Last year James Corden surprised us with a star studded Christmas Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show, and this year he followed it up with a bigger one. He asked Mariah Carey to sit in the drivers seat as they sang her huge Christmas hit, All I Want for Christmas. But what we didn’t know, he has been working on this since January. He had past passengers like Adele, Gwen Stefani, Elton John, Lady Gaga and shockingly Red Hot Chili Peppers sing the Billboard Holiday Chart Topper with him and created this epic version of the addictive tune. Now we have a new Christmas Classic for the years to come.
If someone would’ve ever told you that Ghandi was going to transform into the Rocket Man, you would think that they were crazy. But that exactly what is going to happen this Wednesday’s Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV.
I don’t have much to say because I am still absorbing it all in. It is a lot to take in.
Elton John held his annual Oscars viewing party yesterday to raise money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and somehow Kelly Osbourne was invited. The socialite finagled her way over to the legendary singer’s table and said something to Sheryl Crow and him. I guess it wasn’t something to crow about because he said they were left unimpressed. Ouch! But then again, I can’t think of a time when she ever says anything impressive. Can you?
On a positive note about her, at least we no longer have to watch her on those E! Red Carpet shows.
Yesterday, James Corden hosted a special Super Bowl episode of The Late Late Show and he recreated infamous scenes from several Sports films with Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam Divine. Together they did their take on memorable moments from the Rocky movies, Any Given Sunday, The Blindside, Rudy and Bring It On. But the best one is when it was time to do Varsity Blues! Which means we got to see the CBS late night host in a whipped cream bra. And some times what is seen, can’t be unseen.
That wasn’t the only special thing that Corden did on his show yesterday, he also did Carpool Karaoke with Sir Elton John. The sweetest moment is when John talked about how his kids changed his life for the better.
Elton John was attending The Statoil Masters game yesterday, and after talking to his players he went to sit down. As soon as he put his butt down on the chair, it fell over with him in it. The reporter couldn’t hold back her laughter, but then had to get her composure back as she asked him if he was OK. The singer reworked I’m Still Standing to shake it off, but she just didn’t get it. Oh well, at least he didn’t make an a$$ of himself. Oh wait…
