Madonna and James Corden get into the groove for Carpool Karaoke

We’ve had plenty of amazing women join James Corden for his (now) iconic Carpool Karaoke. Think Michelle Obama, Adele, Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, Sia, and Jennifer Hudson, to name just a few.

And now it has been confirmed that the Queen of Pop herself will be clambering into the passenger seat.

Madonna announced the news via Instagram – and, in doing so, also let slip another crucial piece of information; unlike the majority of Carpool Karaoke sessions, Corden will not be taking her for aa spin around Los Angeles.

Instead, they’re shooting on location in the Big Apple itself.

“Riding around Manhattan with this Hunk of Burning Love,” she wrote, sharing a selfie of her and Corden pouting into the camera.

News spread around social media faster than a Ray of Light, with many die-hard Madge fans unable to hide their excitement.

“OMG YASSSSSSSSSS!” wrote one, as another commented: “Literally cannot wait for this.”

While we have no idea which songs Madonna and Corden plan on belting out together, it’s safe to say that some of her biggest hits from the Immaculate Collection are bound to be on the playlist. Think Vogue, Papa Don’t Preach, Like a Virgin, and Material Girl, to name just a few.

And, when you consider that Corden used the ‘prayer hands’ emoji in his own Instagram caption of the same photo, it seems a pretty safe bet that a duet of Like A Prayer is on the cards, too.

As for when the episode will air, details have yet to be announced. But, with the Madonna: Rebel Heart Tour concert film set to air on Showtime 9 December at 9 p.m. ET/PT, we have a feeling that her Carpool Karaoke sesh may be scheduled to air beforehand.

What better way to hype up fans, eh?

While Madonna is undoubtedly a huge coup for Corden, he’s still yet to announce that he’s secured his dream guest.

But, speaking in a new interview with GQ, he let slip that it’s only a matter of time before he lands the one and only Queen Bey herself – Beyoncé.

“It would break the internet. She's on tour right now. We're working on it.”

The Late Late Show with James Corden airs Mondays through Thursdays at 12.37am ET on CBS in the US. Sky1 airs the show in the UK.
