Michael Phelps Rocks Out With US Olympic Swim Team In Carpool Karaoke

Inspired by James Corden’s wildly popular segment, the entire team USA got together for one epic ride before heading off to Rio.

Ahead of the Summer Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, athletes from the 2016 U.S. swim team participated in an incredible carpool karaoke montage that will give “Late Late Show” host James Corden a run for his money.

Forty athletes, including superstars Michael Phelps, Nathan Adrian and Missy Franklin, piled into their cars with a bunch of cameras to sing and dance along to music for almost eight minutes. They even rocked out to the theme songs from “Friends” and "Pokemon," because how could they not?

The swimmers channeled their inner singers with tunes ranging from Justin Beiber and Taylor Swift to Flo Rida and Fifth Harmony. The teammates  also made a much-needed pit stop in the drive through of a fast food restaurant and asked passersby “which way to Rio?”

Although there were some skips (Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” for instance), everyone unanimously decided to close off the epic karaoke with America's other national anthem: Miley Cyrus' 2009 smash hit "Party in the U.S.A."

Watch the complete carpool karaoke in the video above.
