James Corden Doesn’t Want ‘Carpool Karaoke’ to Become Overexposed
As CBS airs tonight’s The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, Corden says he realizes that he quickly can burn out on his famous comedy bit. In the month of February alone, with CBS airing the Super Bowl, Corden did Carpool Karaokes with Elton John, Sia and Chris Martin. “Now, for us, it’s mostly about protecting it and not doing it too much,” Corden tells Time magazine. “We’ve only done 11. We could do one every week, if we wanted to, but we don’t. To stagger it so it always feels fresh. The two things we think are: They have to have enough hits, and there are so many brilliant artists who I’d love to ride around in a car with, but you have to have enough hits to ride around in a car for 10 or 12 minutes. And I have to be a fan. I have to go, ‘Oh my God.’ Because that’s part of the joyfulness of it, that this is someone I love and respect.”
