Becoming an EGOT winner is something most artists can only dream about… but for Adele, it’s very attainable.

The acronym stands for those who have won all four major awards in the Hollywood industry – an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

And while the British hitmaker earned her place at the top by scooping up an Emmy for her “Adele: One Night Only” special, 16 Grammys, an Oscar for best original song for “Skyfall,” she has yet to win a Tony.

During Monday’s final “Carpool Karaoke” segment, Adele gave her take on why achieving the ultimate EGOT status is simply not in the cards for her.

“When we did the last Carpool, you were an Oscar winner, you were obviously a Grammy winner, you subsequently won an Emmy for your TV special,” Corden told the “I Drink Wine” singer.

“Which means you are one Tony award away from EGOT. You now have the EGO.”

The singer joked that she’s “always had the ego,” before explaining by her winning a Tony “is never gonna happen.”

“I would never write a musical or anything like that because I f–king hate musicals,” she revealed. “I f–king hate musicals. I don’t think I’ve ever said how much I f–king hate musicals.”

Noting that she “absolutely” respects the art form, Adele added, “I just don’t need to hear everything in f–king song all the time. I also think the EGO suits me better.”

Elsewhere during the ride, the pair recalled Corden’s failed attempt at pranking the singer.

After proudly declaring that “no one can ever prank me,” Adele had it coming to her when Corden decided to go big with a prank a few years back.

“I set up this whole thing — and to say it out loud now, it’s so ridiculous — that there was a wild bear on the loose and we’d flown this animatronic bear from Canada,” said Corden, who sat in the passenger seat this time around.

The “Late Late Show” host explained that his team had coordinated an interview with Adele at a house, where she would then be interrupted by park rangers warning her that the bear was near.

Corden even got CBS News anchor Gayle King in on the joke by having her record a fake news segment about the missing bear, which would be played in Adele’s make-up room.

However, the harmless prank quickly took a turn when someone from Adele’s team — who had been unaware of the prank — spotted one of the hidden cameras and told Adele, 34, prompting her to fear she was being spied on.

After walking into a room covered with posters of herself as well as other Adele merch, the singer quickly confessed to feeling “uncomfortable.”

Her response quickly prompted Corden and his team decided to pull the plug on the joke.
