Ahead of the full 10-minute clip of Britney singing in the car with James Corden for "Carpool Karaoke" on The Late Late Show which premieres tonight (August 25), producers dropped a 30-second preview showing Brit and Corden singing "Toxic." Problem was, in the bit they used Britney was seen lip syncing the words, which was a troubling sight considering the mission isn't about executing Adele-like vocals, but let go and have fun singing on the road.
Fortunately, one of the show's producers caught wind of the hoopla and decided to clarify she does join in, but the clip that we've seen was their first song together and she needed to warm up to it.
"Britney Spears was a bit shy and got a bit of a shock" The Late Late Show's executive producer Ben Winston explained. He added: "[I] wasn't convinced the star had seen any previous carpool episodes, I think she'd just heard it was a big thing, so she got a bit of a shock."
The "Hard To Forget Ya" singer will also reportedly sing "Baby One More Time," "Sometimes," "Stronger" and "Make Me."
