Paul McCartney Makes James Corden Emotional in 'Carpool Karaoke'

James travelled to his native United Kingdom record a special edition of The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this month - and roped in the legendary Beatles musician to help him out.

Fresh off the announcement of his upcoming new album Egypt Station, featuring "I Don't Know" and "Come On to Me", Paul McCartney joined James Corden on the Late Late Show to sing some hits in the middle of traffic and to give an impromptu tour of some historic Beatles-related sites in Liverpool.

The video wraps up with a surprise for local pub patrons, who are treated to a mini McCartney concert ending with a rousing "Hey Jude" singalong. "Can you please, please help me" before joining Paul in a rendition of Drive My Car.

Later in the clip, they're seen taking a visit to Macca's family home, where he hasn't been in over 50 years.

"Your music is so full of positivity and joy and a message of love and togetherness", Corden told the celebrated singer.

Even Corden himself agreed that it was his favourite edition of the show to date. This week, however, the British comedian is airing his show from London, and he recruited a very special passenger for what Today calls the "most emotional yet" of all singalong sessions.

When the 18-time Grammy victor explained to Corden that The Beatles' "Let It Be" was inspired by a dream he had about his mother, the late-night host started tearing up.

We never thought we'd get emotional watching an episode of "Carpool Karaoke", but here we are. "I didn't feel it coming".

Describing how he and Lennon had played She Loves You to his father, McCartney recalls him asking if they could change the refrain to "yes, yes, yes" because there were already too many Americanisms in common use.
