James Corden, Adele, Carpool Karaoke


James Corden is hosting the 2017 Grammy Awards, but it won't be the first time he'll come face to face with this year's nominees. 

From Adele to Carrie Underwood, many of the international musical stars honored with a nod (or multiple!) this year have already spent quality time with Corden in the front seat of his car for The Late Late Show's now viral Carpool Karaoke segment. 

While he has harmonized with the country's standout musicians to their greatest hits, the British late-night host has also gotten to know music's finest on a deeper level, whether it be from going cowboy boot shopping or picking up french fries at a drive-thru. 

Now, as they gear up to take home Grammy gold, here's a ranking of their Carpool Karaoke segments. If only this year's nine-time nominee, Beyoncé, would sign on for a segment. As Corden told British GQ"It would break the Internet." He's not wrong!

Without further ado: 

8. Carrie Underwood

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 1

While we'll always love some time with the "Before He Cheats" country songstress, the pair unfortunately spent too much time shopping for cowboy boots and not enough time singing. 

7. Sia

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 3

One of the benefits of a segment with Sia is she not only is the woman behind hits like "Chandelier" and "Titanium," but she was also the wordsmith for Rihanna's "Diamonds."

6. Gwen Stefani

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 1

This Carpool Karaoke was a three for one special with Oscar-winning guests George Clooney and Julia Roberts arriving just in time to sing "Hollaback Girl."

5. Chris Martin

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 1

If singing through his library of Coldplay hits wasn't enough, fans got to watch Martin and Corden snuggle for the grand finale.

4. Justin Bieber

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 3

Watching the international pop star sing his first hit "Baby" is the ultimate nostalgic treat.  

3. Demi Lovato

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 1

We got two for the price of one in the "Confident" singer's segment with pal and fellow performer Nick Jonas. Lovato's recap of Jonas's pre-teen love life still has us giggling. 

2. Jennifer Hudson

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 1

The Oscar winner sang her burger order at the drive-thru. No more explanation necessary. 

1. Adele

2017 Grammy Nomination Count: 5

Between rapping Nicki Minaj's "Monster" and reenacting the Spice Girls's greatest hit, fans were more than happy to say "Hello" to this Carpool Karaoke segment—it's been viewed over 135 million times.
