One Direction Do ‘Carpool Karaoke’ With James Corden
James Corden‘s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ has given us a number of moments of pure comedic gold, Iggy Azealia and Justin Bieber‘s duets with the late night host being of particular note, and One Direction‘s appearance on the long-running skit achieves similar hilarity.
One Direction Do ‘Carpool Karaoke’ With James Cordon
Corden takes the wheel, Niall Horan the passenger side, while Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson pile into the back seat. The journey begins with a spirited rendition of the band’s megahit, “What Makes You Beautiful,” with Corden and Styles in particular giving it socks and Payne appearing altogether unenthused.
A car pulls up immediately after the song cuts and two excited female fans gawk in at the boys. Payne reveals they’d been following them for a while and Styles instruct the distracted ladies to keep their hands on the wheel.
When Corden asks if this type of thing ever bothers them, Tomlinson shares a decidedly unnerving anecdote.
“It does get a bit scary when people are close to your house,” he says. “I remember a couple of weeks ago I tweeted, ‘There’s nothing worse than waking up in the morning and you can’t have a cup of tea because you have no milk’ and within an hour I looked out and someone’s ringing my bell relentlessly. There’s this 45 year old woman and she’s like, ‘There’s the milk.'”
“Best Song Ever” was the musical highlight of the trip, Corden reaching some genuinely impressive notes and harmonizing like a pro.
The host also choreographs a routine for the boys and Horan reveals he’d sleep with Tina Fey, marry Selena Gomez and go on a cruise with Demi Lovato.
