Michael Bublé Opens Up About His 'Superhero' Son's Cancer Battle During 'Carpool Karaoke'—And Now We're Crying
(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.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.
