Oh, and did we mention Adele's revelations of how she got drunk at a restaurant?

Corden and Adele came together for the Carpool Karaoke section on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Stevie Wonder and Justin Bieber have earlier sung along with Corden while the host drove them around but however awesome those rides were, this one is simply epic.

Rolling in the Deep and Someone Like You are also belted out but Adele’s cover of Nicki Minaj’s Monster is definitely the highlight of the car ride. It even caught Minaj’s attention:

But don’t just go by what we say. Watch the video here for yourself:
