"I grew up in Buckinghamshire, [England], so I never thought I could get to meet Stevie Wonder, let alone sit in a car with him," Corden says about one of the singers he hopes to recruit for his popular 'Late Late Show' segment.

A week after dropping arguably the most star-studded "Carpool Karaoke" yet — with Gwen Stefani riding shotgun and George Clooney and Julia Roberts riding in the back — James Corden is already dreaming of who his next carpool companion might be.

"I grew up in Buckinghamshire, [England], so I never thought I could get to meet Stevie Wonder, let alone sit in a car with him," Corden said of the viral phenomenon that is his late-night singing segment. 

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter who might possibly be the next A-lister helping him navigate through L.A. traffic, Corden said, "My dream 'Carpool' is just the same as everyone else's — Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake — I don't know. We'll see." Corden revealed his picks Wednesday night on the red carpet at the Rebel With a Cause fundraiser in Santa Monica.

Even with the impressive stars who have carpooled with him on his daily commute so far, the modest Late Late Show host does share one name who he believes might be hard to get: "I don't know if Kanye [West] will ever be possible, but we will always try," said Corden.

The host also is surprised at the feedback the segment has been getting, especially the one with Grammy winner Adele rapping to Nicki Minaj verse from "Monster."

"I never thought it would be something that 103 million people would watch online," said Corden. "It just doesn't feel like something that should ever be my life."
