Who's on tap for James Corden's 'Carpool Karaoke' Apple Music spinoff?

The Apple Music series, which will help underpin Cupertino's original content line-up for its music streaming service, is yet to receive a premiere date.

"We love music, and Carpool Karaoke celebrates it in a fun and unique way that is a hit with audiences of all ages". They'll be paired up with people like Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Metallica, and Will Smith, and in addition to singing songs together, it sounds like the show will also feature interviews and segments that take place outside of the comfortable confines of the auto.

The CBS version has primarily focused on musical guests with Corden behind the wheel, while celebrity interviews have been saved for other segments of The Late Late Show.

Carpool Karaoke began as a comic bit for Red Nose Day in 2011, when Corden and George Michael sang in a vehicle. A few of the pairs have been revealed, including John Legend with Alicia Keys, Seth MacFarlane with Ariana Grande, Billy Eichner with Metallica, and talk show host Michael Strahan with NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon. Corden and executive producers Ben Winston and Eric Pankowski shared the news at the Television Critics Association today, saying that it would be "silly" to try and duplicate the success of the format that the British host has perfected.

The company also plans to add more interview elements to the show, which was created by Late Late Show host James Corden.

However, despite being one of the biggest singers on the planet Ed admits he isn't keen on singing along to his own tracks. He did, however, emphasize that the time commitment prevents them from doing it too often: "We can only do it so many times on our show, and there's so many lovely people I want to see in that environment". "There's something about the intimacy of a auto", joked Winston. I'll do it.' So, we all have so much to thank him for, for the music that he's given that will last forever.

Apple paid handsomely for the spinoff series, so what's next?
