How come I don't know this guy?" and I'm sure a lot of people did, but-- - Lots of people still thinking that every day. Yeah, that's the truth. [audience laughter] - It is amazing that you were here doing this talk show and a lot of people didn't know who you were, and you're doing a fantastic job, congratulations. - Thank you very much. Well, cheers. [cheers and applause] Thank you. [cheers and applause] You have such an amazing audience. - Don't I? I know. - The most incredible audience I've ever seen. I was watching everybody dance, and-- [cheers and applause] They're amazing! - I do. - They're incredible. [cheers and applause] But the truth is--I mean, thank you for your lovely comments, but we owe our show--I think, as so many other TV shows do, and I'm not just saying this because I'm here, I've said this ever since we moved here and when we talked about our show in terms of atmosphere and environment that we wanted to create, we would talk about your show and what you've done here and I don't know if our show would exist without your show, 'cause I'd never seen anyone do a show where it was like, "Oh, we're just gonna have a great time every day." - Yeah. - And you did that. [cheers and applause] And, uh-- And yeah, and so to-- - Thanks. - To be here on your show now-- Like I've, you know, looking at this lovely wooden--you know-- - So let's talk about this Karoke Carpool thing you do. It's really clever. So you have people in the car, - Yeah. And you had Stevie Wonder, You had Justin Bieber. You have all these people, And you're driving-- you're actually driving. - Yeah. - And singing. - Yes. - How fun is that? - It's great. It's amazing. We thought about it-- myself, my best friend Ben-- There we go, look, yeah. I mean, can you imagine, three hours I was in the car with Stevie Wonder. We were only going to be in there an hour. He just wanted to keep going. - Yeah, I know. You did so many songs. - Yeah, he was like, "Come on, let's do another one." I'm like, "Okay, Stevie Wonder." But, um...we... [audience laughter] - And he called your wife, and then-- - He called my wife and sang "I just called to say James loves you," which made me cry. - Yeah, I know. That was really sweet. I mean, that's something I'm very jealous of. What a great idea, then I think, "I wish I would have thought of that: driving around," because everyone sings in the car but imagine singing with, you know, Stevie Wonder. - Well, it's very nice that you say that, because we have ideas probably every day where someone will go, "Oh! We should do this," and I lose track of the amount of times someone'll go, "Yeah, no, they did that on 'Ellen.'" And we go... Genuinely. - Well, you got one that I didn't think of, so-- Rod Stewart, I mean-- It's like, what a great idea. - Well, the thing with it is-- you know. Like, a lot of these people-- These huge stars, they travel with huge teams. They have lots and lots of people with them. So suddenly, they're just on their own, and it's just us in the car, and I think there's something very joyful about seeing someone sing their hits in the environment that we sing them in... - Yeah. All the time. Do you know what I mean? - Yeah. - Yeah. When are you going to come and do it? - The karaoke thing? - Wouldn't you love to see Ellen in the car, doing a Carpool Karaoke? [cheers and applause] Truly. - You have singers on there. - Yeah, we have--we have-- - No. Let me say, thank you so much for volunteering me, but-- [audience laughter] I'm not a singer. The whole point of it is, you're in the car with someone who might be on the radio, and you actually sing-- you have a great voice-- so you need to be in the car singing with somone who sings. - Sure, but, I've seen-- and you've got skills, so what I'm saying is, there is no one else on the planet, artist-- you would have an exemption to be the only non-singer we would ever do it with. - Okay, well-- - Truly. [cheers and applause] Let me think about that. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] Let me think. [cheers and applause] Maybe, you know, you can give me a ride home one day, and I'll do it while I'm in the car. - Sure, why not? I mean, it really is that easy. One time we did it with Jennifer Hudson. I genuinely drove her to work. - Well-- - Yeah. - That's a great idea. - Yeah, it's-- - That'll save me some gas, that's great, all right.
