Gwen Stefani is a big star, with lots of songs under her belt, from “Don’t Speak” from her No Doubt days to “The Sweet Escape,” “Used to Love You” and “Rich Girl.” Gwen and James Corden sang along to those ditties, talked about emojis and explained to her what the “eggplant” is. All was going swimmingly until they hit the HOV 4 carpool lane, which requires four people in a car. And with only Gwen and James, they needed two more passengers.
So, Corden called up a guy who has “nothing to do,” which could’ve been anyone, right? But who steps into the SUV? Oh, no one special. Only George. Clooney. Do the math, though, and that’s only three. So leave it to Georgie to call up a pal of his own: Julia Roberts. Amazing, right?
No, wait. It’s when the foursome bust out “Hollaback Girl” that you’ll be smiling and laughing and, yes, singing along.
Gwen, James and the Money Monster co-stars then attack Queen’s “We Are the Champions” and OH. MY. GEE. They are the champions indeed. Sorry, every other “Carpool Karaoke” ever, but this is definitely the one to beat.
