Britney Spears will be the latest artist to take part in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke this week, and from the trailer alone, fans are already accusing her of lip-syncing.
The singer follows a host of massive names to have taken part in the Late Late Show segment, which has become a huge hit since Corden took over the US talk show last year. The likes of Adele, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Sia and Mariah Carey have all appeared to sing along to their own biggest songs, as well as a handful of their favourites from other artists.
Tomorrow (Thursday 25 August) Britney Spears’ Carpool Karaoke hits the internet, but the trailer has people a little confused. The singer appears to be simply mouthing along to ‘Toxic’, rather than singing it live.
“Britney will be the first human being to make a Karaoke lipsync. Queen,” reads the top comment on YouTube. Others agree, saying, “Auto-Tune Karaoke? or Lipsync karaoke? we all know she cant sing for real.” Harsh.
Meanwhile, speaking to GQ, Corden recently said of his dream karaoke guest, “Beyoncé. It would break the Internet. She’s on tour right now. We’re working on it.”
Unfortunately though, Kanye West has cancelled on Corden - who began hosting the US talk show last year, replacing Craig Ferguson - twice. “He’ll do it eventually,” he insisted. “He wants to do it.”
He also revealed that West had sent “about three dozen white roses, of course. Arranged in the shape of a cube. What could be more Kanye than that?”
