The "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" episode featuring LINKIN PARK has been posted on the band's Facebook and can be seen below.On July 14 — less than a week before singer Chester Bennington's death — LINKIN PARK shared a picture on Twitter with actor Ken Jeong for their episode of the TV spinoff of James Corden's "Late Late Show" sketch. The photo was captioned, "Fun day with [Ken Jeong] [Carpool Karaoke] [Apple Music] — stay tuned." After Bennington's death six days later, Jeong paid tribute to the singer on Twitter, writing, "I am in shock and heartbroken. All my thoughts and prayers go out to Chester and his family and friends at this time." Corden said in August the Apple Music show would "approach it in whichever manner his family, or the people [who] were involved in that episode, would like it to be handled. "We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don't think there's any other way we could deal with it," he added. "It's a tragedy." Talinda Bennington, Chester's wife, responded on Twitter, saying: "Thank you @JKCorden." "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" — a sixteen-episode standalone show executive-produced by Corden — premiered on August 8 on Apple Music. Other celebrities that have appeared on the program include John Legend and Alicia Keys, Billy Eichner and METALLICA, and Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith. Bennington died by suicide on July 20. He was 41. His private funeral service took place on July 29 near his home in Palos Verdes, California. It was attended by five hundred guests, including members of all three bands Bennington sang in: LINKIN PARK, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and DEAD BY SUNRISE.
