Commuting is far more entertaining when Lady Gaga is in the passenger’s seat.
The duo took a trip around Los Angeles singing some of the 30-year-old musician’s biggest hits. What started with a rap of Ludacris’ “Move Bitch Get Out the Way” quickly transitioned to Gaga’s first single off Joanne as the duo belted out “Perfect Illusion” in matching harmony.
And like many previous Carpools, the conversations are just as great as the musical renditions! With Corden role playing as a NFL rep, Gaga recreated the moment she got the call to headline the Super Bowl halftime show.
“Gaga, it’s Dave from the NFL. What are you doing early next year?” Corden said with the Joanne hitmaker reacting, “Oh my gosh, are you giving me the Super Bowl?”
Then, Carpool Karaoke turned into Carpool Choreography when Gaga’s smash “Bad Romance” came on, with The Late Late Show host nailing every move.
The six-time Grammy winner, who just passed her driver’s test, also got behind the wheel. Just for extra safety, Corden strapped on a black bike helmet while Gaga had a hard time shifting the gear lever into “drive” and swerved on the road.
Corden made a nod to Gaga’s sartorial risk-taking by donning her past outfits such as the red lace mini from the 2009 MTV VMAs, the caution tape costume from her “Telephone” music video, the infamous meat dress from the 2010 MTV VMAs as well as the white layered dress she wore to the 2010 Brit Awards.
Also featured in the Carpool setlist were snippets of her chart-topping singles “The Edge of Glory,” “Born This Way,” “Poker Face” and “Million Reasons.” There was even a throwback of O-Town’s “Liquid Dreams.”
Added bonus: Gaga surprised viewers by opening the show with a special monologue and even became the night’s band leader alongside Reggie Watts.
The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights (12:35 a.m. ET) on CBS.
