James Corden has revealed that he has plans to bring stars to the stage to sing karaoke at the Tony Awards on Sunday night as he is set to host the ceremony.
The British comedian’s first year of hosting The Late Late Show has come to an end after a star-studded season, listing Mariah Carey, George Clooney and Julia Roberts among his Carpool Karaoke guests.
"I thought, 'Why don't we have a big, sort of karaoke-type sing-along in the Beacon Theatre? Because there's all these incredibly talented people in there,” he said during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
"So I might go out and give them some drinks and then see if I can get, like, Barbra Streisand to sing something," he said cheekily.
However, only guests attending the awards ceremony will get to see the performances as they would happen during commercial breaks.
"We'll have our own show that no one (at home) will see,” he told Meyers.
The comedy host also revealed which Carpool Karaoke guest made him most nervous.
Corden admitted that his first carpool with Mariah Carey had his nerves shaken.
“I’m a huge fan of hers,” the 37-year-old said.
“All that would play in our house would be Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey. So my childhood was basically either watching Grease, or walking around singing like, ‘You’ve got me feeling emotions…'”
