Adele Raps Nicki Minaj, Sings Spice Girls, 'Hello' in James Corden's Carpool Karaoke
James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" is always a delight to watch, but his latest rendition with Adele is, not surprisingly, his best yet. After teasing the epic commute earlier this week on The Late Late Show, on Wednesday night (Jan. 13), the full segment was released. And, if you've ever wanted to hear Adele sing Spice Girls or spit some rhymes like Nicki Minaj, well, you are in for a treat.
After the obligatory "Hello" joke, Corden and Adele drive around London on a dreary day, which Adele insisted was not fully indicative of their home country. After settling in, the dynamic duo ran through a few of Adele's hits, including "Hello" and her 25 fan favorite "All I Ask." Of course, no Adele car trip (or setlist) would be complete without "Rolling in the Deep" or "Someone Like You." And Adele was delightfully shocked when Corden whipped out his own relatively impressive singing abilities and harmonized with her on the legendary songs.
Throughout the 14-minute segment, we also learned a few things about Adele, including that she idolized the Spice Girls growing up and can rap other people's songs quite effectively. Thankfully, she delivered on both of these things, running through "Wannabe" and Minaj's insane "Monster" verse, complete with hand movements and big bug eyes. Of course, Nicki Minaj approved.

We also got a little glimpse in to Adele's personal life, which consists of getting drunk and being incredibly generous with fans and her ability to down a mug of tea in an instant.
