James Corden’s segment Carpool Karaoke will be spun off into a weekly show, to be hosted on Apple Music from August 8.
Apple promises “many of today’s biggest names in music, television, film, sports and pop culture buckling up and belting out their favorite songs” across 16 episodes, but those who rely on Corden’s wit and warmth to steer the entire thing may be dismayed to find he won’t be hosting.
Instead, Carpool Karaoke: The Series will feature rotating guest hosts, with Corden only appearing in two sketches. So far they have confirmed a number of big names, including Miley and the entire Cyrus family, Will Smith, Maisie Williams, John Legend, Alicia Keys, LeBron James and more.
This is the latest team-up between Corden and Apple Music, with the winners of their monthly Up Next competition appearing on The Late Late Show.
Happily, Corden will continue doing the segment on his show, too. New episodes of the show will be on Apple Music each Tuesday.
