We’re at that time of the year, folks, only a matter of days until Christmas is upon us, so we’re being inundated with Christmas carols, Christmas albums, and Christmas specials of your favourite programs. Of course, this meant that everyone’s favourite late night host, James Corden, got to throw together a special edition of his ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment featuring none other than Harry Styles.

Since its first premiere in March of 2015, ‘Carpool Karaoke’ has undoubtedly been one of the most popular segments on The Late Late Show With James Corden, with many of its episodes racking up millions upon millions of viewers, so needless to say, it’s a bit of a big deal to appeal in that car seat.

Following on from his first appearance on the segment earlier this year, which saw him performing a bunch of originals and covers, Harry Styles has once again returned to the car seat with James Corden, this time for a special Christmas edition. (Well, let’s be fair, it was filmed at the same time as the last one, but let’s just believe Harry made a special return trip, alright?)

Appearing alongside clips of a number of other huge names who were featured throughout the year, including Katy Perry, Usher, Bruno Mars, The Foo Fighters, Miley Cyrus, P!nk, Sam Smith, Fifth Harmony, Ed Sheeran, and Kelly Clarkson, Styles managed to steal the show on this year’s ‘Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town’ episode for some pretty obvious reasons.

Yes, despite the noticeable lack of mistletoe, Harry Styles used his appearance on the program to further push his agenda of being one of pop music’s most beloved celebs. While James Corden might have rubbed shoulders with countless celebs during his time, we’re pretty sure that this is going to be on ‘Carpool Karaoke’ that he’ll remember for quite some time to come.
