Late Late Show to Air Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, Featuring New Segment With Jennifer Lopez

Elton John Carpool Karaoke

Haven’t gotten enough of Adele singing the Spice Girls? Neither has CBS.

To commemorate James Corden‘s one-year anniversary as Late Late Show host, the network will air The Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special on Tuesday, March 29, at 10/9c.

The hour-long program will feature Corden as he revisits memorable installments of the viral video series, and American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez will join Corden for the latest ride-along.

“I have loved every minute of hosting The Late Late Show. It’s been an incredible year,” Corden said in a statement. “I look forward to this hour on primetime to look at some of my favorite moments and share a couple of great new ones. I can’t wait!”

Added executive producer Rob Crabbe: “We’re thrilled with the opportunity to introduce a primetime audience to some of the fun we’re having every night after midnight. We can’t wait to share our big opening number and to see what James and Jennifer Lopez get into as they Carpool Karaoke to work.”

The Late Late Show — which airs weeknights at 12:37 am — has had considerable success with Carpool Karaoke since Corden took the hosting reins last March. Not only has Adele’s appearance notched 84 million views on YouTube, making it the most-watched late-night clip ever, but Corden and his fellow EPs are shopping a full-blown Carpool Karaoke series to cable networks.
