James Corden’s Monday primetime “Carpool Karaoke” special was blessed by Christina Aguilera’s golden voice — and a surprise appearance by Melissa McCarthy’s, well, normal voice.
Before the “Life of the Party” lead popped up from the backseat of Corden’s Range Rover to rap some Redman, Aguilera and the “Late Late Show” host talked about those stacked “Mickey Mouse Club” days. Remember that cast? It included Aguilera, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and others.
When Corden asked if she was into a young Gosling, Aguilera responded, “I think there were crushes, but I wasn’t on the train.”
The CBS personality took that cagey answer to mean she liked Timberlake instead. It sounds like she definitely did, but let’s let Aguilera awkwardly stumble through a non-answer, shall we?
“Um, I think, well, there was, there was like a– me and Britney, well, you know, well, now, you know– there was like a thing back then,” she stammered. “Oh my God, you’re going in.”
“He had swag, I have to say,” Xtina finally admitted of JT.
Back to Gosling: “I know Ryan pretty much had a crush on Britney,” Aguilera added.
The equally dreamy Justin Timberlake ruined that — but before you feel too bad for the “La La Land” star, we’re pretty sure he’s made up for lost time by now.
Watch the video above, which as promised includes McCarthy rapping Redman’s verse on Aguilera’s “Dirrty.”
