After days of anticipation, James Corden's Carpool Karaoke segment with Adele is finally here!

The Brit late-night show host drove around with the one and only Grammy winner, and it's safe to say that the two hit it off right away.

Adele and Corden wasted no time in getting down to business, with pitch-perfect duets of one of her most famous tracks from the past like "Rolling in the Deep," followed by her current chart-topping ballad, "Hello."

And as usually tends to happen with Corden's Carpool Karaoke segment, the Late Late Show host's chemistry with his musical guest (and passenger) is absolutely undeniable.

During a preview clip from earlier this week, the 27-year-old chatted about her newly chopped locks.

Corden admitted he's "loving" the new look, reassuring a hesitant Adele after her big hairdo change.

Adele tureds to the comedian and explains that she's contemplating wearing a weave for an appearance the next day, to which Corden replied, "What I like is that you're coming to me for this advice."

The two immediately burst into laughter before going right back into singing tracks around town.

"It's such a shame that it's running because I think Americans are going to assume that England is rubbish," Adele told Corden before launching into "Hello."

After drumming in the car, Adele spilled tea all over her new coat. "I'm all right! I'm all right! I downed it," she said. Later, she revealed that she'd been drunk "three nights in a row" around the Christmas holiday. While waiting for a friend at a restaurant, she ordered one glass of wine—and then another—and decided to approach a family. "I went over, a bit drunk, and I said, 'Did you call my name earlier?' I was like, 'Sorry. I had my security with me. Sorry. He's being a bit protective or whatever.' I went, 'Did I hear it was your birthday? Let me get your meal for you!' So, I paid for their meal. And then I had another glass of wine. Then my friend arrived and I had two more glasses of wine. Bear in mind that I haven't really had a drink in, like, eight months." The next day, while in the park, she found an e-mail address in her pocket belonging to a family in Nashville that was unable to buy tickets to her show. Of course, she hooked them up with free tickets. "That's what happens when I'm drunk," Adele explained.

Next up: a rousing rendition of "Someone Like You."

The two also bonded over their mutual love of The Spice Girls and Adele's heartbreak after Geri Halliwell quit the band in the late '90s. "That was the first time I was, like, truly heartbroken," Adele explained before covering "Wannabe" with Corden.

After singing Adele's "All I Ask," Corden suggested she assemble an A-list posse. "If you put together a squad, which was like, you, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lawrence—she'd bring Amy Schumer and like Emma StoneTaylor Swift's squad would, like, s--t themselves," he said. Adele disagreed, saying, "They're Amazonian. They're all so tall. They'll just kick us in their long legs."

Corden had also heard that Adele is a skilled rapper, so he put her skills to the test as she recited Nicki Minaj's lines from "Monster."

Before the ride ended, the two had a few laughs talking about EGOT possibilities, being "THE Adele," and remixing "Rolling in the Deep."

But don't take our word for it; check out the video of these two above and enjoy!
