This 2017 marks the two-year anniversary of this phenomenal segment, but unlike the original segment from the show, Apple Music put on million of dollars to actually get some of the biggest names in music, sports, television, and movie scene. Some of them are Lebron James, Ariana Grande, Will Smith, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus and family, Queen Latifah, Shaquille O’Neal and more. However, the host, James Corden, wouldn’t always make an appearance every episode since he is doing his own show, that is why he will only make an appearance at the beginning with Will Smith as well as with the last episode alongside Lebron James.

When Apple Music got the rights over Carpool Karaoke, Apple’s Eddy Cue and Jimmy Iovine let the two producers, Ben Winston and Eric Pankowski, what will happen and how different it will be from the segment. “You will see people singing the hits you live, big stars singing other people’s songs like actors, comedians, and athletes singing and rapping songs that mean something to them. You can tell it’s real because you can’t fake passion and when you see it, it’s infectious,” Pankowski stated. This Apple original series is now available for purchase so you can go and check it out while watching its trailer below.
