When the Sixties-set comedy transferred to New York from London – where Corden got thunderingly good reviews – American critics fell over themselves with superlatives but the actor had been up against tough opposition in the Tonys and was clearly shocked when his name was read out.
Almost teary and a bit stuttery, Corden could only gush about how he was “overwhelmed” to be mentioned in the same breath as other nominees James Earl Jones, Frank Langella, John Lithgow and “my favourite actor in the world” Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Lovato chimes in with, "Miley [Cyrus] and then Selena [Gomez] and then back with Miley.""But this is all during the time that you're wearing the old purity ring...it's not anymore," Corden added. "Jonas replied, "I had a real relationship with an adult and I fell in love actually and I decided it was time for me to take it off... "But it wasn't all a grill session for the hilarious segment.
The group also jokes about starting a new band and they try their luck at street music out of Corden's car while tourists and onlookers film them as they do a rendition of "Confident."Lovato teased clips from inside her ride with the late-night host and her Future Now Tour buddy earlier today on social media, writing, "So f--king excited for #Carpool Karaoke tonight…you guys are gonna love @j_corden and I grilling @Nick Jonas"Jonas then added on his own account, "Helping some friends get to work tonight on the @Late Late Show."Lovato and Jonas join the ranks of the Carpool Karaoke artists that came before them, including Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, One Direction (all four members), Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Adele, Elton John, Sia, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, and Justin Bieber—twice!And, for the record, if you loved what you heard tonight on Corden's Carpool Karaoke, be sure to check out the upcoming Future Now Tour beginning on June 29. In late April, both Jonas and Lovato explained via Twitter that they were cancelling their shows in Charlotte and Raleigh over North Carolina's HB2 law."After much thought and deliberation, we have decided to cancel our Honda Civic Tour: Future Now shows in Raleigh and Charlotte," the performers shared on social media.That was the old, arrogant Corden and the actor has already credited Julia, who has worked as a TV producer and for the charity Save The Children, for making him a better person.His Tony Award speech has clearly emphasised the point.As well as his conceited Bafta behaviour, he had an ugly award ceremony spat with Patrick Stewart, chatted up Lily Allen in front of the cameras and made some rather bad taste comments about a made-up sex life with Keira Knightley.
Even his Gavin & Stacey co-star Rob Brydon took him to one side and suggested he was in danger of becoming an idiot.
But almost as soon as we all started hailing the jovial actor as the country’s greatest comic find he started behaving, as he later put it, “like an oaf”.
Success went to his head and most of it was played out on air for all to see.
Lovato and Jonas have clearly been friends for a long time, because she's hilariously comfortable making fun of him, and he just sits there and takes it.
It's not all roasting, though: they also sang some of Lovato and Jonas' songs, as well as Nick's brother Joe's song "Cake By the Ocean," before getting out of the car and busking on Hollywood Boulevard. Lovato is very likable, even when she's having a coughing fit.
