James Corden's The Late Late Show shuffled its way into primetime Monday night for its "The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special." As much as that sounds like it was going to be late night's version of a clip show, Corden had plenty of new musical segments in the show.
The feature piece was a brand new "Carpool Karaoke" featuring Christina Aguilera. She started by trying to explain the slight rasp she can work up, which Corden couldn't replicate while signing "Fighter." He wasn't all that close to replicating it. He suggested he sounds like Fozzy Bear while attempting it, but it might be slightly closer to Grover.
The highlight wasn't the rasp, but a surprise appearance from Melissa McCarthy. She appears from nowhere to do Redman's verse in "Dirrty."
