George Michael might be gone, but he's certainly not forgotten!
Earlier this year, James Corden opened up to Stephen Colbert about the origins of his popular Carpool Karaoke sketch and revealed it all started with George.
Back in 2011, Corden filmed a bit for the charity event Comic Relief for Red Nose Day as his Gavin and Stacey character. What makes the video so AH-Mazing today is Michael appears for a short bit at the beginning and end with James — and the two sang along to Wham! while driving!
It's basically the very FIRST Carpool Karaoke, years before Corden even got hired for CBS' The Late Late Show!

With the legendary performer's recent passing, we definitely felt it appropriate to honor the 53-year-old by taking a look back at how he helped inspire one of the greatest late night sketches EVER!
And as a bonus, the video also includes celebs like Keira Knightley, Rupert Grint, and Justin Bieber stopping by Comic Relief's meeting!
Ch-ch-check out George and James as they jam out to I'm Your Man and let us know your favorite memory of the late singer (below)!
