From Michelle ObamaAdele, and Gwen Stefani, right up to Lady GagaSia, and Jennifer Hudson, there’s no denying that James Corden has had some seriously badass women join him for his (now) iconic Carpool Karaoke.

But now, finally, the Queen of Pop has entered the building car.

All together now? L-U-V Madonna.

The Late Late Show segment began with a bus cutting up Corden’s blacked-out SUV – much to Madge’s horror.

“Let's drive up next to the bus. I want to give him what's what,” the 58-year-old popstar told the host. When Corden refused, she called him a ‘p**sy’, before advising him: “You let people get away with bad behavior, they're gonna do it again.”

Corden, thankfully, found the perfect way to distract Madonna from clambering out of the car and chasing down the bus driver who had wronged them: cranking up the volume on some of her biggest hits.

From Vogue to Bitch, I’m Madonna, the pair struck some serious poses – and, at one point, Madge began twerking up on the dashboard (much to Corden’s amusement).

Watch it for yourself below:

After singing along to Papa, Don’t Preach and Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Corden managed to steer the conversation to Madonna’s date with the King of Pop himself.

“What was a night out with Michael Jackson like? Or was it a night in?” he asked casually.

Madonna fixed him with an enigmatic smile, before saying: “So, you want me to kiss and tell then, don’t you?”

Cue Corden’s excitable response: “DID you kiss?”

Madge eventually admitted that she and MJ had kissed (with tongue), but only after she’d encouraged him to loosen up with a glass of chardonnay.

“Baby, I've been around,” she told a stunned Corden.

Amidst discussing her family (and dissing Corden’s style), Madge also sang along to mega-hits like Express Yourself, Ray of Light, and Music, before the pair concluded their tour of NYC together.

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.
