Much like every Carpool Karaoke in existence, from Mariah Carey to One Direction and even the notoriously grumpy Justin Bieber — James Corden's latest succeeds in making everyone involved seem absolutely delightful. On last night's primetime special, the host invited Jennifer Lopez into the passenger's seat. She got in the car wearing a teeny-tiny sweater dress and a pair of thigh-high studded and buckled black leather boots by Giuseppe Zanotti that resembled a sort of straight jacket for wayward feet. What followed was predictably hilarious.
Though the 13-minute clip has the requisite amount of singing — J Lo jams included are the seminal "Jenny From the Block," "Love Don't Cost a Thing," and "Waiting For Tonight" — it also features Jennifer Lopez teaching Corden how to be in a J Lo music video (the trick is lots of face-touching), as well as the fact that Jennifer Lopez has the personal cell phone numbers of Demi Lovato, Chris Brown, Bradley Cooper, Christiano Ronaldo, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Leonardo DiCaprio, the latter of which results in an amazing prank text around the 10:30-minute mark.
