Britney Spears had never seen Carpool Karaoke before segment, says producer
Apparently, Britney Spears really didn’t know what to expect when she got in the car with James Corden.
At least, that’s the vibe that The Late Late Show executive producer Ben Winston got while filming Spears’ Carpool Karaoke segment.
“I don’t think she’d actually watched it before, I’m not convinced she’d actually seen Carpool,” Winston said on BBC’s 5 Live radio show. “I think she just heard that it was quite a big thing, so maybe she just got a bit of a shock.”
The teaser for Spears’ segment, which was posted earlier this week, shows the singer laughing and dancing along while Corden sings her hit “Toxic,” and giving the talk show host a playful hit on the shoulder when he makes a joke about Spears’ sons having seen her Vegas show.
That may not be enough to go off of, so viewers will just have to wait for the full Carpool Karaoke video to air on Thursday’s The Late Late Show with James Corden to see if they agree with Winston’s guess or not.
