Barbra Streisand opens up about stage fright on "Carpool Karaoke"

Barbra Streisand opens up about stage fright on

Barbra Streisand did Carpool Karaoke with James Corden and the video is just what you expected - and wanted.

All of Corden's worries were quelled as the pair sang through the Streisand songbook, including "Don't Rain On My Parade", "The Way We Were", her Donna Summer collaboration "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)", and her mashup of "Imagine" and "What a Wonderful World".

In addition to singing her classics and music from her new album, Walls, Streisand demonstrates how she failed her driving test three times, and how she was able to get Apple's Siri to pronounce her name correctly. "If this is how I go out, I'll take it... died at the hands of Barbra Streisand". But these days she can tell herself, "Let go, and let God".

"Siri is saying my name wrong".

At another point, Corden asked her about "the moment where [she] didn't perform for 27 years".

"I get scared. I just don't want to disappoint people", she explained. "So what's a better way to change my name than by speaking to Apple?"

The British comedian had some amusing moments with the 76-year-old singing legend as she admitted that she's not the best driver.

That's not the only tech genius Streisand has reached out to. "All I can do is write about it", she says. We were prepared to start late, but everything ran on time. "People deserve the truth".

Barbra Streisand may be an EGOT legend, but the "Funny Girl" star still gets stage fright.
