List Rules Vote up the acts who'd be the most fun to see perform in an extra informal setting.

Few things are more humanizing than watching someone go off to their favorite song while driving around. Whether it's your best friend or your favorite actor, once the tunes start flowing, people's true colors come out on full display. 

Carpool Karaoke figured out how to turn this pleasant bit of human nature into a successful business model back in 2015. While the show got its start as a segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden, it became its own entity in 2016 after Apple scooped it up. 

So far, the series has managed to attract some pretty big names; everyone from Paul McCartney to Justin Bieber to Michelle Obama have buckled in and belted out often-questionable covers. Even so, there are more than a few overlooked musicians who need to be on carpool karaoke. 

Tons of '70s rock groups still need to hop on board (looking at you Rolling Stones), and it's obviously the perfect place for the long-overdue Oasis reunion. Since there isn't infinite space in the car, some tough calls need to be made. So, which stars do you most want to see sing their hearts out on Carpool Karaoke? 

Vote up the acts who'd be the most fun to see perform in an extra informal setting.
