Carpool karaoke has been one of the funniest sketches in recent times. Now, after months of teasing us, it seems that Ed Sheeran will finally be in it. Both, host James Corden and Ed Sheeran have finally put it together and will give the people what they want.
Sheeran’s participation it’s a part of the “Late Late London” special, as Corden has called it. He will be broadcasting from his native city and will count with an A-list of guest for the special episodes.
Ed Sheeran has finally joined Corden
The participation of Sheeran has been long awaited since the stars have been teasing us with the idea since January. But Ed has said he want’s to go beyond the classic format and do something bold that reveals more of him. “I know the whole thing is singing to your tune, but I think I’d feel a bit awkward singing to my song (…) I want to put on something really awkward and dirty, like Biggie’s song ‘Big Booty Hoes,’ or something like that and just hear James Corden sing along to that”.
The English musician and songwriter will now join a selective group of artists who have done the segment with James. Some of his highly regarded British pairs include Harry Styles and Adele. Ed Sheeran will still be expected to sing some of his hits, despite feeling odd about it, like “Castle On The Hill” and “Sing” when he takes part in Carpool Karaoke.

There is an “all-star line-up” that will be featured on the show’s especial UK edition next week. On the three episodes of the “Late Late London” the guests will be Tom Cruise, Harry Styles, David Beckham, Nicole Kidman, Emily Blunt, Kit Harington, Sir Ben Kingsley, Russell Brand, boxer Anthony Joshua, and Kings Of Leon. Also, the show will feature a “Drop The Mic rap battle” with The Voice UK judge Jennifer Hudson. Along with all of that the “brit” touch will be certainly felt, since even James has warned the audience that “My accent gets thicker when I’m back home, even I don’t know what I’m saying”. The shows will be broadcast from London over three, June 7-9, nights next week on Sky 1, and on CBS in the US.
