Paul McCartney Did Carpool Karaoke And It Made James Corden Cry

James travelled to his native United Kingdom record a special edition of The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this month - and roped in the legendary Beatles musician to help him out.

The latest carpool karaoke segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden features a full-on legend - none other than Sir Paul McCartney.

The video wraps up with a surprise for local pub patrons, who are treated to a mini McCartney concert ending with a rousing "Hey Jude" singalong.

In a break with Carpool Karaoke tradition, the veteran singer then took the wheel and drove Corden - who appeared visibly starstruck - around the streets of Liverpool. "My dad would be in there (the next room) watching telly, we'd be in here, and we'd just written She Loves You, which was a big Beatles hit". "So I wrote the song 'Let it Be, ' about positivity".

Saudi Arabia: Deal can be done this week to boost oil supply
OPEC's deal to release more supply centres on the idea of returning to 100 per cent compliance with existing, agreed cuts. The U.S. has reimposed sanctions, but it doesn't want its consumers to pay the price for that at the pump.

Stella McCartney to Release Meghan Markle Wedding Dress Replicas
And, like the new British royal, Sofia chose to pull her hair back in a low style too, leaving some soft tendrils at the front. She also gave a nod to Meghan's signature hairstyle: a messy up do with strands escaping around the front section.

Even Corden himself agreed that it was his favourite edition of the show to date. They also sang the music icon's new songs "Come on to Me" and "I Don't Know", which will be featured on his album Egypt Station (out September 7). "I'll never ever forget it. Take a breath and jump in", Corden tweeted on Thurs.

McCartney then explained the origins "Let It Be".

Carpool Karaoke was clearly Corden's breakout, but I like how he's used the segment not as a senseless gag to boost YouTube views, but as a real opportunity to get to know the guests that ride around in the vehicle. They cycled through "A Hard Day's Night", "Love Me Do" and "Back the USSR", as onlookers filled the pub.

After teasing the first song he ever wrote, the rather catchy "I Lost My Little Girl", McCartney set course for a trip down memory lane - as well as the actual Penny Lane, which they completed with a rendition of "Penny Lane".
