No one says “no” to Gaston!

So when Jonathan Ross asked Luke Evans – who plays the French villain in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast – to preview his titular song, fellow talk-show guests Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton couldn’t help but sing along.

Evans nailed the impromptu rendition alongside Jackman, who took advantage of the opportunity to show off his pipes with the help of some sheet music. But the real standout was his Eddie the Eagle costar Egerton, who kicked off the opening verse from memory and sang beautifully, earning a round of applause from the audience and leading Ross to quip that it was “like working with Mariah Carey.”

The group performance was a rare glimpse into the highly anticipated musical, which is the latest of Disney’s highly successful live-action adaptations of its beloved animated fairy tales. The film is slated for March 2017, and stars Emma Watson as Belle, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Dan Stevens as Beast.

Hugh Jackman’s Changing Looks!

Outside of The Jonathan Ross Show, fans have been limited to a cast group selfie, and a bromance picture of Evans and Josh Gad (who plays Le Fou) on the foot of some snowy steps to hold them over.

Egerton, meanwhile, addressed rumors that he is the frontrunner for another much-discussed Disney project, the role of a young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off. While Egerton acknowledged he has heard the rumors, he insisted he has not been contacted for the part.

He did, however, break out a very impressive Chewbacca rendition.
