Carpool Karaoke fans are going to have to wait a bit longer to see their favorite celebrities having a good old car jam session.

James Corden chatted with fellow talk show host Ellen DeGeneres about his popular Late Late Show segment, in which stars drive around Los Angeles with Corden, singing and catching up on life. Due to its in-person nature, the series was affected (along with the rest of his show) by the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think it will be a while before we're singing in a car with anybody," Corden explained. "We can't really think of a remote way to do it. It really does rely on two people being in close proximity, so that's alright. It's okay."

Corden did, however, turn the conversation to a more positive note, revealing that when he feels anxious and scared about the state of the world, he starts "to think about the day, whenever that may be, when it is safe to go out again and it's safe for you to go out and dance around your audience and it's safe for me to get in a car with someone."

"I think it's going to be the greatest boom of joy we've ever experienced," he concluded.
