James Corden Sings Carpool Karaoke With Stevie Wonder.

LOS ANGELES (CBS Sacramento) – Monday night on the “Late Late Show’s With James Corden, ” the host was a bit nervous for this segment of Carpool Karaoke. James Corden has driven the likes of Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber around in his car for The Late Late Show in recent months, and while his talented guests have made the presenter laugh, none of them managed to make him cry. Corden said his wife Julia may not believe that he was in the car with Wonder, and asked the Superstition singer if they could call her to prove it while they drove around the streets of LA. On the road, however, the tension dissipated as the pair bopped along to “Superstition,” and Wonder cautioned Corden, “Hey, watch where you’re driving!” Elsewhere, Wonder gave a family member a call to make sure it was Corden who was driving the car: “All English guys look alike,” he cracked. “All sound alike — no offense, man.” After singing “Sir Duke,” Wonder hopped on the phone with Corden’s wife to serenade her with an a cappella version of “I Just Called to Say I Love You.” Later, Wonder informed a friend — again via FaceTime — he would be forming a new group with Corden called the Wondercats. Wonder only sang a few lines of the hit down the phone, but it was enough to see the presenter become overcome with emotion and start rubbing his eyes.

Though their name sounded old, their vibe would be futuristic (neon outfits with Corden dancing on the piano) and their shtick would be penning new lyrics to Wonder’s classics. The pair sang along to a host of Wonder’s hits as they drove to Corden’s work, giving the legendary singer the chance to show off his accomplished British accent.

Then, to the tune of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” the Wondercats made their debut: “Like a fool I went and stayed too long, but the Wondercats are coming strong / Here we are, signed, sealed, delivered / We’re yours.” Despite their initial sniping, the segment closed with Wonder insisting Corden give him a call if he ever needed a buddy to drive along with to work. The two then finished up their trek with a rousing rendition of “For Once in My Life.” Though he may not be singing karaoke shotgun, Wonder will return to the road soon.

The musician recently added 20 new dates to his Songs in the Key of Life Performance Tour, starting September 30th at the Bell Centre in Montreal. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
