Multi-platinum recording artist Ed Sheeran wasn’t satisfied just singing along to his stream of smash hits. On Tuesday’s Late Late Show, the “Castle On the Hill” singer provided acoustic accompaniment during his Carpool Karaoke with host James Corden.
The melodic, 13-minute drive featured many of Sheeran’s biggest crowd-pleasers, including “Shape of You” and “Sing,” the latter of which allowed Corden a chance to show off during its particularly wordy bridge. What set this particular Carpool sesh apart, however, was Sheeran’s choice to turn off the radio for a stripped down version of “Thinking Out Loud.”
The joyous segment also featured talk of two-time Carpool Karaoke passenger Justin Bieber joining Sheeran at a dive bar in Tokyo, prompting a sing-along of “Love Yourself.” The setlist also included One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” and a new take on the aforementioned “Castle On the Hill” that focused on L.A. traffic.
Sheeran’s Carpool Karaoke helped kick off Corden’s three-night stint in London — though this particular segment was filmed Stateside.
