James Corden recruits One Direction, Jason Derulo, Justin Bieber and more

After James Corden has already given us a wonderful early Christmas present with “Carpool Karaoke” by One Direction, he is now putting another festive surprise in our Christmas stocking.

In fact, it's a treat that James seems to have been planning for some time. TA-DAH:

Yes, the Late Late Show host enlisted a ton of celebrities to join his Carpool Karaoke segment to help him sing along to “Joy To The World” – Santa hats included.

Because nothing is more Christmassy than a long car ride where Christmas songs blare from the car radio, your parents argue about the directions, and your siblings fire little candy canes at you for four hours while you sit practically in the fetal position in the middle seat.

But in the end, it's worth it when you sit in front of your aunt's crackling fire and eat fried potatoes until you feel sick, isn't it?

One Direction, Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, Jason Derulo, Carrie Underwood, Iggy Azalea and Rod Stewart all appear in the clip, along with Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts.


Our favorite moments include Iggy Azalea's impromptu Christmas rap and One Direction and James telling a couple smooching on the sidewalk to find a room.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL and thanks, James, for the great Carpool Karaoke sessions so far.
