After being delayed from an April launch, Apple’s ‘Carpool Karaoke: The Series’ will debut on Apple Music on August 8, the company confirms. Instead of comedian James Corden driving around with celebrities in the original bit on CBS’ ‘The Late Late Show,’ stars from the music, television, film, sports and pop culture worlds will hit the road in pairs (or groups) to generate the show’s comedy and musical bits. Celebrity pairings include Will Smith and James Corden; Miley, Noah, Billy Ray and the entire Cyrus family; Shakira and Trevor Noah; Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams; Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith; John Legend, Alicia Keys and Taraji P. Henson; LeBron James and James Corden; and Michael Strahan and Jeff Gordon (who appear to be driving passengers around in some kind of rickshaw duel).
