[Updated 15 January 2016] If you've watched the video above, you'd know that Adele has amazing rapping skills and nailed Nicki Minaj's Monster flawlessly. The performance was so good, even Nicki had to give Adele praise for it. 


Harry Styles, who joined a previous segment of Carpool Karaoke, was also stunned by Adele's chops even though his tweet sounded a little lackluster, in our opinion. 

Adele's first heartbreak Geri Halliwell, on the other hand, said all we needed to say.

[Updated 14 January 2016] The full video for Adele and James Corden's carpool karaoke session is here! James harmonises to her amazing vocals in Hello, much to Adele's surprise, and she reveals a little later on in the video that she played the drums in the song. Watch out for her famous cackle at 2:09, too.

It's going to be so hard to top this session, people. So hard.

Thank the karaoke gods because Adele is the latest celebrity to join James Corden on a segment of Carpool Karaoke. However, this is only the sneak peek of the upcoming in-car singing session. The full video drops tomorrow.

"Hello, it's me," James says in the clip. "I was wondering if after all these years you would like to meet."

Of course the duo had to have a go at Adele's 2015 hit Hello and we're definitely not complaining. The 27-year-old singer also had some questions about wearing a wig, a problem which she shared with James.

"I can't work out if I should wear a wig wig or have a weave," she said. "I mean what I like is you are coming to me for this advice," James replied, making Adele crack up. 

We can't wait to see what else these two got up to! Watch this space for the full video.
