Bruno Mars, James Corden harmonizing on Carpool Karaoke is pure 24K Magic

In what was likely one of the most hotly anticipated Carpool Karaoke segments yet, James Corden was finally joined in his vehicle by mega pop star Bruno Mars as the two sang, chatted, and navigated the streets of Los Angeles.

While the pair sang a number of songs from Mars’ new album 24K Magic, including the title track, the pair also belted out some of the singer’s past hit anthems, including Locked Out of Heaven, Grenade, and Uptown Funk. But the most entertaining (and awkward) moments came during their rendition of the new song Versace on the Floor, as Corden tried desperately to mimic Mars’ suave shoulder dancing and lip licking, which are apparently a key part of his dance moves — and romantic endeavors. Sexual tips aside, you can’t help but rock out right along with the pair as they sing the upbeat smash hit Uptown Funk.

While not much was revealed about Mars’ personal life (real name Peter Gene Hernandez) from the short conversations that filled the gaps in between singing, we do learn that he was inspired by Elvis Presley when he was four years old, and reports knowing that he already wanted to be an entertainer  by that young age. As a throwback, he sings The King’s Jailhouse Rock, acapella, showing off his amazing pipes and wondrous range.

While this edition of Carpool Karaoke, a segment from Corden’s late night talk show The Late Late Show with James Corden, was more focused on the music than talking, would we expect anything less from Bruno Mars? It’s mesmerizing to watch how fantastically he can sing on the fly, while Corden impresses again with his great harmonizing skills.

At this writing, the video had already been seen by more than half a million viewers, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it become one of the most-watched Carpool Karaoke segments. Currently, that title goes to Adele, who’s edition of Carpool Karaoke, posted in January, has more than 138 million views to date.
