Adele will reportedly be the final star ever to belt along to tunes in Carpool Karaoke for James Corden’s last The Late Late Show.
Adele fell in love with performing to intimate audiences during her Weekends With Adele residency in Las Vegas, so much so that she extended it, beginning in June and running through November. There is no venue smaller than a car, so it makes sense that Adele was all smiles while spotted filming what appeared to be an edition of “Carpool Karaoke” with James Corden in Los Angeles this week.

The Daily Mail reported on Wednesday, April 5, that Adele will serve as the final “Carpool Karaoke” guest before The Late Late Show With James Corden ends on April 27. That has not been confirmed, but Corden did speak with Entertainment Tonight over the weekend about what viewers can expect from the home stretch of The Late Late Show.
“My last guest is going to be huge pop star,” Corden teased. “There’s some really fun things to come. Twelve shows, three ‘Carpool Karaokes,’ last ‘Crosswalk the Musical.’ A really big bit, with I think maybe the biggest movie star in the world.”
Corden announced last April that he was planning to leave The Late Late Show at some point in 2023. His departure date of April 27, 2023 was revealed in February, as per Variety.
Adele’s first round on “Carpool Karaoke” aired in January 2016 and generated a record-breaking 260.5-plus million views on YouTube. You can refresh your memory of that below.
