James Corden shared a lengthy promo for the upcoming new episode, which kicked off with the “Captain Marvel” co-stars hitting the road in an SUV, flipping on the radio and signing along to Grande’s hit track “7 Rings”.
From Larson’s intense gaze (and awesome black turtleneck and silver pants combo) to Jackson’s impressive commitment to the fun spirit of the tune, this looks like it could be one of the best “Carpool Karaoke” duets of the whole series.
However, the pair weren’t content with simply singing some great pop singles.
After working side-by-side on the new superhero epic for months, they had some important questions for one another, and to keep each other honest, they agreed to get hooked up to a lie detector.
And what did we learn? Larson doesn’t like Jackson’s Kangol hats (even though she claims she does), Jackson loves Larson’s awesome “Captain Marvel” superhero suit, and the 70-year-old star apparently has no problem giving Larson acting notes (among other revelations).
Gwen Stefani was also a fan of the rendition, writing on Twitter that it is “just ridiculously amazing.’
“I’ve been listening to the Ariana Grande album on loop… I love it. I love every single song,” Larson marvelled. “I think it’s so honest, and powerful, and it’s fun to sing. It’s got great dance songs, great ballads, I love Ariana.”

Larson and Jackson’s super fun SUV ride on “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” can be watched now on Apple TV. “Captain Marvel” soars into theatres on March 8.
