Watch: James Corden's World Tour of Carpool Karaoke

In his short tenure at the helm of The Late Late Show in the US, British actor, comedian and now talk show host James Corden has managed to go impressively viral. Taking a television show online requires ingenuity, but his innovative Carpool Karaoke skit has made the transition seamlessly. And this week, he has a rather special celebrity in his SUV.

Yes, that’s none other than First Lady Michelle Obama taking James on a tour of The White House. Along the way she points out the Rose Garden, the Oval Office and other key locations on the campus in Washington DC, and the two chat about life after her husband Barack’s presidency, favourite artists and her Secret Service code name – it’s Renaissance, by the way.

FLOTUS’ tour of the White House hasn’t been the only cool stop on Corden’s journey though. He’s travelled around quite a bit to meet his famous celebrity guests…

He’s been to New York’s Broadway with some of its stars…

London with Adele

And of course LA, where his show is filmed, with numerous A-listers

We look forward to wherever in the world James is going to take us next!
