James Corden and Lin-Manuel Miranda earn standing ovation for Carpool Karaoke

Written by

Theater folks kinda expected the Tony Awards to cold open on June 12 with Time Out cover boy James Corden, Liza Minelli and Barbra Streisand singing “There’s No Business Like Show Business” in a Prius going up Broadway to the Beacon Theatre. But we were pleasantly surprised in the wee hours this morning. For his latest edition of "Carpool Karaoke," Corden got behind the wheel in NYC with none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda to harmonize on excerpts from Hamilton. After that, they stopped to pick up (wait for it) Broadway luminaries Audra McDonald, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jane Krakowksi. This ended the only way it can: With a group bellow of “One Day More” from Les Misérables. How can Corden possibly top that for the actual ceremony?
