Among the names - which included Beyoncé and Sam Smith - was Bruno Mars, who confirmed on Instagram that he will be joining Corden on The Late Late Show.
Mars wrote alongside a picture of himself and the ex-Gavin and Stacy actor: “When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. James Corden. Thanks for the lift.”
Of course, Mars won’t be appearing on the show just for giggles: he’ll be flogging his latest album, 24K Magic, which came out earlier this month.
The album follows 2012 chart-topper Unorthodox Jukebox, which featured hits such as “Treasure” and “Locked Out of Heaven”. Mars has been busy in between albums, releasing 2015 single “Uptown Funk” with Mark Ronson, co-writing Adele’s “All I Ask” and performing at the Super Bowl Half Time show in 2014 and 2016.
Meanwhile, James Corden was recently joined by Lady Gaga for Carpool Karaoke, the duo performing songs such as "Perfect Illusion" and "Bad Romance.”
