James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” has brought more joy and delight into 2016 than any other late-night segment, but the mastermind has one more trick up his sleeve. When he hosted Adele, Lady Gaga, Elton John, and more, Corden carefully procured B-roll footage of the stars singing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” Just in time for the holiday, the Late Late Show released a compilation of music’s biggest artists singing the world’s favorite contemporary Christmas song.
