After receiving his first Grammy award for Best Dance Recording for “Where Are Ü Now,” Justin Bieber hopped in the car of James Corden for the Carpool Karaoke segment, singing a rendition of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’s “Uptown Funk.”
In the skit, Corden was late for his show and he hitched a ride with Bieber. While in Corden's Range Rover, the two who were wearing matching tuxedo jackets like "a pair of waiters on a cruise ship" hit some notes and traded lines for the song that just won Record of the Year, USA Today reported. They also did some dance moves including the "big box, little box, cardboard box" choreography, as shown in their previous trip together.
Corden even asked Biebs to apply some moisturizer on his face on its "T-zone" before they sang together. After the jam session, the two engaged in a funny conversation about their being in synch in many ways like being able to finish each other's sentences, MTV.com wrote.
According to Rolling Stone, the two also compared Grammy swag bags while in the car, wherein the pop star had a diamond necklace, a Rolex watch, a mini iPad and others while Corden only received a map of Los Angeles, a Danielle Steel book and a chapstick. Bieber then re-gift his new headphones to the host to make him feel better.
This is the third time that Bieber rode with Corden for the singing segment of The Late Late Show. The "Sorry" singer was also in this segment in November and May last year.
Apart from the "Love Yourself" singer, the short segment where celebrities get into Corden’s Range Rover while driving in Los Angeles saw One Direction, Adele, Coldplay's Chirs Martin and others participate. The segment, which became a viral sensation, showcase celebrities singing different covers from classic tones to current music trends.
