Watch Adele take a karaoke car ride with James Corden, the most charming man in late night

It's almost annoying how talented he is, isn't it?

On "The Late, Late Show with James Corden" Wednesday night, the late night host performed his carpool karaoke routine with "the female Phil Collins," known to the rest of the world as Adele.

"Squad on squad, you'd kick Taylor Swift's squad's ass," Corden informed Adele as their trip began. "If you put together a proper 'squad,' it'd be like you, Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence -- she'd bring Amy Schumer, Emma Stone. Taylor Swift's squad would shit themselves."

"But they're Amazonians," Adele replied, "they're all so tall. They'd kick us with their long legs."

"Yeah, but you'd fight dirtier," Corden said.

The two also sang a number of Adele's hits, including "Hello," "Into the Deep," and "Someone Like You," in which Corden cemented his status -- with both Adele and, in a just world, the American people -- as the most annoyingly talented and charming man in late night.
