Adele raps Nicki Minaj verses in carpool karaoke, dubs Taylor Swift's squad 'Amazonian'

Adele, the latest celebrity enlisted by "Late Late Show" host James Corden for carpool karaoke, completely dominated the segment with her own music and that of a few others.

She even got emcee Nicki Minaj's attention with her take on the Pinkprint rapper's verse from Kanye West's "Monster," hand maneuvers and all, to Corden's delight. But he wasn't the only one who got a kick out of the mobile performance.

"Pull thru, QUEEN!!!!!" Minaj wrote on Instagram, sharing the clip. "#Adele #Monster the attitude & fingers to match. #Oh #Ok #IcoNic I cried when she waved bye to the careers #Hello #BuhBye."

Then on Twitter, she added: "Adele is mad ratchet. I can't take her #UK #WutsGood." 

The fast-talking Brit drove around rainy London with the late-night host over the holidays, gabbing about a rance of topics including drinking too much wine recently, her devastation over the Spice Girls disbanding and what it would be like if she took on Taylor Swift's squad.

"I wouldn't say we hang out," she said of singer Beyonce. "We're very friendly when we see each other."

After Corden suggested that the "Hello" singer build up a Swiftian crew of famous friends, the two fan-casted who'd be in it.

"I already have a squad," Adele said, listing off some close friends' names.

"But my hunch is if you put together a squad, which is like you, Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence -- she'd bring Amy Schumer -- and then like Emma Stone, Taylor Swift's squad would ... themselves," Corden suggested. "Squad-o on squad-o, my money's on [you]."

But Adele had one major concern.

"They're all like 8-foot. They're Amazonian. Aren't they? They're all so tall. They'd kick us with their long legs," she said.

"I'm not saying they'd win in a running race," he replied, "but you guys would all fight dirty, I'd think."
