Intrigued by this mobile karaoke experience? Here's how it works: Tune in to any empty FM radio station with no signal, pair your mobile device via Bluetooth (or connect with an aux cord) and queue up your favorite songs from any music or karaoke app. You can enhance your vocals with echo effects and sing for up to six hours at a time before recharging the battery.

(Note that we encourage driving responsibly when using the microphone -- that means being a passenger when using this thing and not distracting your driver while on the road.)
As for the original "Carpool Karaoke," Corden says for now, the future of his wildly popular segment is TBD amid the coronavirus pandemic. "We haven't thought about it at all yet," he said. "I think it might have to wait. Who knows how long, but we've done it like 50 times. I think it's okay to have a little break." You can stream Late Late Show episodes on CBS here, with "Carpool Karaoke" highlights -- from Ariana Grande to Cardi B -- here.
