    During the 59th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Apple released the first trailer for its Carpool Karaoke series coming soon to Apple Music.

    Carpool Karaoke: The Series, based on the popular segment from The Late Late Show with James Corden, will feature 16 celebrity pairings "riding along in a car together as they sing tunes from their personal playlists" and "surprise fans who don't expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over."


    Apple said the series will feature James Corden, Will Smith, Billy Eichner, Metallica, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, John Cena, Shaquille O'Neal, and many more. The series is expected to have a different host every episode.

    Apple purchased the rights to Carpool Karaoke, produced by James Corden, Ben Winston, and Eric Pankowski, in July 2016 in an effort to drive users towards Apple Music. The series will consist of 16 half-hour episodes, and Apple's version will reportedly feature a format "that is more of an interview series."

    I'm so glad James Corden is in an episode!
    I'm still not confident that the other episodes with work well without him, but maybe the different format will make it work.

    On another note, they seem to be really promoting this. The trailer was posted on 2 YouTube accounts with a total of over 13M subscribers and even created a Twitter account for the series.

    Is it just me, or do some of them seem to be riding in self-driving cars? Where are the steering wheels? Some shots seem to roomy to be the middle row.

    Hmmm, looks like they might do a decent job with this. Some decent names in there.

    Wow. It's rare these days to find ad on national TV that is nothing but annoying.

    Doesn't look like it has the relaxed charm of the original show. I'll be surprised if is superior to what has become a cult & popular hit.

    Most of these types of shots for TV and movies are done with the car on a very low trailer, the driver isn't actually driving. Don't know if this is the case here though.

    Oh good, they remembered to include Michael Strahan. Now there's a guy you don't see on TV much.

    Even more horrific than imagined. On behalf of the UK, we apologise for James Corden (and Piers Morgan).

    Some good talent in there, but what I'm really looking forward to is Planet of the Apps.

    Good job Apple... Let's take a stupid segment from a late night show and develop it into a whole show. House of Cards, watch out!

    Apple picked this up way too late. Corden has already run the bit into the ground and people are tired of it.
