Music legend Barbra Streisand joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke this week, and this time Corden was the passenger. Streisand picked him up after he discovered a boot on his car, and the pair sang along to some of her most classic tunes.

The songs included "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," which Streisand originally sang with Donna Summer, as well as "The Way We Were" and "Don't Rain on My Parade." They also performed songs from her new album Walls, including "Imagine / What a Wonderful World," and "Don't Lie to Me" — in which she addresses President Donald Trump.


"Every song relates to something about what's going on in these difficult times," Streisand told Corden of her new album. "The only thing I can do is write about it and tweet. People deserve the truth. The truth shall set you free."

And if you can believe it, even an icon like Barbra Streisand gets stage fright. She said it kept her from performing for 27 years, and shared that she doesn't want to disappoint people. Before she goes on stage, she tells herself, "Let go and let God." Meanwhile, before James Corden goes on stage, he pretends he's Barbra Streisand.
