It’s hard to believe that we’re a third of the way through the year but we have yet to experience one of James Corden’s incredible Carpool Karaokes. That was until last night (April 23), when James finally unveiled the first Carpool of the year, featuring vocal powerhouse Christina Aguilera.
From insane vocal acrobatics, spilling the tea to a surprise guest, we’ve rounded up five of the best moments from Christina’s Carpool Karaoke.
1. Christina teaches James her iconic growl
Not only does Christina have a distinct vocal, but she also has an instantly recognisable growl in a lot of her powerful songs, including ‘Fighter’. She teaches James how to get his angst on, although he ends up sounding more like Fozzy Bear from The Muppets.
2. Spilling the tea on the Mickey Mouse Club
It’s no secret that as a child, Christina was part of the Mickey Mouse Club with the likes of Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling. James gets a slightly reluctant Christina to spill the tea on who fancied who.
3. Nailing the ‘Dirrty’ run 16 years later
Don’t pretend like you don’t know the iconic run – Christina sounds absolutely incredible and makes us want to relive 2002 all over again.
4. Melissa McCarthy gatecrashes
Just after we have our minds blown by Christina’s vocals, BAM – Ghostbusters actress Melissa McCarthy makes a surprise appearance and performs Redman’s ‘Dirrty’ rap. She also joins Christina and James for some more fun and games in the car.
5. We are ‘Beautiful’
To round off the Carpool, Christina and James perform a wonderful version of one of her biggest hits, ‘Beautiful’. Once again, Xtina shows off her world class vocals and we can’t help but feel empowered by the ballad.
