Lady Gaga And James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Ride Goes Massively Viral, But Can She Beat Justin Bieber And Adele? [Video]
Lady Gaga's appearance on "Carpool Karaoke" this week with host James Corden has gone superviral, with millions of views so far on The Late Late Show with James Corden's YouTube channel. Even though Gaga's appearance has racked up more than 19 million views already, will she amass enough eyeballs to pass view charting champs Justin Bieber and Adele?
Gaga Steals The Show
Gaga and Corden had been teasing the appearance for quite some time, and it was worth the wait, as Gaga not only appeared on the pre-taped segment but opened the night's show in a skit in which she pretended to be taking over for the evening due to Corden's lateness. Corden then ran out on the stage in his boxer shorts feigning anger at the singer, who he then ordered to leave the studio. It was all in jest of course, when the audience cheered for Gaga's return and Corden reluctantly obliged.
Gaga proceeded to remain for the entire length of the show, playing bits of her song "A-YO" in and out of commercial breaks and even asking guest Matt LeBlanc a question about his former smash sitcom Friends.
Gaga Takes Corden For A Ride
It was Gaga's "Carpool Karaoke" ride with Corden that really stole the show, however, as the two rode around Los Angeles singing a number of her hit songs together, including "Poker Face", "Edge Of Glory", "Born This Way" and "Bad Romance", along with tunes from her new album Joanne , "Million Reasons" and "Perfect Illusion".
Corden also gave Lady Gaga, who just got her driver's license earlier this year, a chance to switch things up by letting her take the wheel for a while, until her questionable driving skills led him to retake the helm.
Gaga's singing skills, however, were in rare form, as she truly engaged with Corden and had both conversational and musical chemistry, unlike Britney Spears recent appearance during which the pop princess apparently didn't even know who Corden was.
The Gaga segment concludes with Corden wearing his version of a variety of her famously over the top costumes, including the controversial "meat dress".
YouTube Video Goes Viral
The segment has quickly become a smash viral hit much like many of the other "Carpool Karaoke" segments, which have in total amassed over 1 billion YouTube views.
The question now is whether Gaga has the staying power to rack up the amount of views that number one and two view leaders Adele, with more than 131 million views and Justin Bieber, with more than 95 million views, have received for their rides with Corden.
Only time will tell, but with over 19 million views in only a few short days, Gaga has made a great start at ultimately becoming one of the most viewed "Carpool Karaoke" guests ever.
