Carpool Karaoke Ranking


James Corden's Carpool Karaoke segments on The Late, Late Show have gone from viral video hit to late-night institution in the time that Mariah Carey deigned to ride shotgun alongside the host in March of 2015 to Lady Gaga getting behind the wheel (a CK first!) just last month. And the ride is far from over.

In the last week, both Madonna and Bruno Mars have filmed future segments with the host, nearly completing Corden's recent wishlist (waiting on you, Beyoncé) and definitely making our musical dreams come true. But before both the Queen and new Prince of Pop can come along and shake things up, we thought the time was right to official rank each and every one of Corden's Carpool Karaokes.

From Mariah to Britney, Stevie to Elton, Corden's car has seen over 20 of pop music's best and brightest go for a ride and belt out a tune or two. But not all Carpool Karaoke segments are made equal. While some manage to reach meteoric heights of musical greatness, others are merely good (because, let's be honest, there is no bad CK segment).

So, which pop star reigns supreme? Well, you're going to have to click through our new gallery to find out. Don't agree with our ranking? Let us know in the comments below.

The Late, Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights at 12:35 p.m. on CBS.
