Kelly Clarkson's Carpool Karaoke turns into date night with her husband

A ride to remember!

If you haven't seen the Carpool Karaoke video series, hosted by the British-accented James Corden, the most recent one with Kelly Clarkson is a good place to start.

For the latest instalment of the "Late Late Show's popular segment, the "American Idol" victor belted out the lyrics to her famous songs including "Since You've Been Gone", "Loft So Soft", "Stronger", "Because of You" and 'Whole Lotta Woman" while riding next to host James Corden. That's when Corden surprised her by bringing Blackstock into the vehicle and setting the couple up with chocolate-covered strawberries, champagne, and a mood-setting violinist.

But when you combine the two, you get something pretty incredible.

"I think it's hard because obviously, I work a lot and I'm a mom, but we try", Clarkson said. "Is this an intervention?"

Later in the sketch, Corden surprised Clarkson by picking up her husband and manager Brandon Blackstock. Complete with fake champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a personal violinist, the couple laughed at the silly yet romantic idea hosted right in the backseat of the vehicle.

Clarkson and Blackstock share 3-year-old daughter River Rose and 19-month-old son Remington, and Blackstock is also dad to 16-year-old daughter Savannah and 10-year-old son Seth. "It's supposed to be a romantic date night!"

"I think you've got a voice where you can make anything sound good" Corden says to Clarkson after the song is over.
