These swimmers can sing! The U.S. Olympic swim team got together to take part in an epic carpool karaoke session (minus James Corden), during which they jammed to Justin Bieber’s “What Do U Mean,” Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and a handful of other pop hits.
In the nearly eight-minute clip above, which was released Thursday, August 4, Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte and dozens more of their Rio-bound teammates prove that their talent extends beyond the water.
After getting their groove on to the Biebs, T. Swift, Cheap Trick’s “In the Street” (you know, the theme song to That ’70s Show) and Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA,” the festivities pause when Carly Rae Jepsen’s infectious 2012 track “Call Me Maybe” comes on.
Franklin, 21, immediately switches the song, saying, “Get it off, get it off!” As sports fans are well aware, the U.S. Olympic swim team filmed a video of themselves lip-synching to Jepsen’s single during a plane ride to training camp in 2012, ahead of the London games.
Instead the four-time gold medalist turns on Fifth Harmony’s “Bo$$” and the crew breaks out into a synchronized car performance complete with expertly executed hand choreography and spirited vocals.
To see Phelps, 31, go full-on country as he croons Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried,” watch the hilarious video above.
The Opening Ceremony for the 2016 Olympic will be held Friday, August 5, at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
