Auto Tunes


I'll wager that most of you are familiar with James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, a
— really, the — standout feature of his brief tenure as host of The Late Late Show on CBS. You’ve probably already seen its latest installment, in which Corden drives around Manhattan with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Audra MacDonald, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Jane Krakowski. So you don’t need me to link to it.

But I just did anyway.

Nor do you need me to tell you that Corden will host the 70th Annual Tony Awards telecast, in which Miranda’s smash-hit musical Hamilton is nominated for a record
16 awards, on that same network this coming Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.

But I just did that anyway, too.

So what can I tell you that you don’t know?

Maybe that Parade ran an interview with Corden in last Sunday’s issue you might like
if you’re interested in some background on the guy. Or that The Hollywood Reporter ran an interview with him in its latest issue as well.

Or that I was going to simply dump the above links into a Siteseeing roundup until
the groaner of a title for this post hit me.

Or that if you think “Auto Tunes” is bad you should be glad I rejected my original
title: “Carpool Tonal Syndrome”.
