James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” is getting the presidential treatment!
In Wednesday’s episode of The Late Late Show, James Corden will be joining First Lady Michelle Obama for a very special “Carpool Karaoke” at The White House.
In a teaser clip released on Monday, Corden and the First Lady drive around Washington, D.C., for a little musical fun. The two of them are seen singing Missy Elliott’s “Get Your Freak On,” followed by an animated performance of Beyonce’s hit, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”
Michelle Obama is a big fan of Beyonce, as the two of them have become close friends over the years. In 2009, Beyonce sang a cover of Etta James’ “At Last” for President Barack Obama’s 2009 Inaugural Ball. The 34-year-old singer made a return to The White House in 2013 to sing the national anthem on the President’s Inauguration Day.
During Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, he talked about the importance he placed on his friendship with Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z. “To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship. Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls [Malia and Natasha],” he stated. “[Jay Z], we both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard but it’s OK.”
