Apple Releases First Trailer For 'Carpool Karaoke' Series

During Sunday night's Grammy Awards, Corden a fake vehicle prop and began a segment of Carpool Karaoke, only this time with a ton of A-list celebrities instead of just one riding in the front seat with him.

The Californian company confirmed it had obtained the rights to the show last July, and is expected to act as an incentive to drive users to sign up to Apple Music. And that he did.

Seated in a cardboard cutout of a auto, Corden pulled together Neil Diamond, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Faith Hill, Jason Derulo, Ryan Tedder, Keith Urban, and Tim McGraw to perform Diamond's song. The bit was clearly planned, but about halfway through young Blue Ivy Carter ran up to join the group in a moment that seemed genuinely impromptu.

Meanwhile, her mother was off winning the Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album, and sharing the Best Album award with Adele, who broke her award in half to share with who she felt was the deserved victor. So far Apple hasn't announced when the new series shall be aired however, with yesterdays trailer it's likely that the show is in the final stages of editing.

Other pairs that feature in the trailer are singer Ariana Grande and Family Guy creator Seth Macfarlane, country artist Blake Shelton and TV host Chelsea Handler, and R&B artists Alicia Keys and John Legend.

Corden himself starts off with the famed "Do you mind if we listen to some music?" line, which typically starts off a rambunctious jam session.

The series is slated to arrive exclusively on Apple Music this year, but the teaser wasn't able to confirm exactly when, only hinting that it's coming soon.

In the audio-visual mash-up, we see a preview of who will be buckling up to take the lyrical ride and seemingly step out for some fun antics along the way. As previously noted, James Corden will not be hosting the show, but will be an executive producer for it.
