Carpool Karaoke: Lin-Manuel Miranda Leads Broadway-Centric Ride (Video)

We. Want In. That. Car.

As foreshadowed last week, Monday’s Late Late Show found host and Carpool Karaoke ringleader James Corden trekking around Manhattan with Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as Audra McDonald (Private Practice), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) and Jane Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). On the quintet’s playlist: Songs from (natch) Hamilton, as well as Broadway classics Les Misérables and Rent.

The wildly entertaining stunt was tied to this year’s Tony Awards, over which Corden will preside when they’re broadcast live on Sunday, June 12, on CBS. All four of Corden’s guests know their way around the Great White Way: McDonald currently stars in Shuffle Along, Krakowski in She Loves Me and Ferguson in Fully Committed; Miranda created and sings the lead role in the musical Hamilton.

Krakowski and Miranda are both nominated in this year’s competition: He in three categories — part of Hamilton‘s 16 record-breaking nods —  and her for Featured Actress in a Musical.

Press PLAY above and then hit the comments with an answer to this rhetorical question: Is this the best Carpool Karaoke yet?

    Oh man, that was AMAZING!!!! What a wonderful way to wake up 😍 I almost STROKED in delight when James said that they had to sing ‘one song more’, oh. my. God!!!!

    How fun to see Broadway stars having as much fun singing to these wonderful songs as much as WE do 🎶 🎶

    That was gloriously uplifting! I can’t stop watching it! One Day More had me in tears. And Audra McDonald’s soaring soprano undid me. Beautiful…

    Thank you James Corden! Thank you TVLine!

  14. Stefanie says:

    I’m pretty sure that this would have been improved with a song from A Chorus Line or Jesus Christ Superstar, but it’s still pretty fun as is.

  15. Anna says:

    I fell apart when they sang One Day More. Hands down the best Carpool Karaoke Corden has done.

  16. As a HUGE Broadway nerd, this was spectacular!

  17. Standing Ovations… that was incredible!
