Elton John's Carpool Karaoke Is Here: Watch the 'Corden' Clip

Hey, if we're going to get a new Carpool Karaoke video from the Late Late Show with James Corden every single week, we're not gonna complain. Especially if the caliber of stars is gonna stay high enough for Elton John to be the latest.

On Sunday night's post–Super Bowl episode, Corden took a ride with the 68-year-old Sir Elton to bust out energetic duets of “Tiny Dancer,” “Your Song,”“Crocodile Rock,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “I’m Still Standing" and, yeahhhh, The Lion King's "Circle of LIfe." Along the way, they throw on some perfectly Eltonian feather boas and shades.

In the wonderful Brit-on-Brit banter (a great follow-up to the Chris Martin and Adele editions), Elton shared a touching bit about his children with husband David Furnish:

"They've been amazing. I haven't had one second in Zachary or Elijah's life where I've felt that they've been getting on my nerves. And I can’t believe I’m sitting in the car telling you this, 'cause 10 years ago, if you'd've told me I'd be saying this, I would've said you're crazy. But it’s changed my life. And I thought I was too old to be a dad, and no, I’m not too old to be a dad. You’re not too old to do anything. And hose kids have changed my life completely; changed our life completely.”

Elton John's 32nd studio album, Wonderful Crazy Night, dropped on Friday, Feb. 5.
