James Corden’s 10 Best Carpool Karaoke Segments, From Justin Bieber to Adele (Videos)

10. Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Chilis showed a lot of skin in this one, but the most exciting moment might’ve happened off camera, when Anthony Kiedis said later on a radio show that he tried to help save a baby that had stopped breathing while ambulances arrived on scene.

9. Ed Sheeran – This “Carpool Karaoke” could’ve ended badly. Ed Sheeran shoves 55 malt balls into his mouth before choking to death, he shares a story about hitting Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club, and he even does an acoustic karaoke version of “Thinking Out Loud.”

8. Jennifer Hudson – Jennifer Hudson doesn’t have the same hits as a lot of the names on this list, but she lends this clip more of a hangout vibe despite fewer songs. Part of her appeal is her ability to launch her voice into the stratosphere even as she’s ordering through

With a tour, a new record deal, a new video and two brand-new songs performed on “Saturday Night Live,” it looks like Childish Gambino’s forthcoming forth album may be arriving sooner than later. Gambino — a.k.a. Donald Glover — turned his appearance on the show into a multi-faceted promotional vehicle, serving as both host and musical guest and appearing in nearly every skit on the show. Filmed in a large warehouse, the video features a shirtless Glover dancing comically between scenes that alternate between humorous (his dancing and facial expressions) and disturbing.

Get to Know Singer-Songwriter Ella Mai Before She Takes Over All Your Playlists

If you aren't familiar with Ella Mai already, chances are you will be very soon.

This rising contemporary R&B singer is just 23 years old, and after a childhood spent in London, Mai moved to NYC at age 12 with her family. Once she graduated high school, however, she returned to the UK to pursue her music career, and it's a decision that's clearly paid off in spades. The singer first gained international recognition in 2016 after the release of Time, the first in her Ep trilogy. The project includes the single "She Don't," featuring Ty Dolla $ign, and if you don't have it on repeat already, be warned: one listen is all it takes to get you hooked.

I recently had the chance to catch up with Mai hot off the release of her new music video for her single "Boo'd Up." From her favorite '90s jams, future collaborations, and her ultimate festival lineup,

Dancing With the Stars: Athletes Season 26 Episode 1 Review: 2601

After 25 seasons, we've seen plenty of athletes strut their stuff on the dance floor, and many of them went home with Mirrorball trophies, so it's no shock that Dancing With the Stars: Athletes Season 26 Episode 1 is showcasing all athletes.

The twist? They've only got four weeks to strut their stuff and prove they're worthy of that Mirrorball, and, in the first time in Dancing With the Stars history, two were sent home at the end of tonight's premiere.

With the rockin' "We Will Rock You" opener, complete with flags and pom poms, the fast pace will keep everyone on their toes!

Here's how it all turned out...

Chris Mazdzer and pro, Witney Carson danced a salsa to “Mr. Put It Down” by Ricky Martin featuring Pitbull. Witney may have admired Chris' point, but it was more difficult not to admire his hip movement.

‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ recap: Which sports stars were cut from the team in the season premiere of ‘DWTS’? [Updating Live]
“Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” premiered on Monday night, April 30, for the first week of its abbreviated four-week season bringing together 10 sports stars to compete for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. With so little time for the contestants to compete, no one could breathe easy on night one: the judges gave their scores, and the viewers voted during the show to decide who would be eliminated at the end of the evening. So what happened? Scroll down to find out in our live blog in which we discuss the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

The 10 athletes who danced in the season premiere included three figure skaters, two basketball players (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Arike Ogunbowale), a baseball player (Johnny Damon), a softball player (Jennie Finch) a football player (Josh Norman), a luger (Chris Mazdzer) and a snowboarder (Jamie Alexander).

‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’: Week 1 dances and songs revealed!

ABC has revealed the routines and songs for Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” premiere, which will have three cha-chas, three foxtrots, three salsas and one Viennese waltz on tap. Hope the Viennese waltz doesn’t feel too lonely. All four styles are typical Week 1 dances on the show, but this is no typical “Dancing” season. It’s four weeks long, and more than one couple will be eliminated at the end of the premiere based on judges’ scores and fan votes cast during the live Et/Ct broadcast.

Basically, it’s may not be a good thing to go last — aka the usual pimp spot on the show. ABC did not reveal the performance order. Here is the full list.

‘American Idol’: Which of the Top 14 was robbed of a place in the Top 10 on season 16?

The Monday April 23 episode of the ABC revival of “American Idol” saw the Top 14 reduced to the Top 10. Six of the singers continuing on in the show — Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Maddie Poppe, Catie Turner and Michael J. Woodard — learnt that they numbered among America’s favorites and earned places in the Top 10 based on their performances on Sunday’s show.

The other eight contestants were told by host Ryan Seacrest that the three judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — would choose just four of them to move forward in the competition based on the songs that they sung on Monday’s show. The four artists that the panel put through to the Top 10 were: Dennis Lorenzo, Jurnee Siani, Michelle Sussett and Ada Vox.

That mean elimination for Jonny Brenns, Marcio Donaldson, Garrett Jacobs and Mara Justine. Which of these four do you think was
