In what may be the most highly anticipated episode of "Carpool Karaoke" of all time, ginger balladeer Ed Sheeran finally joined James Corden in his car for a sing-a-long. The episode was seen being filmed all the way back in April, but it wasn't available for viewing until today… finally!
The duo sang pieces of Sheeran hits "Shape Of You", "Castle On The Hill", "Thinking Out Loud" and "Sing". But it wasn't all Sheeran tracks, who previously said, "I know the whole thing is singing to your tune, but I think I'd feel a bit awkward singing to my song. I think I'd just want to put on some Biggie… I want to put on something really awkward and dirty, like Biggie's song, "Big Booty Hoes," or something like that… and just hear James Corden sing along to that."
Unfortunately, and we really do mean that, the duo did not perform any Biggie tracks nor any rap whatsoever, but they did sing Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself", which Sheeran co-wrote. In addition, they also had a crack at One Direction's debut single "What Makes You Beautiful".
Back in March, Sheeran released his new album Divide, which — surprise to no one — topped the charts in both the US and UK. Overall, it ended up topping the charts in 14 different countries. Clearly the mop-top red head is still on top of the world, and we doubt he'll be coming down any time soon.
