Olivia Rodrigo Joins Jimmy Kimmel’s Kids on Their School Commute and Sings Along to Their Favorite Songs.

American singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo surprised television host Jimmy Kimmel’s children while they were on their way to the school. The ‘Driver’s License’ singer pretended to be a hitchhiker on the side of the road while Kimmel along with his wife Molly, and two children, Jane, 9, and William “Billy” John, 6, were driving to the kids’ school. A clip released on Tuesday, shows them singing along with Rodrigo, who Kimmel and his children picked up. In the video, the children can be seen seated in the backseat and complaining about not wanting to go to school before they were joined by the singer.

Upon noticing the “hitchhiker,” Kimmel said, “Oh, there’s a hitchhiker over there, should we pick her up?” As the car drove towards her, they were able to identify Rodrigo, who was wearing a lilac-coloured sweater and black shorts, standing with her thumb pointing up. At the first sight of the singer, Jane exclaimed, “Oh my God Billy, it’s Olivia Rodrigo.” Rodrigo then inquired, “Hey! Do you guys mind if I hitch a ride?” while getting into the back seat of the car. Both the children were visibly shocked and Rodrigo, trying to break the ice, asked them their favourite song by her.

Jane revealed that she “really liked” her song ‘Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl’. Rodrigo responded enthusiastically, “That’s one of my favourites too, that’s so sweet, thank you for saying that.” Billy then shared that he preferred, ‘Get Him Back’. The trio then blasted out singing their favourite songs as they drove to school. Upon reaching the destination, Rodrigo hugged the children and said, “Thank you guys, I feel so loved.”

As Jane was getting ready to head to school, she mouthed to her mother, “Oh my God.” Rodrigo later made an appearance on Kimmel’s live TV show, where he thanked her for “getting up early,” and giving his children “a real thrill.” To this, she said, “It was so much fun. I hope they had a good time,” while he thanked her once again.
