(The Late Late Show With James Corden/YouTube)

Canadian crooner Michael Bublé went for a spin riding shot gun with James Corden in the Late Late Show host's famed "Carpool Karaoke" series.

The drive began with much levity as the pair joked about their fluctuating body sizes and Bublé's disdain for saxophones, which he reconsidered after a scat battle with Corden's father jamming on the woodwind from the backseat.

Obligatory karaoke moments included tunes like "It's a Beautiful Day "from Bublé's upbeat songbook. Corden even challenged the singer's voice projection skills by having him wail out an order of espresso from inside the vehicle.

Their drive took an emotional turn when Corden asked the singer about his five-year-old son, Noah, who was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016.

Bublé said:

"It's so hard to acknowledge it because it's so painful to talk about. But obviously we got the diagnosis and that was it man, my whole life ended."

He struggled to find words:

"It's too hard to talk about man. Basically they just said that it wasn't great. And so we took it day by day."

Bublé said the whole family moved to California to get Noah the best possible treatment.

When Corden asked how the family helped each other stay strong through it all, Bublé said:

"When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive. When they got [the cancer] out and the chemo was done and they said, 'We did it, it's good, he's okay,' I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now."

He said both he and his son, who is now in remission, love superheroes. He told Noah, "Spiderman's amazing. Superman's amazing. But they're fake, they're not real. You're a superhero. You're my hero, my real superhero."

Bublé encouraged everyone to please call Stand Up to Cancer. "There's nothing better in the whole world when you give that way that the universe give right back to you."

The pair carried on and lifted viewers' spirits with a heartfelt rendition of the singer's emotional ballad "Home."


People were moved by the episode and how Corden didn't pressure his guest when he struggled to articulate his emotions about Noah.

And audiences appreciated the singer for sharing his deeply emotional story.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.


Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
