‘Sweet Caroline’ got the Carpool Karaoke treatment at the Grammys
James Corden roped in artists including Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, and Neil Diamond to sing the Red Sox anthem live.
The only thing missing was the Green Monster when a handful of musicians joined host James Corden in a short Carpool Karaoke singalong of “Sweet Caroline” at the Grammys.
Seated in a cardboard cutout of a car, Corden pulled together Neil Diamond, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Faith Hill, Jason Derulo, Ryan Tedder, Keith Urban, and Tim McGraw to perform Diamond’s song.

Red Sox fans lamented the performance on Twitter, noting the stars didn’t seem to know the words that echo through every game at Fenway Park.
This is what happens when you don’t pull a Red Sox fan into a Sweet Caroline sing along #GRAMMYs

The artists at the #Grammys don’t know the words to “Sweet Caroline” clearly aren’t #BostonRedSox fans

If you’re on the East Coast, and a Red Sox fan, and you don’t know the lyrics to Sweet Caroline, you’re not allowed in New England. #Grammys
