Music, Laughter, and Tears: Adele & James Corden's Carpool Karaoke Experience

Adele, the multi-Grammy award-winning British singer, was the latest guest to grace the popular show "Carpool Karaoke". Hosted by James Corden, the show took the two on a journey through music, laughter, and tears.

The Power of Music: A Journey Through Emotions

Adele opened up about her divorce and revealed that her friendship with James helped her to heal from the split.

During the conversation, she revealed that the verse in one of the songs from her latest album, "I Drink Wine", was inspired by the support she received from James. The song was the result of a six-hour conversation Adele had with James while they were on a family holiday together. "We'd been on vacation together with the kids, and we were on our way home and… I remember I said to you on the way home, 'What's wrong?' You just seemed down," she recalled. "And you let it all out to me and… we were having, what, a six-hour conversation about it? It was like the whole way home.

But it got me thinking, I felt so unsafe with you feeling unsafe… And then I went to the studio a couple of weeks later and I wrote this and I remember I sang it into my phone and I remember I sent it to you and I do remember you saying, 'That's exactly how I was feeling.'

" As the show progressed, Adele and James hit the road and joked about Adele's questionable driving skills. "I'm actually not a brilliant driver, so… I also can't sing without closing my eyes," she said. "I can't believe I just pulled out of your drive and nearly crashed."

An Emotional Farewell

As the show came to an end, Adele expressed her love and appreciation for James, calling him one of her best friends in the world.

"You're one of my best friends in the whole world. I'm gonna miss you so much," Adele said before breaking into tears. "I'm just not ready to come back [to England], otherwise I would come back with you." James, too, was emotional and assured Adele that their friendship "has nothing to do with distance and time." Holding back tears, he called it a "privilege" that Adele was able to understand how he felt and put it into one of her songs.

By the end of the show, both Adele and James were wiping away tears. James reflected on his long-standing friendship with Adele and expressed his gratitude for her presence on the show. "I've known her for a long time, and I consider her a very, very dear friend of mine," he said.

"The show had been on, and she said to me, 'I promise I'll come and do something for you. When we can work it out, I'll do it.' She's not an artist who does a lot of press and promos. She traditionally lets the music speak for itself, so we knew that that was a big thing for us."
