Carpool Karaoke: Ariana Grande, John Cena, Will Smith tune up in series teaser

Posted on

Ariana Grande, Will Smith, and John Cena are among the celebrities hitting the road — and hopefully, the high notes — in the first teaser for Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

Based on James Corden’s popular Late Late Show segment, the series will shift gears slightly by featuring a different pair of celebs each episode (rather than having Corden host each one) and occasionally getting out of the car.

The new video is set to the sounds of Grande’s “Focus” and features her riding around with Seth MacFarlane, Cena beatboxing and shooting hoops with Shaquille O’Neal, and Smith crashing a wedding with Corden. Other team-ups include John Legend and Alicia Keys, Chelsea Handler and Blake Shelton, and Metallica and Billy Eichner.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series will stream on Apple Music, marking the service’s first video series. A premiere date has yet to be announced. Watch the teaser above.
