Barbra Streisand’s Carpool Karaoke ride is everything you hoped it would be

Barbra Streisand’s Carpool Karaoke ride is everything you hoped it would be

James Corden let Barbra Streisand drive him to work during Thursday's new Carpool Karaoke instalment on The Late Late Show.

The duo sung a variety of Streisand hits like "No More Tears", "The Way We Were", "What a Wonderful World" and "Don't Rain on My Parade".

After picking Corden up from the side of the road after his vehicle has been booted for unpaid tickets, Streisand admits that she's had to retake her driving test a few times recently because she was unable to pass her renewal test. Whoops! And today, she releases her new album Walls, which features the new anti-Trump song "Don't Lie To Me". "If this is how I go out, I'll take it... died at the hands of Barbra Streisand". "I just don't want to disappoint people".

"Siri is saying my name wrong". Corden did not seem all that nervous about singing next to her, which is surprising.

In fact, she didn't perform for 27 years because of that reason.

Barbra Streisand may be an EGOT legend, but the "Funny Girl" star still gets stage fright. "I don't get nervous nervous, but I don't enjoy it", she explained. You'd think after 50 years, people would pronounce it correctly! "So what's a better way to change my name than by speaking to Apple?" "Streisand" with a soft S, like sand on the beach. "I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name, finally, with the next update". "All I can do is write about it", she says.
