Late Late Show host James Corden has made a name for himself with his “Carpool Karaoke” sketches. The videos feature Corden picking up a singer, actor, or band, and driving them around town while they chat and sing together.
While it may sound like a simple concept, these videos have won the hearts of Corden’s many fans and have made him a household name.
In preparation for his upcoming gig hosting the Tony Awards, Corden featured a new type of guest he hasn’t had on before – Broadway stars.
The sketch starts out with Corden talking to the creator and star of the massively popular musical Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Together they sing the show’s opening number, “Alexander Hamilton,” and then talk about the community the actors have on Broadway.
Right on cue they find actors Audra McDonald, a six-time Tony winner, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Jane Krakowski, and invite them to join in on the fun.
