Ed Sheeran Joins James Corden's 'Carpool Karaoke' in London

Ed Sheeran joined James Corden Tuesday for a special London edition of popular Late Late Show segment, Carpool Karaoke.

Besides singing Ed Sheeran's hit song Shape of You, the pair raced each other to see who could stuff the most maltesers in his mouth. They spoke about Sheeran's hiatus from technology, and how the artist only uses email these days. Sheeran and Corden then proceeded to sing Bieber's hit "Love Yourself", which Sheeran actually wrote himself. Sheeran asked Corden how was it for him when he got his first smartphone.

Corden is hosting three nights of his "Late Late Show" from London this week.

That was followed by an anecdote about how after being hammered at a dive bar in Tokyo, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber ended up on a golf course.

"I'd wake up every morning and there would be like 50 messages and none of them would say 'hey, how are you doing?'" he said.

The Thinking Out Loud singer continued, "It'd be like, 'Can I have this?"

"There is a snack in Britain called Malteasers (chocolates)", Corden said, "I heard you can fit 47 in your mouth".

He recalled: 'I had this driving wedge and I [teed up] and I cracked him across the face!'

He told James Corden during his Carpool Karaoke: '[Justin was] actually really cool about it, surprisingly'.

The British singer also touched on his attachment to his guitar, saying he always feels more comfortable with it in hand.

After singing their hearts out to "Castle on the Hill" but getting stuck in traffic, Ed and James gave the song a little remix.
