2017 Grammys: James Corden Leads Keith Urban, John Legend, Jennifer Lopez In ‘Sweet Caroline’ Carpool Karaoke
Given that James Corden was hosting this year’s Grammy Awards, the late night talk show hosts’s super-popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment was likely to figure at one point in the ceremony on Sunday.

Though Corden didn’t actually bring a real car into Los Angeles’ Stales Center on Sunday night, he did use a cardboard cutout of one to perform some classic songs, with a little help from a quickly-assembled impromptu group of top artists: Jennifer Lopez, Neil Diamond, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, John Legend, Ryan Tedder, Jason Derulo, Keith Urban and Blue Ivy Carter!
The group sang Diamond’s hit “Sweet Caroline” as well as the Foundations’ “Build Me Up Buttercup.”

Corden also took the time to remind fans watching at home that this year’s Grammys are interactive, and told everyone to tweet using the hashtag “#Grammys.” However, live tweets began popping up on the screen, all of them mocking and criticizing the British host for his appearance and other reasons, which led Corden to dismiss them as “fake tweets,” alluding to the fake news phenomenon.
