car, and the lads even… dance!

This is definitely one of our favourite ones yet:

So, James Corden has never been shy about discussing his political views.

The Late Late Show host often uses his platform to speak about his dissatisfaction with the Trump administration and on Tuesday night he blasted the US President for his ignorant stance on the HIV/AIDS crisis.

Following the news that six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS resigned in protest of Trump's lack of interest, James took it upon himself to educate his viewers about the seriousness of the situation.

Speaking to his audience, both in studio and at home, James said: “He [Trump] has proposed changes to healthcare, which if they were to happen, would devastate all marginalised American's who are living with HIV and AIDS.”

“I looked up some stats today. More than 1.1 million people in the US live with HIV and AIDS and of those, nearly 60 per cent are unable to access life-saving medications”

“That's not to mention the 36.7 million people worldwide who live with HIV, of whom nearly 2 million are children under the age of 15.”

But, in true James Corden fashion, the British comedian has came up with quite a humorous solution for Trump's ignorance.

Explaining how the film Philadelphia inspired him to care about the disease, James suggested that it may do the same for Donald Trump.

“Maybe Donald Trump doesn't care because he's never seen Philadelphia. In fact I'm almost certain that's what it is.”

Convinced that Tom Hank's Oscar-winning performance would ignite something inside the president, James decided to send 297 copies of the 1993 film to his home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida.

Well played James, we just hope it works.

We're obsessed with Harry Styles, and his new album is currently in the lead to top the charts this week. 

The ex One Direction member is continuing his success by snagging a spot on the much loved series Carpool Karaoke with James Cordon.

We can't get enough of Carpool Karaoke these days, as James Corden'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 ridden shotgun with the British comedian.  

Now, a rather unexpected guest is joining James for a new episode.

None other than Victoria Beckham will be in the passenger seat for the upcoming series of Carpool Karaoke. 

While VB initially rose to fame thanks to her iconic place as Posh Spice in the Spice Girls, the mum-of-four has been focusing on her fashion pursuits for over a decade.

With her lack of musical accomplishments over the past few years, we definitely didn't expect to see her singing karaoke.

However, Posh is a massive star, so we're pretty excited to see her loosen up and sing a few songs with James.

We can't wait to hear her renditions of our favourite Spice Girls songs!

We've been waiting a while for this.

James Corden's Carpool Karaoke has been a huge hit since it first debuted on his American version of The Late Late Show.

The TV segment was such a smash that it got commissioned for an entire show by Apple… and now the trailer is finally here.

Featuring everyone's favourite prince, Will Smith will be one of the first celebs to join the series (he better sing the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), as well as Metallica, John Legend, Ariana Grande and Alicia Keys.

The trailer sees Will crashing a wedding (imagine!) and John Legend grooving with a gospel choir in the middle of a launderette. Standard.

All we know so far is that the series is "coming soon," but by the look of this clip, it's going to be class.

Of all the Kardashian sisters, Khloé is probably the most candid, so we've been waiting with bated breath for her to appear on James Corden's Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,

But, surprisingly enough, it wasn't actually Khloé who dropped the biggest secrets this time around.

After being asked to reveal who he considered the rudest celebrity, James admitted that our very own Pierce Brosnan was far from gentlemanly after bumping into him at a U2 concert.

After explaining that Pierce left the venue, James revealed that he and the people he was with attempted to move into that space before being removed by the Irish star.

"And literally, I've never felt anything like it. This arm went on here and just pushed me out of the way," James admitted.

Oh, and when Khloé decided to defend him? James was having none of it…

We know he can spit a rap in Drop The Mic and multitask in Carpool Karoke, but how would James Corden fare when faced with a real-life Tony Award-winner in a Broadway Riff-Off?

The answer to that is pretty damn well if his recent musical exchange with Neil Patrick Harris is anything to go by.

Going head to head with the much-loved How I Met Your Mother star, James reminded us that when it comes to musical theatre, he really knows his stuff.

Clocking up more than 1.3 million views in just over a day, James and Neil had YouTubers falling all over themselves as they tackled classic Broadway hits.

And we'll let the lads take it from here…
