On Monday, the executive producer of the show, Ben Winston had a Q & A with reporters during the show’s Television Critics Association session where he revealed that while Carpool Karaoke will still remain an occasional segment on the Late Late Show, it will now be its own standalone series consisting of 16 episodes on Apple Music. The producers graciously admitted that James’ pizazz and overall talent as host cannot be replaced so instead of settling on one consistent host for the new series, there will be multiples, a new one per episode. They gave a teaser of who some of the hosts and pairings will be revealing that John Legend, Alicia Keys, Taraji P. Henson, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Billy Eichner, Metallica, Blake Shelton, Chelsea Handler, and Will Smith will all hop in for the infamous carpool.
As for how the carpool pairing are decided, James said the process is a little bit of everything. He explained the process saying QUOTE - "…a lot of it comes down to schedule and time. Mostly you go, well these people are interested in doing it, these people would like to do it, oh that's a good pairing. Or in the case of Chelsea Handler and Blake Shelton, they both came and said we'd love to do it together. So it's a little bit of everything."
Thankfully James did assure us that although Carpool Karaoke will now be its own show, it will still remain part of the Late Late Show. He told reporters QUOTE - “We’re still going to do it on our show. This just became a wonderful platform to see these people in such an intimate environment.”
The new Carpool Karaoke will consist of 16 half hour episodes and will debut later this year on Apple Music. I’m still bitter about the fact that James isn’t going to be the consistent host, but this isn’t about me so I want to hear what you guys think. Are you a fan of the multiple hosts idea?
