Will Smith raps with James Corden in Carpool Karaoke series premiere

In mid-July, we found out that Linkin Park had recently filmed an episode, but the tragic death of frontman Chester Bennington might keep the Carpool Karaoke episode off air. But whether the episode ever sees the light of day will be "completely" up to Bennington's family.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Corden said the Carpool Karaoke crew would "approach [the situation] in whichever manner his family, or the people [who] were involved in that episode, would like it to be handled".

"We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want", he added.

The rockstar and father of six was only 41 when he passed away on July 20th in what was deemed a suicide. He called Bennington's death a "tragedy" and said the decision about whether to air the singer's episode would be entirely up to his family. Other shows will feature a succession of hosts and a star-studded lineup of singers, including Alicia Keys and John Legend, Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane, and Blake Shelton and Chelsea Handler.

If the Note 8 does release with such a large capacity of internal storage, it will be Samsung's first ever smartphone to do so. By applying a bit more pressure on the Galaxy Note 8 screen, users will likely be able to open hidden menus and options.

Corden's comments drew immediate reaction from Bennington's widow, Talinda, who thanked the late-night host for his kind offer.

Meanwhile, showrunner Eric Pankowski confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter: "We've been in conversations with the band and the family, and all the representatives of the band".

Carpool Karaoke: The Series - a 16-episode standalone show based on Corden's popular Late Late Show segment - is set to premiere on August 8 on Apple Music.
