Tom Hanks Joins James Corden To Turn Carpool Karaoke Into School Bus Karaoke

With more than a few students to help them out.

A long list of celebrities joined forces Friday night for XQ Super School Live, a special which aired on ABC, CBS, Fox, and YouTube. Everyone from Justin Timberlake to Lin-Manuel Miranda to Kelly Clarkson was on hand for the event, which, according to Vanity Fair, "invited the public to help rethink the future of American high schools."

Of course, no star-studded TV special would be complete without a little bit of Carpool Karaoke from Late Late Show host James Corden. If you've ever wanted to see Tom Hanks join Corden for the musical segment, you're in luck — but be prepared for something a little different.


It all starts when Hanks picks up Corden in a school bus, which he apparently drives when he's "not on the set" — something the late-night host says is "wildly on brand." Hanks soon asks Corden if it's OK to play some music, and it's not long before the pair is rocking out to Kim Wilde's "Kids in America."

When they get to the song's chorus, the bus is suddenly filled with students to help them sing along. The kids, along with Hanks, are wearing T-shirts that read "WE ARE ALL DREAMERS," a possible reference to the Trump administration's plans to end the DACA program.

Once they arrive at the show, Corden and Hanks deliver an inspiring message about giving kids the "same chance" they had to live out their dreams. "Let's rebuild high school so they can fully realize who they are, and what they're capable of," Corden tells the audience.
