Christina Aguilera is on fire in Carpool Karaoke.
The pop diva, 37, brought her A-game during her first appearance on The Late, Late Show with James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke segment on Monday night.
She belted out such hits like “Fighter,” “Dirrty,” and “Genie in a Bottle” alongside host James Corden, who seemed in awe of her vocal talent.
“How are you doing that with your voice?” Corden, 39, asked Aguilera after she had growled during a verse in “Fighter.”
“That’s an angsty thing, you’ve got to get your fighter on,” she explained, to which Corden responded he couldn’t copy her as he sounded “like I’ve got something trapped in my throat.”
“Could you find yourself getting lost in Ryan Gosling’s eyes?” Corden asked her.
“I think there were crushes but I… I wasn’t on the train,” she said.
“Were you on the Timberlake train?” Corden asked, which caused Aguilera to appear flustered.
“Um, I think, there was like a… me and Britney… well now you know there was a thing back then.. it was a good time,” she said, struggling with her answer.
“He had swag. Back then he had swag,” she concluded. “But I know Ryan did have a crush on Britney. I think so.”
“She must be regretting that,” Corden said.
When the duo moved on to singing Aguilera’s 2002 single Dirrty, they surprised their audience with Melissa McCarthy, who gave a fierce rendition of Redman’s rap verse.
“You two know each other. You’ve known each other a while, yes?” Corden asked the two.
“We’ve known each other a while,” McCarthy said, nodding. “We did a picture together — Life of the Party.”
“Which we obviously are,” Aguilera added.Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get our best stories of the day delivered straight to your inbox.

The mother of one, who is expecting her second child with boyfriend Andrew Glennon, appeared via a video chat during the reunion, telling Shirley, his wife Kristina, and Dr. Drew that she felt she had been unfairly judged during the season due to her depression stemming from her breakup with ex-fiancé Matt Baier.
“I’m really hurt because the last thing I want is… like… the last thing I want is for people to look at me like that person because it’s not me,” Portwood said, referring to Shirley’s claims that she had been absent from their daughter Leah’s life following her breakup.
“It’s to the point where feel horrible about being depressed and stuff,” she continued. “I don’t know what anybody wants me to do anymore. I’m trying as hard as I can and as long as Leah knows that I love her with all my heart.”
“Even if I’m not a perfect mom — just so she knows I am here for her, that’s all that matters to me. I can’t keep defending myself as a mom, anymore. I don’t know what to do,” she added, sobbing into a cloth.
Shirley attempted to alleviate her emotions, saying, “Our issues what little they were, were a long time ago. I do not, and I will not keep Leah from you, ever.”
In January, Portwood slammed Shirley and Kristina for comments they made about her and her relationship with Glennon.
“She should have waited,” Shirley said, referring to Portwood’s relationship with Glennon after breaking up with ex-fiancé Baier in mid-2017. “She should have taken more time with Leah, and focused on her responsibility as a mother.”Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE?

“I know you’re sad from breaking up with somebody, I get it,” he continued. “From day one, I’ve been a parent, from day one I’ve never let my issues stop me from being a dad,” Shirley said. “I don’t have the option to not be a parent.”
Portwood responded to his comments on Twitter Monday, writing, “Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking s— about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be? Wait..in a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”

The couple walked their very first red carpet together for the premiere of Johansson’s upcoming film, Avengers: Infinity War, on Monday night in Los Angeles, California.
While the two have kept their romance under wraps since they first sparked dating rumors in May 2017, they couldn’t help but look happy in each others’ presence as they smiled at each other and held hands.
Johansson walked alongside the Saturday Night Live actor in an embroidered metallic dress with a black belt while Jost wore a black tux.
Before the big event, the actress, 33, also made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where the host Ellen DeGeneres jokingly set out to tear the couple apart by sharing shocking throwback photo of Jost with a full-grown beard.
“He’s adorable, he’s funny. I’m happy for you,” DeGeneres said during the episode airing on Tuesday, “There’s a picture that John Mulaney, who was fantastic hosting Saturday Night Live, he posted a picture, a throwback of Colin with a beard.”Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE?

She continued, “I thought this was a disguise but that’s really what he looked like. Had you seen that?”
Johansson, 33, looked wide-eyed at the photo before saying, “I mean I can’t unsee it now. Oh my god, it is. Wow.”
“Have I just broke y’all up? Did I do something wrong?” DeGeneres asked.
Johansson continued to look shocked, saying, “I can’t say that that’s an image that I’ll ever forget.”
As for whether the Avengers: Infinity War actress liked to watch SNL, Johansson joked it was “hard to pick” who she liked best on the Weekend Update segment of the show.
“No, it’s not that hard to pick,” the actress said. “I guess I’m a Colin fan, I have to say.”
The couple made their first public appearance in November at the American Museum of Natural History Gala in New York City but skipped the red carpet that time. They’ve kept their romance private and away from most prying eyes despite having become romantically linked in May 2017, when the actress made a special guest appearance on the comedy program’s 2017 finale.
Aside from making jokes about her love life, DeGeneres also broached the subject of a standalone Black Widow film with Johansson and the actress said she believes “there’s room for it.”
“I think the only way to do it is if it were something that we’ve never seen before,” Johansson said. “Something groundbreaking and incredibly badass. But, you know, I think if anybody could make it happen, my boss, Kevin Feige could. I think it could be something really special. There’s definitely a lot of room there.”
