There would be no "Carpool Karaoke" without George Michael.
So, when CBS' The Late Late Show returned from its holiday hiatus Tuesday, James Corden wanted to pay tribute to the 54-year-old singer, who was found dead Christmas morning. "We're so thrilled to be back. We really, really are. We missed you while we were away," the host began. "I went back to London over Christmas and had the best time. But there was some really sad news over Christmas that hit me really hard...the passing away of George Michael."
