Several media criticize the premiere of Carpool Karaoke on Apple Music — 2022
At the beginning of the previous week, Apple Music premiered the first chapter of its new series Carpool Karaoke . For those who still do not know what Carpool Karaoke is, we make you a brief resume in the following paragraphs.
This new Apple series seeks to unite 3 areas: Music, the program based on The Late Late Show and, of course, Apple Music . In this first chapter, James Corden acts as presenter in an interview with celebrities with the peculiarity that the set where it is recorded is a car. All the participants travel by car while always having a conversation about some topic linked to the music. Apple's intention is to bring together two familiar faces, not always related to music, so that in the course of the program they sing and drive with their favorite playlists.
As it has been known, in this first season it is expected to have the participation of: Will Smith with James Corden; Miley, Noah, Billy Ray and the entire Cyrus family; Shakira and Trevor Noah; Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams; Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith; John Legend, Alicia Keys, and Taraji P. Henson; LeBron James and James Corden….
But what has been the reaction to the first episode of Carpool Karaoke?
As with everything, there are opinions for all tastes and starting from that Apple Music's strong point is not television (although this program is not broadcast on television) has received some criticism from the prestigious media, such as The Guardian. On the other hand, Eddy Cue has praised the premiere of this series, showing a positive assessment of it.
The Guardian literally expressed the following sentence: Carpool Karaoke, discreet ideas supported by celebrities . As this newspaper explained, they have not seen in this program a project for the future in this first installment of Carpool Karaoke.
Despite this somewhat uncertain criticism, taking into account the little margin he has been given to be able to comment on the success or failure of the program when it only takes one episode , Apple Music and, in general, Apple trust that this new stage in which it has been involved will grow as the episodes progress.
The Guardian criticized the first episode but as we said, not everything looks the same for all people, Eddy Cue , vice president of software and Internet services at Apple, highly praised the connection between Apple Music and the program , to which was added the no need to explain the meaning of the program to the audience: it is the perfect fit for its connection between music and pop culture.
Accompanying the media outlet The Guardian, Variety also showed its criticism before the show, saying verbatim that it's another unscripted series about famous people with varying degrees of talent, some of it choreographed.
As we are used to seeing in everything that encompasses large companies, criticism is the order of the day and will always be in the judgment of the media. Despite this, Apple will continue its journey in this program with a new episode that will take place tomorrow on Apple Music.
