In an interview with BuzzFeed on Monday, Corden talked about Ed's appearance: "He gets his guitar out, and kind of goes rogue, and does songs that I didn't even know we were going to do in the car, and we had to cut quite a lot where it was getting to a point where it may have been, like, 20 minutes long — but my god, it was amazing."

It started with Corden managing to absolutely nail the rap from the middle of Sheeran's "Sing".

Corden told BuzzFeed that he does practice the songs in "Carpool Karaoke" a lot: "My journeys into work and home will always just be a playlist of who's coming next."

Corden also said this, which made me realise for the first time why the hell they call this "Carpool Karaoke".

I know that sounds obvious, but there we go.

And then Corden asked Sheeran this.

Corden bailed at 26 Maltesers.

But Sheeran just kept going way past 25.

Way, way, way, way, way, way past 25 Maltesers.

He managed to get to 55 and immediately reached for the car door.

Lovely.

He also said that he once met up with Justin Bieber in Tokyo, took him to a dive bar, and ended up drunk on a golf course.

Bieber was obviously fine afterwards: "He was actually really cool about it."

And then they both covered "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction.

Sheeran's "Carpool Karaoke" was shown in an episode of The Late Late Show, which this week was filmed in London.

Off-camera, Corden encouraged the crowd to be upbeat and proud in front of the cameras: "I remember reading the news ... and seeing the news reporting that everyone is terrified and really, I really I think this is the time to show everyone that this really isn't the case."
