The host of the Late, Late Show James Corden is leaving the decision whether or not to air Chester Bennington’s Carpool Karaoke segment up to his family.
The episode was shot just days before the Linkin Park frontman committed suicide on July 20.

“We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled. We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don’t think there’s any other way we could deal with it, really. It’s completely up to them and that’s a conversation we haven’t even thought about having right now… It’s a tragedy,” stated Corden.
Carpool Karaoke: The Series was launched as a spinoff on Apple Music, but we won’t always get to see Corden since the show will also focus on pairing guests with each other instead, according to the Independent, U.K.
Will Smith leads off the program, released on August 8, not only singing but revealing that in response to Will playing Barack Obama said that he has the ears for it.
