Carpool Karaoke without James Corden?
Back in July 2016, Apple acquired the rights to Carpool Karaoke, a regular segment featured on The Late Late Show with James Cordon on CBS that's proven itself a viral sensation. Other pairings on the show will include musicians Alicia Keys and John Legend, along with Taraji P. Henson, star of the film "Hidden Figures" and TV's "Empire"; singer Ariana Grande and "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane; and TV host and comedian Chelsea Handler and singer Blake Shelton. The series won't be filmed exclusively in the auto.
On Monday morning, the show's executive producer Ben Winston provided some details while speaking at a panel during the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour. "People would talk to us about this moment....and they loved it". LATE LATE SHOW host James Corden, who originated the feature, will not appear in the upcoming incarnation.
The 16-episode series pairs various stars together to belt out various tunes. That part's saved for the rest of Cordon's late night television show.
UK's Boris Johnson In NY to Meet Trump Aides
Johnson met Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, for " positive and frank talks " in NY . Although Johnson has knocked Trump, he has also defended him from criticism in Europe.
"Each one was its own event", Pankowski said. "We wouldn't do Will Smith on ['Late Late Show"]", Winston said.
Apple's first season will see a whopping 16 different pairings, though one will feature Corden himself. "So it's been a really fun experience", said Pankowski. Pankowski says putting someone like Will Smith in the auto didn't make sense for the show, but on Apple Music it works. "We've done 300 shows and we've done it, what, 23 times?"
"It's a half hour show where you put two people together in an interview setting where they ask each other questions, they learn about each other's lives, and they sing in a vehicle", Ben said. Of course, it'll be an uphill battle for Apple to dominate in the video streaming industry as they're newcomers to a game already crowded by the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and even Amazon, but if Carpool Karaoke on the company's platform is anything like Cordon's bit on The Late Late Show, we can expect plenty of users gravitating towards Apple Music in greater quantities than ever before. I'll do it.' So, we all have so much to thank him for, for the music that he's given that will last forever.
