In the near two years that he's been the host of CBS' The Late, Late Show, James Corden has used wildly popular Carpool Karaoke segment to play his own personal game of Pop Star Pokemon. Gotta catch 'em all!

He's cultivated an impressive roster of shotgun-riding singers since his very first ride with Mariah Carey, with the ranks swelling in the last two weeks to include Madonna and Bruno Mars. But there are still plenty of musical megastars out there, thumbs outstretched, just looking to hitch the next ride with James. Here are the ones we're still dying to see.

James Corden, Carpool Karaoke, Late Late Show


Between her stable of hits and her trademark BadGalRiri sass, we need Rihanna riding shotgun, like, yesterday.

Justin Timberlake
James told E! News' Marc Malkin that he's asked his Trolls co-star to get into his car "a million" times, but we've yet to see his persistence pay off. Is JT's allegiance to BFF Jimmy Fallon keeping him from Carpool Karaoke?

Taylor Swift
It's time that James becomes an honorary member of Tay's legendary squad, don't you think? 

Nicki Minaj
If only to see the queen of rap return Adeles favor from her CK trip where she performed Minaj's "Monster" verse like a boss. Or try to, at least...

Miley Cyrus
What we wouldn't do to see Miley and James belt out "Wrecking Ball" together...

Sam Hunt
Country music has been woefully underrepresented on Carpool Karaoke, with Carrie Underwood's appearance representing the entire genre at this point. It's time to change that country's newest hunk?

Kelly Clarkson
She's got the hits. She's got the voice. And she's got the personality. Kelly is the ideal Carpool Karaoke guest. Why hasn't this happened yet?

Rap and hip-hop may not be the ideal genre for Carpool Karaoke, considering that's probably not one of James' greatest strengths. But Drake is so much more than just a rapper. "Hotline Bling" and "One Dance" prove that. If nothing else, he has to make a cameo in Rihanna's segment, popping up to join her on one of their many duets.

If Rod Stewart can do Carpool Karaoke, then Cher can, too. Can you imagine the stories she'd have to tell? We're dying just thinking about it.

The Spice Girls
Victoria Beckham and Mel C. both seem pretty adamant that their time with the Spice Girls is very over, but how incredible would a one-time reunion for Carpool Karaoke be? Hey, we can dream, can't we?

Duh. Queen Bey might just prove to be Corden's Moby Dick given how little promotional work she's had to do over the past few years to maintain her throne, but think about what a show it would be if he ever did manage to land her. It might just be Carpool Karaoke to end all Carpool Karaokes because how would you top it?

Who's on the top of your Carpool Karaoke wish list? Let us know in the comments below.

The Late, Late Show airs weeknights at 12:37 a.m. on CBS.
