Carpool Karaoke won its first Emmy for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series in the Creative Arts category.
Ariana Grande and Carpool Karaoke fans can rejoice because she just finished spending the day in the car with James Cordoe. Grande tweeted about how much fun she had and said she can’t wait for everyone to see what they recorded. She didn’t say if they recorded a segment for the Late Late Show, or if this was for Apple’s Carpool Karaoke series. I’m guessing it’s the former, which means we’ll get to see it pretty soon.
that was the best day ever @JKCorden thank you so much to you and your incredible crew and band and writers ! sm fun. can’t wait for y’all to seeeee what we been up to.

Apple is teasing a new episode of Carpool Karaoke on June 15th, and the trailer’s out. It features Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, and Jeremy Renner, and it looks pretty funny. The three are starring in a new comedy called TAG, which debuts the same day as this episode of Carpool Karaoke will be released, June 15th. That’s this Friday, and I can’t wait to see if season 2 of Carpool Karaoke is better than season 1. Judging by this trailer, that might be a big yes. The episode will be available on Apple Music when it’s released.
Apple’s Carpool Karaoke: The Series is coming back for a second season on Apple Music.
Apple Music teased the Halloween episode of Carpool Karaoke with James Corden and Lebron James on Thursday. It’s a short teaser at just 31 seconds, with a glimpse at a buddy cop-style skit. This is one of just a couple of episodes in season one of the standalone adaptation of Carpool Karaoke that feature James Corden.
Apple Music released two new trailers on Tuesday for Carpool Karaoke. The first episode is with Chelsea Handler and Blake Shelton, while the second is for Tyrese and Ludacris. The Chelsea Handler and Blake Shelton trailer is a first in that comedian Chelsea Handler doesn’t seem like she can sing. Fortunately for her, Blake Shelton is on The Voice and can maybe teach her. Tyrese and Ludacris’s trailer focuses on songs from the 90s and looks fun. Both episodes are scheduled for release on Apple Music on October 3rd.
Apple has a new teaser video out for Carpool Karaoke. This one promotes an episode centered around Miley Cyrus, her father Billy Ray Cyrus, and the rest of their family. In addition to the family (of singers) singing pop tunes, they also do some dancing (in and out of a vehicle) and take a family photo. As with other episodes in the series, fans of the artists will dig it, while non-fans will meh it.
Teasers hint at a Game of Thrones attraction cameo, as well as a past with a french horn.
Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke The Series finally premiered, and it’s a light hearted diversion Apple hopes will draw in new subscribers.
Carpool Karaoke is Apple Music’s biggest bet yet on original video content, and it has been met with mixed criticism so far—the trailers, at least, are a lot of fun.
John Martellaro and Kelly Guimont join Jeff Gamet to share their thoughts on last night’s Carpool Karaoke launch on Apple Music, plus John tells us how expensive this fall will be thanks to new Apple products.
After a handful of delays, Carpool Karaoke The Series has finally premiered on Apple Music.
Apple Music has a new preview video to promote Carpool Karaoke, The Series, which officially debuts August 8th. It features Carpool Karaoke creator James Corden and Will Smith, and it looks like a Crap Tonne™ of fun. It starts off with a smidgen of “Parents Just Don’t Understand,” and who doesn’t love that? OK, fine, YMMV, but I’m digging it. There’s also a marching band and a helicopter, because why not, right? Check it out.
The video features many more celebrities than were originally announced, including Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, Gwen Stefani, Ariana Grande, Camilla Cabello, Metallica, Billy Eichner, Trevor Noah, Blake Shelton, and many more.
The first season features two episodes hosted by James Corden, and we have the full lineup.
Uber tried to pull one over on Apple by tracking iPhones in violation of App Store guidelines. Jeff Butts and Bryan Chaffin dive into what Uber did with Jeff Gamet, plus they share their thoughts on Apple postponing Carpool Karaoke’s premiere again.
Apple had planned on launching its Carpool Karaoke: The Series on Apple Music this month, but that’s been pushed out until some time later this year. This is the second delay for the show’s launch, and Apple isn’t offering up any explanation for the delayed debut.
Spotify must think Apple Music has the right idea with this original video thing because it’s doing the same thing. Variety reported Wednesday that Spotify has purchased a show called Traffic Jams. Clearly borrowing from Apple Music’s Carpool Karaoke, Traffic Jams puts hip-hop producers and artists in a car and asks them to make a song in the back seat. We Apple fans may be inclined to dismiss this show because it’s a blatant ripoff. Ignore that instinct, though—that’s the way the TV industry works. Folks copy ideas, and sometimes they build on them. Instead, Spotify—which is beating Apple on users—is effectively validating Apple Music’s approach of using original video content to boost its steaming music business. That’s very interesting to me.
The future of streaming music is streaming media, according to Apple’s Eddy Cue, which is why the company is behind shows like Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps. The “Apple Music is more than just music” message is one he’s already expressed, and it’s a sign Apple’s competition in the streaming music market is growing beyond Spotify and Tidal to more inclusive services like Amazon Prime.
