James Corden is taking his Late Late Show across the pond, and a teaser features Ed Sheeran strumming away on his acoustic guitar and rapping on the road in Carpool Karaoke. He’s shown performing 2014’s “Sing” and 2016’s “Castle on the Hill” with Cordon.
Sheeran, 26, was a little hesitant about sliding into the passenger seat of Corden’s car.
“I know the whole thing is singing to your tune, but I think I’d feel a bit awkward singing to my song,” he told Capital FM’s Roman Kemp Show in January. “I think I’d just want to put on some Biggie. I want to put on something really awkward and dirty, like Biggie’s song ‘Big Booty Hos,’ or something like that, and just hear James Corden sing along to that.”
The promo also revealed guests Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Kit Harington, David Beckham, Emily Blunt, Jennifer Hudson, Kings of Leon and Harry Styles would make appearances on the show’s U.K. episodes.
