Are you a fan of Barbra Streisand?

James Corden let Barbra Streisand drive him to work during Thursday's new Carpool Karaoke instalment on The Late Late Show. Corden, however, almost had second thoughts about his A-list assist, as Streisand proceeded to detail how when recently required to retake the written driver's test, she failed. The idea of Streisand driving around Los Angeles rattled Corden even more when she recalled the moment she thought of giving up driving completely. Streisand also explained her decades-long absence from the stage and how she was able to get Apple's Siri to pronounce her name correctly. "I found myself turning into an up ramp of a highway and the cars were coming down".

Corden joins her on "The Way We Were", "Imagine/What A Wonderful World", and "Don't Rain On My Parade", and "Walls" from her new album.

"It this is how I go out, I'll take it".

Barbra Streisand was in the driver's seat for her turn at Carpool Karaoke, and the anecdotes exchanged were just as entertaining as the songs sung. "All I can do is write about it", she says. She talked about the time she convinced Apple's Tim Cook to change the way Siri pronounced her name. The thing that stands out the most is how much she enjoyed herself.
