Ed Sheeran Goes Full Bieber in His Carpool Karaoke

Ed Sheeran is one of the most successful pop stars in the world right now.

James Corden kicked off his week across the pond in peak form: a powerful tribute to his hometown, an interview with Nicole Kidman and Kit Harington, and, as promised, a brand new "Carpool Karaoke" starring Ed Sheeran.

The singer popped malt ball after mall ball into his mouth and soon made it to 47 without slowing down. Some of his previous attempts reached 47 to 52 balls, but Ed managed to surpass that when challenged by James on their vehicle trip. He was only able to do so for a moment before having James pull over so he could spit them all out in the nearest gutter. The footage was then sped up until Ed reached 55 and couldn't go any further, spitting them onto the sidewalk.

"You can probably beat me, actually" Sheeran said.


"You injured my JB!", exclaimed Corden. I was quite an unfortunate looking kid. "I feel like God looked down at me and was like, you need help getting laid, mate".

Sheeran also did acoustic covers of Bieber's "Love Yourself" and One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful", showing off his singing skills.

During the drive, Sheeran competed against Corden to see how many Maltese chocolates he could fit in his mouth and shared a story about a drunken night in Tokyo he shared with Justin Bieber that involved the singers playing golf together. "I had this driving wedge and I [teed up] and I cracked him across the face!"

Meanwhile, The Late Late Show with James Corden has come to London, and producer Matt from The Chris Moyles Show went to see him.
