Back in 2011 George Michael and James Corden performed a comedy skit that would give rise to a phenomenon.
As the world mourns the shock loss of the 80s music legend, we look back at a rarely seen video of George and James belting out Wham's "I'm Your Man."
During an interview with Stephen Colbert, Corden revealed that he came up with the concept after recording a similar comedy sketch with the Faith singer for Comic Relief back in 2011.
“My original idea was to pick George Michael up from prison in a car,” Corden said.
“And then we realised maybe we’ll lose the prison aspect. But what if there’s still some fun for me and George to be in the car and we’ll sing some Wham! songs?”
The late show host who has since preformed Carpool Karaoke with Adele, Elton John and Justin Bieber to name a few, has paid tribute to Michael.
“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period,” Michael’s publicist confirmed.
“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”
Thames Valley Police said South Central Ambulance Service attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire and authorities say there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, according to the BBC.
Elton John who preforms the classic song, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me with the late star leads the dozens of heartfelt tributes shared on social media today by George's contemporaries and those who looked up to the visionary artist.
