The English actor, writer, producer and late-night TV show host is a man on the rise as he celebrates his 38th birthday.

James Corden was well-known in his home country for creating and starring in TV shows like Gavin & Stacey, appearing on stage in plays and musicals, and hosting sports panel show A League Of Their Own, but his profile has gone to another level since he was named Craig Ferguson’s replacement as host of the US talk show The Late Late Show in late 2014.

In particular, Corden’s segment Carpool Karaoke has become a viral phenomenon, drawing talent from the likes of Adele to Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber and Nick Jonas and… umm, Michelle Obama, to sing with him as he drives around LA in a Range Rover. Weirdly compelling, it showcases Corden’s natural talents for performing and singing to best effect. Our pick of his top 5 Carpool Karaokes is below…

With the always adorable Adele in rainy London… didn’t know she could rap.

With Aussie sensation Sia, silly wigs n’all…

Weirdly, we’ve always wanted to see Stevie Wonder singing Superstitious while driving (well, being a passenger) somewhere in a car…

Great songs (and costumes) with a that-gen and next-gen English entertainer…

Now this is a car you’d like to be stuck in a traffic jam inside (even with a shirtless Corden)…
