Looks like fans will be enjoying yet another fun-filled musical ride in the Apple Music Carpool Karaoke. As per Rolling Stone, artists like Metallica, Will Smith, Alicia Keys, John Legend, and Ariana Grande will take a ride on the famous Carpool Karaoke series. But they won’t be seeing James Corden near the steering wheel. At least not as often as before.
Apple Music Carpool Karaoke
The success of Carpool Karaoke with James Corden was followed by the production of two different series. Apple Music then announced in July 2016 that the company will be distributing series based on the segment.
The difference between Corden’s Carpool Karaoke and the Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke is that the latter won’t be having a single host driving anymore. The executive producers, including James Corden, decided to have different hosts for each of the episodes.
The show will have 16 episodes, with different pairs every episode. Fans can expect Billy Eichner driving Metallica around Hollywood, while John Legend drives with Alicia Keys.
Variety also reported that Blake Shelton and Chelsea Handler will also be carpooling around LA. Additionally, Ariana Grande will be expected driving with Seth McFarlane.
Even more, Rolling Stone reported that say that James Corden will be driving around town with Will Smith. So fans wouldn’t miss James Corden in Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke for too long.
