AceShowbiz - As he prepares himself to host the forthcoming 2016 Tony Awards, %cJames Corden% invites some Broadway stars to join him for a special edition of Carpool Karaoke. In the latest installment airing during "The Late Late Show with James Corden" on Monday night, June 6, the funnyman first enlists the help of %cLin-Manuel Miranda% as he makes his way to NY's Beacon Theater.
The two rap the opening number from Miranda's "Hamilton" and then tackle some other songs from the hit show. Later as they drive through the streets of New York, they pick up %cAudra McDonald% of "Shuffle Along", %cJesse Tyler Ferguson% of "Fully Committed" and %cJane Krakowski% of "She Loves Me".
The four then team up for an amazing rendition of "Seasons of Love" from the musical "Rent", a dramatic version of "One More Day" from "Les Miserables" and a cover of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You". The guests also kindly offer Corden some advice on hosting the Tonys.
"They want to have a great time. It's a long evening. So just have fun," McDonald tells him. "Belt out a few show tunes... ask them to sing along with you. They'll do it!"
The 2016 Tony Awards is airing on CBS Sunday, June 12 at 8 P.M. E.T. from the Beacon Theater. "Hamilton" leads the nominees with record-breaking 16 nods, including three for Miranda who wrote the music and lyrics as well as stars in the hip-hop musical.
