Selena Gomez's 'Carpool Karaoke' is, hands down, better than Justin Bieber's

Selena Gomez's appearance on "Carpool Karaoke" probably isn't getting quite the fan reaction she was hoping for.

Gomez appeared with James Corden on the super-popular The Late Late Show segment, where they made a pit stop at an amusement park and hit up the McDonald's drive-through in between belting out songs in the car — they even sang one of Gomez's hits on the roller coaster, much to the obvious delight of all the people riding behind them.

The problem, though, is that Gomez's fans weren't exactly a fan of this particular performance — the comments section on the video, which is posted to The Late Late Show's YouTube channel, is full of disappointed fans who say that Gomez can't sing.

"She seems like a really nice person but she can't sing," one wrote. Another added, "Funny how James sings better than her lol."

To make matters worse, most of the songs Gomez sang during the segment were her own, and haters were quick to jump on her for that too.

"This is the first carpool i've seen where the singer can't even sing her own songs haha," one commenter wrote.

Others, however, did come to Gomez's defense, pointing out that "Carpool Karaoke" is far from a serious performance.

"Carpool karaokes are supposed to be fun but y'all are in the comments ruining it," one viewer wrote "You could tell at most points she was just messing around so much pettiness in the comments talking about her vocals... Smh"

There is one thing that should comfort Gomez despite all the hate: Her Carpool Karaoke is, by miles, better than her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's, where he could hardly remember any words to the two songs he awkwardly danced along to.
