James Corden has had an amazing run with his "Carpool Karaoke" sketch so far. The top two dozen segments from The Late Late Show with guests such as Adele, Justin Bieber, One Direction and Sia have racked up nearly 1.4 billion views to date on YouTube and the bit just made its jump to Apple Music for Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

That's all great, but we want more. Sure, Madonna, Mariah, Selena, Gaga, Britney and Ed Sheeran have already taken a ride with the amiable British host/musical superfan. But with weekly editions available for download -- with new, Corden-free segments featuring Miley Cyrus and family, Daily Show host Trevor Noah, Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, John Legend and Alicia Keys, Will Smith, Metallica, ShakiraBlake Shelton, John Cena, Chelsea Handler, Ariana GrandeJoe JonasCamila CabelloTyrese, Ludacris, Jessica Alba, Jada Pinkett Smith, Ice Cube, and many others, our thirst for bold-named riders still hasn't been slaked just yet.

Here are 12 passengers we'd love to see Corden harmonize in traffic with on his show:

Adam Lambert

Imagine the vocal heights -- and Queen rock-outs -- the former American Idol star (and resident Freddie Mercury fill-in) could have in the capacity of an SUV? 

Christina Aguilera

Corden's had Britney, Madonna, Gaga, Mariah and Katy as a passenger -- but how could you not invite one of the greatest voices of her generation to play in traffic? Aguilera is seemingly working on her long-awaited follow-up to 2012 Lotus, so the timing is perfect!

Vin Diesel

The Fast & Furious star just can't quit karaoke. From his emotional covers of Rihanna and Tove Lo to his tear-jerking take on "See You Again" for late friend and costar Paul Walker at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, the fast ride-loving Diesel is the perfect "Carpool" pick for so many reasons.

Fifth Harmony

They might need a minivan to contain this much vocal firepower, but a spin with 5H is definitely worth it.

Former President Obama

The former First Lady has already had her chance to bust out some Destiny's Child, Stevie Wonder and Missy Elliott's "This is For My Girls." Considering the former president has killed singing "Amazing Grace" and Al Green, this one is a slam dunk.

The Hemsworth Brothers

All of them. Can they sing? Who cares? Hearts (and phones) would melt if Chris, Luke and Liam all packed into a compact car for a session with Corden. Talk about ratings gold.

Nicki Minaj

We've already seen Adele bust a bit of her favorite Nicki rhymes, so why not get the real deal in the hot seat? Corden would lose his mind singing "Anaconda" with Nick.

Taylor Swift

How has TSwift not taken a spin with Corden yet? The singer is working on her next album, and while she's massive enough that she doesn't really have to do anything, it's hard to believe that the sight of her harmonizing with James on "Shake it Off" wouldn't break the bank. 

Tom Cruise

He's still arguably one of the biggest movie stars in the world, loves to play around on late night, and if you saw his unhinged performance in Rock of Ages, you know TC has some pipes. 

Miranda Lambert

Other than Carrie Underwood, Corden's passenger seat has been remarkably light on country talent. If James couldn't shed a tear belting "The House That Built Me," who could?

Dave Grohl

The always amiable Foo Fighters frontman has more fun than just about anyone in rock. Or pop. Or life. Make it so.

Sam Smith

Smith is finishing work on his second album, he's the kind of British superstar Corden can't resist and something tells us they're grabbed a pint at some point. We're just going to assume this one will happen.
