James is dropping the basketball and picking up a microphone to passionately sing "Maniac" with no one other than "Carpool Karaoke" host, James Corden. Now, the future of that episode will be up to Bennington's family, Corden told the Associated Press on Tuesday. In the full version of the episode available exclusively to Apple Music they get rid of the auto and hop into a helicopter instead to perform the R Kelly classic "I Believe I Can Fly". 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. "It's completely up to them and that's a conversation we haven't even though about having right now", he said. "We've been in conversations with the band and the family, and all the representatives of the band".

"We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled", Corden said of the episode, which was originally set to air in October.

Corden's message was appreciated by Bennington's widow, Talinda - who thanked him for his words on Twitter.

James Corden filmed a Carpool Karaoke session with Linkin Park before band member Chester Bennington's tragic suicide, and now whether or not the segment will air is in serious jeopardy.

Bennington was laid to rest in a private funeral held near his home in California on July 29.

Chester Bennington of Linkin Park performs "Burn It Down" at the 40th American Music Awards in Los Angeles November 18, 2012.
