The official announcement touting Colbert’s lineup also promised “special guests and surprises” along the way. The Late Show will air live from New York, followed by a special edition of The Late Late Show With James Corden. Corden has already announced at least one very special guest: Elton John, who will take part in Corden’s famous “Carpool Karaoke” segment that has become one of his signature bits.

Super Bowl 50 airs Sunday, Feb. 7, on CBS.
