But now it's up to Bennington's family to decide if the piece - reportedly filmed July 14, less than a week before Bennington's July 20 passing - will air.

"Carpool Karaoke" follows Corden and another celebrity in a auto in which they sing along to songs by the celebrity or other popular songs.

"We will approach in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled", Corden told the Associated Press.

James Corden's words did not go unnoticed, and Bennington's widow, Talinda, showed her appreciation via Twitter. He also added, "We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes [the family] would want".

The segment spinoff is described as a star-studded auto ride with episodes that "features an unexpected celebrity pairing sharing a vehicle, singing along to their personal playlists, and embarking on adventures", according to Apple Music via 9 to 5 Mac. Bennington died of a suicide in July.

The wildly popular Carpool Karaoke series' crew finds itself in a sensitive position: deciding whether to air its recorded episode with late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington.

In this preview from the upcoming episode from the new series on Apple Music, the "Billy on the Street" star joins the heavy metal hit-makers in a version of their iconic "Enter Sandman" - until suggesting they try something a bit less heavy; say, a tune from "The Little Mermaid".

Carpool Karaoke took the internet by storm and became a huge sensation by giving us a chance to ride around town singing with our favorite celebrities.

Corden, who rapped along with the actor during the show, said he felt he could count Smith among his fans after their first encounter at an awards ceremony, but the Hollywood star said it had been a sham.
