Adele told James Corden she used to pretend to be Geri Halliwell
Adele is the latest star to take part in one of James' celebrity duets - and this may be his best signing yet. She told the British comic that the Spice Girls featured in a "really important moment of my life". Explaining their appeal, she said it "Girl power and just five ordinary girls who did so well and just got out".
Asked which girl she was, the Grammy winner replied: "I was always Geri. I love that and then she left. It was the first time I was truly heartbroken.
James then turned on the music to the Spice hit Wannabe, inviting his guest to accompany him with her powerhouse vocals. Geri returned the compliment on Twitter, saying: "Ahh Adele we love you" with a heart emoticon.
The singer joined her fellow Brit for his Carpool Karaoke skit
The Late, Late Show host released a video clip from the collaboration on Monday, before showing the full segment on his talk show on Wednesday night.
The video starts with James sitting in a car in Britain, supposedly outside her home. Referencing last year's mega-hit, he calls her and asks: "Hello, it's me. I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet?"
After the 27-year-old joins him in the car the pair belt out her record-breaking singles Hello and Rolling in the Deep. Talk then turns to the singer's new bob.
Adele is the latest in a long line of stars who have joined the talk show host to participate in the popular segment of his show, with One Direction recently performing a rendition of their biggest hits. Previous guests have included Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and Stevie Wonder, who kindly rang James' wife to sing: "I just called to say James loves you".
The singer's Carpool Karaoke appearance comes as she prepares to embark on a nine-month long tour that includes 105 shows across 18 countries, starting in Belfast at the end of February.
